And the good fortune of all Buddhas is as light as Bonten's featherweight robe, while the good fortune of one character of the Lotus Sutra is as weighty as the earth.

Concretely speaking, what kinds of benefits can one expect?

 

The Bunbetsu kudoku (seventeenth) chapter of the Lotus Sutra expounds the following:

1. You will enjoy a life condition in which you can establish and support the temples in which the Gohonzon is enshrined.

2. You will be able to correctly understand Buddhism and explain it to people. You will also gain good friends in true Buddhism.

3. Your words and deeds will become correct and pure.

4 You will have peace of mind and your thoughts will become profound. You will develop patience, and anger will disappear.

5. You will be uninfluenced by the evils in your environment and be able to continuously perform good deeds.

6. Your senses will become sharp, your intellect will become clear, and your wisdom will deepen.

7. You will be able to correctly make use of the good teachings and positive knowledge and gain the power to resolve difficult problems. (Kaiketsu, p. 535 [summarized])
