Nichiren on evaluating the attainments of Jikaku

"This man encountered great troubles twice, once when he was alive and again at the time of his death. The troubles he met when he was alive were the kind that customarily go with practice of the Buddhist teaching, adornments to the activities and achievements of a sage or worthy man. But the humiliations he suffered in his manner of death and thereafter were the type of disgrace invited by an evil or a foolish man, one who slanders the correct Law. He was like the Great Arrogant Brahman or Shuri."
