|The temporary forms that the Buddha manifests in response to the capacity of the
people are not the true Buddha. Rather than the Buddha with thirty-two features and
eighty characteristics, it is the characters of the Lotus Sutra that are the true Buddhas.

never became Buddhas themselves. After the Buddha's passing, of those who believe in
the Lotus Sutra "not a one will fail to attain Buddhahood." These are the golden words
of the Thus Come One.
