The Power of Sincerity

       建治元年七月二日 五十四歳御作  

        2 July 1275Age:54


(しら)(むぎ)一俵・小白(こしら)(むぎ)一俵・河のり五()ふ、送り()(おわ)んぬ。

I have received the sack of polished barley, the sack of polished wheat, and the five packets of river nori that you were kind enough to send.

Thank you for one bale of polished barley, one bale of wheat flour and five bundles of river seaweed, which I have received.

仏の御弟子に阿那(あな)(りつ)尊者と申せし人は()さなくしての御名をば如意(にょい)と申す。如意と申すは心のおもひのた()らをふらししゆへなり。

The Venerable Aniruddha, a disciple of the Buddha, in his youth bore the name At Will. He was called At Will because he could cause to rain down any manner of treasures that his heart desired.

One of Shakyamuni Buddha’s senior disciples was named Aniruddha but as a child he was known as Nyoi, because of his ability to manifest showers of whatever treasure he desired.

このよしを仏にとひまいらせ給いしかば、昔()えたる()(えん)(がく)と申す聖人をひゑ()はん()をもつて供養しまいらせしゆへと答えさせ給う。

If one asked the Buddha why he was born with such power, the Buddha would reply that it was because, long ago, in a time of famine, Aniruddha had presented a humble meal of millet as an offering to a sage who was a cause-awakened one.

When asked how he had come to possess this ability, the Buddha explained that Aniruddha had earned it in a past life as a reward for offering a bowl of cooked millet to a Pratyekabuddha in a time of famine.
