Nichiren and the "poison-drum relationship"

"According to the above passage of the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai, in this latter age the persons who are lacking in good roots are many, and those who possess them are few. Therefore, many people are doubtless destined to fall into the evil paths in their next existence. And if they are destined for the evil paths in any case, then one should preach the Lotus Sutra to them forcefully and thereby allow them to create a “poison-drum relationship” with the sutra. Hence there can be no doubt that this latter age is the proper time in which to preach the Lotus Sutra to all people, thus enabling them to create a reverse relationship with it by slandering it."

  1. hear, hear ! people like pay dirt and dornob lack the capacity to understand this.. however, it matter not...cause and effect is cause and effect even if one is ignorant ! this is taught in the never disparaging chapter that these people and the sgi/nst can't grasp. very sad.
