Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Sunday, February 24, 2013:

No matter how humble a person may be, if his wisdom is the least bit greater than yours, you should ask him about the meaning of the sutra. But the people in this evil age are so arrogant, prejudiced, and attached to fame and profit that they are afraid that, should they become the disciple of a humble person or try to learn something from him, they will be looked down upon by others. They never rid themselves of this wrong attitude, so they seem to be destined for the evil paths.

The Fourteen Slanders
Written to the lay priest Matsuno Rokuro Saemon on December 9, 1276
