Nichiren Daishonin states in the “Hell and Buddhahood” : Neither the pure land nor hell exists outside ourselves; both lie within our own hearts. Awakened to this truth, one is called a Buddha; deluded about it, he is a common mortal. The Lotus Sutra awakens us to this reality, and one who embraces the Lotus Sutra will find that hell is itself the enlightened land.

宗祖日莲大圣人于“上野殿后家尼御返事”曰: 夫云净土或地狱皆不存于外,只在我等之胸中。悟此者云佛,迷于此者云凡夫。悟此者乃法华经也。若然,奉持法华经者,即悟地狱即寂光。
