Next about the second point, which is to keep the precepts, Nichiren Daishonin states in ‘Jippokai myo inga sho’ as follows:
“Concerning to be born as a human, the power of one’s five precepts in his past life was strong and the power of his karmic causes for three evil paths was weak so one will be born as a human.” (Gosho, p. 207)

Should the bold part be which is keeping the precepts?

Thanks.

Yes, that does sound better. However, there is nothing in the quote about keeping the precepts, so I assume it will come later in the writing.

Thanks, FounDit. The precepts has been stated earlier.
