The excellent physician and the good excellent medicine

Who do we thank when we are cured of a serious ailment? We thank the physician, not the medicine. In like manner, when we chant the Daimoku to the Gohonzon, we thank the Excellent Physician, Shakyamuni Buddha of the Juryo Chapter of the Lotus Sutra who prescribed the medicine and his emmisary Nichiren Daishonin who dispensed the medicine. We don't thank the Daimoku, the good excellent medicine.
