()法蔵(ほうぞう)の第十三天台大師の高祖・竜樹(りゅうじゅ)()(さつ)・妙法の妙の一字を釈して、(たと)えば大薬師の能く毒を以て薬と為すが如し等云云。

I would like simply to quote the words of Bodhisattva Nāgārjuna, the thirteenth of the Buddha’s successors and founder of the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai’s line, who in explaining the word myō, or “wonderful,” in the term myōhō says it is “like a great physician who can change poison into medicine.”

Bodhisattva Nagarjuna was the thirteenth of Shakyamuni Buddha’s successors, who was later revered as a master by the Great Teacher Tiantai. Nagarjuna interpreted the single character Myoof Myoho as followers: It is likened to an excellent physician skillfully turning poisons into medicine.

毒と云うは何物ぞ、我等が煩悩(ぼんのう)(ごう)()の三道なり。

What is the poison? It is the three paths of earthly desires, karma, and suffering that are our lot.
