Nichiren Daishonin states in “Reply to Soya”:
Trying to attain enlightenment without admonishing slander of the Law is like seeking water in fire or fire in water. How useless! No matter how earnestly one upholds faith in the Lotus Sutra, a single act of slander will cause one to fall into hell without fail. It is like a single crab leg, which can ruin a thousand pots of lacquer. This is what is meant by, “The poison has penetrated deeply, causing them to lose their true mind.”

宗祖日莲大圣人于《曾谷殿御返事》曰:
不责谤法而祈愿成佛,如火中求水,水中寻火。渺茫也。渺茫也。无论何等信奉法华经,若有谤法必堕地狱矣。如漆千杯入一蟹足。『毒气深入,失本心故』者是也。
