Nichiren Daishonin states in “The Bodies and Minds of Ordinary Beings”:
One who presented a simple meal of millet to the Pratyekabuddha became the Universal Brightness Buddha (Fumyo nyorai). One who offered a mud pie to the Buddha became the sovereign of Jambudvipa. Even if a person performs good deeds, if these deeds are offered to that which is not true, they may bring forth great evil, but they will never produce any good effect. However, even if a person is unintelligent in mind and presents only paltry offerings, if he extends them to an individual who embraces the truth, he will receive tremendous merits. How much more so would be the merit of those who make sincere offerings to the true Law?!
