Nichiren Daishonin states in “On Chanting the Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra”:
In the Latter Day of the Law, there are many who lack the seed of Buddhahood, while few possess it. Thus, there is no doubt that the people will fall into the evil paths. Since they are going to fall into the evil paths one way or another, we should strongly teach and make them listen to the Lotus Sutra and let them form a poison-drum relationship with it. It is therefore certain that now is the time to create a reverse relationship by propagating the Lotus Sutra.
