Gosho quote for 1st of the month
"Although I and my disciples may encounter various difficulties, if we do not harbor doubt in our hearts we will as matter of course attain Buddahood. We should not have doubts simply because Heaven does not lend us protection. We should not be discouraged because we do not enjoy an easy and secure existence in this life. This is the way I instruct my disciples morning and evening, and yet they begin to harbor doubts and turn away from me."
"The Opening of the Eyes"
