Nichiren Daishonin states in “The True Entity of Life”:
There should be no discrimination among those who propagate the five characters of Myoho-Renge-Kyo in the Latter Day of the Law, be they men or women. Were they not Bodhisattvas of the Earth, they could not chant the daimoku.
Although I, Nichiren alone, at first chanted Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, two, three, and a hundred people gradually began to chant and propagate it. Likewise, propagation will continue this way in the future.
日莲一人首唱 南无妙法莲华经 ，继而二人、三人、百人次第传唱之， 未来亦然。
