Nichiren Daishonin states in “On Attaining Buddhahood”:

Even a tarnished mirror will shine like a jewel if it is polished. A mind which is presently clouded by illusions originating from the innate darkness of life is like a tarnished mirror, but once it is polished it will become clear, reflecting the enlightenment of immutable truth. Arouse deep faith and polish your mirror day and night. How should you polish it? Only by chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《一生成佛抄》曰:

譬如暗镜,若经琢磨则视之如玉,今一念无明之迷心乃未磨之镜也。若磨之,必成法性真如之明镜。应深发信心,日夜朝暮不懈磨之。如何磨之,只奉唱南无妙法莲华经,是云磨也。
