Let’s read the Gosho regularly. Even just a little is fine. Even a single sentence. Just opening the Gosho is a start. At any rate, let’s strive to read the Daishonin’s writings. It’s important to have the spirit to study the Gosho, to open up the Gosho. Even if you forget what you’ve read, something profound will have been engraved in the depths of your life.
