[To My Friends] THU 4 OCT 2018–“Because people propagate the Law, both people and the Law are respectworthy.”

Nichiren Daishonin states,
“[B]ecause people propagate [the Law],
  both people and the Law are
  respectworthy.”(*)
Those who talk about and widely share
  the Mystic Law with others are
  “champions of the people” and
  “championesses of happiness.”
Let’s advance with this pride and conviction!
(*) From “Hyaku Rokka Sho” (The One Hundred and Six Comparisons), GZ 856 (not included in WND,  vols. 1 or 2) Full quote: “The Law does not spread by itself: because people propagate it, both people and the Law are respectworthy.”
