Persecution by Swords and Staves

                  弘安二年四月二十日 五十八歳 
                  20 April 1279 (Age:58)

(そもそも)日蓮、種種(しゅじゅ)の大難の中には(たつの)(くち)(くび)の座と東条の難にはすぎず。其の故は諸難の中には(いのち)をすつる(ほど)の大難はなきなり。

The greatest of all the persecutions that I have suffered were the attempted beheading at Tatsunokuchi and the attack at Tōjō. None of the others were direct attempts on my life.

Of the major persecutions that I, Nichiren, have encountered, the most severe were my near beheading at Tatsunokuchi and the attack at Tojo for none of the others came as near to ending my life.

或はのりせめ、或は処をおわれ、無実を云いつけられ、或は面をうたれしなどは物のかずならず。

I have been reviled, denounced, ousted, falsely accused, and struck across the face, but these were all comparatively minor incidents.

I have been cursed, denounced, banished, falsely charged and struck in the face, but these were all minor in comparison.

されば色心の二法よりをこりてそし()られたる者は、日本国の中には日蓮一人なり。ただし、ありとも法華経の故にはあらじ。

I, Nichiren, am the only person in Japan to be abused in both body and mind [on account of the Lotus Sutra]. If anyone else has been slandered as I have, it was not because of the Lotus Sutra.

In the country of Japan, I alone have been subjected to such mental and physical abuse. If anyone else has ever been similarly abused, it was certainly not for the sake of the Lotus Sutra.

さてもさても、わす()れざる事は()うばう(輔房)が法華経の第五の巻を取りて日蓮がつら()をうちし事は、三毒よりをこる処のち()うち()くなり。

 One incident in particular I can never forget is how Shō-bō seized the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra and struck me across the face with it. His attack on mestemmed from the three poisons.

There is one attack in particular I can never forget, the time when Sho-bo, motivated by the three poisons, seized the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra and struck me across the face with it.
