Nichiren Daishonin states in “Many in Body, One in Mind”:
I believe that despite their small numbers, if Nichiren and his followers have the spirit of many in body, one in mind, they certainly will accomplish their great purpose and the Lotus Sutra will spread. No matter how numerous evils may be, they will never defeat the single truth. This can be compared to a stream of water extinguishing many raging fires. This is true of Nichiren and his followers.
