Principle behind the Gohonzon

The Gohonzon exists for the enlightenment and genuine happiness of all people throughout the eternal future of the Latter day of the Law.
Enabling all living beings to attain the same enlightenment as Buddhas - that is Shakyamuni's vow and the wish of all Buddhas throughout the three existences of past, present, and future. Nichiren Daishonin was the first person to reveal the object of devotion, the Gohonzon, for actualizing this wish, manifesting it in the form of  a "great mandala".

-The deeper the roots, the more prolific the branches
