Bluer than Indigo

One who practices still more earnestly whenever he hears the teachings
of the Lotus Sutra is a true seeker of the Way. When T'ien-t'ai
stated, "From the indigo, an even deeper blue," he meant that
something dyed with indigo becomes even bluer than the indigo plant
itself. For us the Lotus Sutra is the indigo plant, and the growing
intensity of our practice is "an even deeper blue."
