Likewise, the Contemplation on the Mind-Ground Sutra states: “If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present.”

(The Opening of the Eyes, Writings [Gosho] of Nichiren Daishonin, page 279)
