Nichiren writes:
“In essence, the appearance of the treasure tower indicates that on hearing the Lotus Sutra the three groups of voice-hearers perceived for the first time the treasure tower within their own lives.

Now Nichiren’s disciples and lay supporters are also doing this. In the Latter Day of the Law, no treasure tower exists other than the figures of the men and women who embrace the Lotus Sutra.

It follows, therefore, that whether eminent or humble, high or low, those who chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo are themselves the treasure tower, and, likewise, are themselves the Thus Come One Many Treasures.

No treasure tower exists other than Myoho-renge-kyo. The daimoku of the Lotus Sutra is the treasure tower, and the treasure tower is Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.”

“You, yourself, are a Thus Come One who is originally enlightened and endowed with the three bodies. You should chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with this conviction.

Then the place where you chant daimoku will become the dwelling place of the treasure tower.

The sutra reads, “If there is any place where the Lotus Sutra is preached, then my treasure tower will come forth and appear in that spot.””

As near as I can tell, it's a variation on the Kobayashi Maru.

I feel you, dawg.

The Kobayashi Maru transcends 'Star Trek', as the three gates, the three keys and the easter egg transcend(s) 'Ready Player One', as the three bodies transcend(s) Buddhism.

What do I win?

Ummmm... Who's Ricky?

It's important to know who he's associated with, so that I know to submit to his authority.
