Many people accept the Lotus Sutra upon hearing it. However, it is rare to find those who “remember and never forget” when the great hardships they have heard about actually befall them. Accepting is easy, but continuing is difficult. But one must maintain one’s faith in order to attain Buddhahood. Those who uphold this sutra must be prepared to undergo hardships. However, there is no doubt that, “they will be able to instantly attain the unsurpassed Buddha way.”

宗祖日莲大圣人于《四条金吾殿御返事》曰:
闻受此经者众,如实闻受,然大难来时仍“忆持不忘”者稀也。受易持难,故成佛在於持。应知持此经之人当值难。“则为疾得无上佛道”无疑。
