三大秘法稟承事一 Receiving the Three Great Secret Law 1

()れ法華経の第七神力品に云く、

In volume seven of the Lotus Sutra, the “Supernatural Powers” chapter, it is stated:

(よう)を以て之を言ば如来の一切の所有(しょう)の法、如来の一切の自在の神力、如来の一切の秘要の蔵、如来の一切の甚深の()、皆此経に於て宣示(せんじ)顕説(けんぜつ)す」等云云、

“To put it briefly, all the doctrines possessed by the Thus Come One, all the freely exercised supernatural powers of the Thus Come One, the storehouse of all the secret essentials of the Thus Come One, all the most profound matters of the Thus Come One—all these are proclaimed, revealed,and clearly expounded in this sutra.”

釈に云く「経中の要説の要、四事に在り」等云云、

The commentary [by T’ien-t’ai] on this says: “The essence of all the essential passages in the Lotus Sutra is the four matters [represented by the four phrases].”

問う、所説の要言の法とは何物ぞや、

Question: What is the Law that represents the essence that has been set forth?

答て云く、()れ釈尊初成道より四味三教乃至法華経の広開三(こうかいさん)顕一(けんいち)の席を立ちて(りゃく)(かい)(ごん)(けん)(のん)を説かせ給いし涌出品(ゆじゅつぼん)まで秘せさせ給いし実相(じっそう)(しょう)(とく)当初(そのかみ)、修行し給いし処の寿量品の本尊と戒壇と題目の五字なり、

Answer: It consists of the object of devotion, the sanctuary, and the five characters of the daimoku [which are termed the Three Great Secret Laws] of the “Life Span” chapter. After Shakyamuni Buddha first attained enlightenment, when he was setting forth the four flavors and three teachings, and when he was preaching the part of the Lotus Sutra that deals with the expanded replacement of the three vehicles with the one vehicle, until he preached the “Emerging from the Earth” chapter and opened the near and revealed the distant in concise form, he kept this Law secret. But it was set forth in the “Life Span” chapter, which deals with the true aspect as he came to understand and practice it in an age long ago.

教主釈尊此の秘法をば三世に隠れ無き()(げん)文殊(もんじゅ)等にも譲り給はず、況や其の以下をや、

This secret Law of Shakyamuni Buddha, the lord of teachings, was not entrusted to Universal Worthy or Manjushrī, bodhisattvas who are widely known in the three existences of past, present, and future, muchless to any being of lesser importance.
