After Gongyo, I usually read from the Lotus Sutra or Gosho. I found this passage:
"The Bhagavat is truly marvelous. His actions are rare. He teaches the Dharma according to the natural capacities of the beings in the world through skillful means, wisdom, and insight. He leads sentient beings away from their various attachments. We have no words to describe The Buddha's qualities. Only the Buddha, the Bhagavat, is able to know our deep intentions and original vow." LS
If the mind is Buddha and Buddha is no other than the mind (WND), would we say this is an analogy of the wisdom and insight our true nature (Buddha-nature) is in us? Nichiren put more emphasis on The Dharma rather than The Buddha. So, when it says "The Buddha is able to know our deep intentions and original vow" what is that saying? Is it the historical Buddha who knows this by how he describes who he is (our mind personified?) as the many manifestations of himself: wisdom, compassion, etc? Is he really in us, as The Sutra (the Gohonzon) teaches?
How would we (any Buddhist) interpret this? Even in a general view.
