      弘安元年六月二十五日 五十七歳御作

      June 25, 1278 (Age:57)

黄河(こうが)は千年に一度()むといへり。聖人は千年に一度出ずるなり。

It is said that the Yellow River becomes clear once in a thousand years, and that a sage likewise appears in the world once in a thousand years.

It is said that the Yellow River becomes clear once in a thousand years. It is said that a sage makes his advent only once in a thousand years.

仏は無量(こう)に一度出世し給ふ。

A Buddha is said to be born only once in innumerable kalpas.

A Buddha appears in the world once in countless kalpas.

彼には()うといへども法華経には値いがたし。

Yet even if one should meet a Buddha, it is far more difficult to encounter the Lotus Sutra.

Even if you encounter the Buddha, it is difficult to encounter the Lotus Sutra.

(たと)法華経に値ひ奉るとも、末代の凡夫法華経の行者には値ひ難し

And even if one should encounter the Lotus Sutra, it is rarer still for an ordinary person of the latter age to meet the votary of the Lotus Sutra.

And even if you encounter the Lotus Sutra, it is still more difficult for common mortals like us, who were born in the Latter Day of the Law, to encounter the votary of the Lotus Sutra.
