Special Inscriptions written by Nichiren Shonin on this Prayer Gohonzon

If parents have seven children and one of them falls ill, the love of the parents is equal for all the children but they are especially attentive to the one who is sick.

There are three kinds of people whose illnesses are very hard to cure:
One who speaks ill of Mahayana teachings,
One who commits the five cardinal sins,
One who is an icchantika.
These three kinds of serious illnesses are difficult to cure in this world.

Namu Myohorengekyo

This sutra is truly a splendid medicine for the diseases of the people of Jambudvipa. A sick person who hears this will be immediately cured of his disease. He will not grow old or die before his time.

If a child who has lost his original mind, upon seeing his father return from afar, greatly rejoices and yet when the father gives him the medicine to heal his illness, he is unwilling to swallow it. Thereupon the father says, "This good excellent medicine I now leave here. You should take and swallow it. Do not worry that you will not be cured."

This is the great unprecendented Mandala, never yet been in the whole of Jambudvipa for the more than 2220 years after the Buddha's extinction.
