今度(このたび)法華経の行者として流罪(るざい)・死罪に及ぶ。流罪は伊東、死罪はたつ()くち()、相州のたつのくちこそ日蓮が(いのち)を捨てたる処なれ

In this life, however, as the votary of the Lotus Sutra, I was exiled and put to death—exiled to Ito and beheaded at Tatsunokuchi. Tatsunokuchi in Sagami Province is the place where Nichiren gave his life.

In this lifetime, as the votary of the Lotus Sutra, I was sentenced to exile and death. I was banished to Ito and nearly beheaded at Tatsunokuchi. Tatsunokuchi in Sagami Province is exactly the place where Nichiren lost his life [as a common mortal].

仏土におと()るべしや。其の故はすでに法華経の故なるがゆへなり。

Because he died there for the Lotus Sutra, how could it be anything less than the Buddha land?

Therefore, it is no less significant than the Buddha Land. The reason for this [because I gave my life] for the Lotus Sutra. 

経に云く「十方(じっぽう)仏土中(ゆい)()一乗法」と。此の意なるべきか。

The sutra reads, “In the Buddha lands of the ten directions there is only the Law of the one vehicle.” Does this not bear out my assertion?

The sutra states,In the Buddha lands of the ten directions there is only the Law of the one vehicle. This means [ that the Law of the one vehicle is the Law to which one must devote one’s life].
