HOW THOSE INITIALLY ASPIRING TO THE WAY CAN
ATTAIN BUDDHAHOOD THROUGH THE LOTUS SUTRA
Gosho Zenshu, p. 544
. . . In kindling a fire, three things are needed: a good piece of steel, a good flint and
good tinder. The same is true of prayer. Three things are required -- a good teacher, a
good believer, and a good doctrine -- before the prayers can be effective and disasters
banished from the land.
