Nichiren Daishonin states in “Reply to Shijo Kingo”:
(Another title: The Eight Winds)

If master and disciple pray with differing minds, their prayers will be as futile as trying to kindle a fire on water. Even if they pray with one mind, their prayers will go unanswered if they have long slandered True Buddhism by adhering to inferior teachings. Eventually, both will be ruined.
檀那与师之心不和之祈願, 如水上焚火。又檀那与师之心虽和,若年久持小法以犯大法,其人之祈願非但未果,我身及檀那亦皆灭。
