Nichiren Daishonin states in “Reply to Hyo’e-sakan (Hyo’e sakan dono-gohenji)”:

Changes certainly occur when the high tide yields to low tide, when the moon rises and sets, when summer gives way to autumn, or winter turns to spring. The same is true when a common mortal attains Buddhahood. At a critical moment, he definitely will encounter the three obstacles and four devils. The wise will rejoice, while the foolish will retreat.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《兵卫志殿御返事》曰:

潮退潮满、月出月没,夏与秋、冬与春,必有相违之事。凡夫之成佛亦如是,必出现三障四魔之障,贤者悦,愚者退,此也。
