Nichiren Daishonin states in “The Swords of Good and Evil”:
Should Nichiren die before you, I will come to meet you at the moment of your death. If you should die before I do, I will be sure to tell King Emma everything about you. All that I tell you is true. According to the Lotus Sutra, Nichiren is the guide on the difficult road to enlightenment. Devote yourself single-mindedly to the faith with the aim of reaching Eagle Peak.
