Each individual is a good person. It is only because one has evil (greed and arrogance)thoughts that one appears to be bad. In the Tip of the Writing Brush (Ofudesaki) is the following:
Among all mankind, there is no one who is evil. It is only a bit of dust stuck on. 1-53.
This is why it is important to pray for those who have evil in their minds. We ask God to help these essentially good people to eliminate greed, arrogance, and self love from their hearts. We do not wish malice or ill will on our brothers and sisters.
Also in the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is stated that this Universe is the body of God. If this is true, we are part of God. God is Good, so as part of God, we are good. Let us hope that the world realizes that all human beings are essentially good. We must pray that all mankind will eliminate evil from their hearts!
