Nichiren Says...

"The debt of gratitude owed to one's father and mother is as vast as the ocean. If one cares for them while they are alive but does nothing to help them in their next life, it will be like a mere drop of water."

...from The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
On Filial and Unfilial Conduct
Written to Nanjo Tokimitsu on March 8,1280
