GKnowledge of the harmony, and setecrs, of the universe does not mean there would be no conflict with those who are ignorant, or just refuse to open up to anything beyond their instincts.Nichiren had disciples who were both samurai, trained warrior lords, and peasants.The samurai, and warrior lords understood the teachings to differing degrees. The peasants just found that they were able to garner more value in their lives, and hope for the future, as long as they strove to follow Nichiren’s teachings. Even the most enlightened among them, had to take up arms to protect the Sage when the ignorant, and misdirected attempted to kill him.Enlightenment, kindness, compassion have always been bitterly fought by those who wish to impose their primal drives on others.
