Nichiren Daishonin states in “The Three Obstacles and Four Devils”:

There is definitely something extraordinary in the ebb and flow of the tide, the rising and setting of the moon, and the way in which summer, autumn, winter and spring give way to each other. Something uncommon also occurs when an ordinary person attains Buddhahood.

At such a time, the three obstacles and four devils will invariably appear, and the wise will rejoice while the foolish will retreat.


潮退潮满、月出月入, 夏与秋、冬与春,其间必有相异之事。凡夫之成佛亦如是,必有三障四魔之障出现。贤者悦,愚者退,此也。
