TEACHING PRACTICE AND PROOF
. . .Myohorengekyo, the heart of the essential teaching of the Lotus Sutra, contains
all the benefits amassed by the beneficial practices and meritorious deeds of all
the Buddhas throughout the past, present and future. Then, how can this phrase not
include the benefits obtained by observing all the Buddha's precepts? Once the
practitioner embraces this perfectly-endowed mystic precept, he cannot break it,
even if he tries.
