Gosho 撰時抄 The Selection of the Time


()れ仏法を学せん法は、必ず先づ時をならうべし

When it comes to studying the teachings of Buddhism, one must first learn to understand the time.

彼の(ほとと)(ぎす)は春ををくり(にわ)(とり)は暁をまつ、

The cuckoo sings when spring is waning, the cock waits until the break of day to crow.


畜生すら()をかくのごとし、

If even these lowly creatures have such an understanding of time,

(いか)(いわん)や仏法を修行せんに時を(たださ)ざるべしや。

then how can a person who wishes to practice the teachings of Buddhism fail to make certain what time it is?

問うて云く機にあらざるに大法を授けられば愚人は定めて誹謗をなして悪道に堕るならば(あに)説く者の罪にあらずや、

Question: If one preaches the great Law to people who do not have the capacity to understand it, then the foolish ones among them will surely slander it and will fall into the evil paths of existence. Is the person who does the preaching not to blame for this?

答えて云く人(みち)をつくる、路に迷う者あり作る者の罪となるべしや、

Answer: If a man builds a road for others and someone loses his way on it, is that the fault of the road-builder?

良医・薬を病人にあたう、病人嫌いて服せずして死せば良医の(とが)となるか。

If a skilled physician gives medicine to a sick person but the sick person, repelled by the medicine, refuses to take it and dies,should one blame the physician?
