Great Evil and Great Good
Great events do not have small omens. When great evil occurs, great good will follow. Since the worst slander already prevails throughout the country, the supreme True Law will spread without fail. What have any of you to regret? Although you are not the Venerable Mahakashyapa, you should leap for joy! Although you are not Shariputra, you should rise and dance! When Bodhisattva Jogyo emerged from the earth, he leapt forth joyfully, and when Bodhisattva Fugen arrived, the ground trembled in six directions. There are many things I wish to tell you, but as they are too numerous, I shall stop here. I will write to you again.
