Nichiren writes this letter to the wife of a follower of Lotus Sutra doctrine as one of Nichiren's students. The wife has assembled a Summer robe for Nichiren and sent it as an offering for Nichiren. The tender words of appreciation from Nichiren for the gift is interpreted as an offering to the Lotus Sutra via Nichiren's promulgation efforts and respect for the "cause" thereby made by this woman. This letter is a reminder to us that no matter how overwhelming our lives might seem, it is [paramount to appreciate those small things that buoy us through our lives and efforts.
