Buddhism Day by Day

Wisdom for Modern Life by Daisaku Ikeda
Sunday, September 7, 2014:

How painful and frightening is the prospect of death for human beings! No matter how wealthy or powerful we may be, all is vanity before death. Everything is empty, like a dream or an illusion. But people do not face this fact. Nichiren Buddhism teaches us that we can transform our karma and attain a supremely peaceful death that is the start of a journey to our next lives.

Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Sunday, September 7, 2014:

The blessings from making offerings to a votary of the Lotus Sutra in the latter age exceed even those from making offerings to a Thus Come One endowed with the ten honorable titles, while those who persecute a votary of the Lotus Sutra in the defiled age will have their heads split into seven pieces.

The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 595
Letter to the Lay Nun of Ko
Written to the lay nun of Ko on June 16, 1275
