Nichiren Daishonin states in “The Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra”: About the character “myo”, the Lotus Sutra says, “This sutra opens the door of expedient teachings and reveals the true aspect of reality.”

The Great Teacher Zhang-an comments on this as follows: “Myo means to reveal the depths of the secret storehouse.”

And the Great Teacher Miao-lo says of this, “To reveal means to open.”

Hence the character myo means to open. If there is a storehouse full of treasures but no key, then it cannot be opened, and if it cannot be opened, then the treasures cannot be seen.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《法华题目抄》曰:妙者,法华经云:“开方便门,示真实相”。
章安大师解释:“发秘密之奥藏, 称之为妙”。
妙乐大师说:“发者开也”。
因此, 妙即是开。世间积财之藏,无钥匙则难开之,不开则不见藏内之财
