 四条金吾殿御返事(()(きょう)(なん)()御書)

 The Difficulty of Sustaining Faith

 Reply to Shijō Kingo

(そもそも)(べん)阿闍(あじゃ)()が申し候は、貴辺のかた()らせ給ふ様に(たも)つらん者は現世(げんぜ)安穏(あんのん)後生(ごしょう)善処(ぜんしょ)(うけたまわ)つてすでに去年(こぞ)より今日まで、かたの如く信心をいたし申し候処に、さにては無くして大難雨の如く(きた)り候と云云。

This is in regard to the passage “This sutra is hard to uphold.” According to Āchārya Ben, you said to him: “I have been practicing the Lotus Sutra correctly since last year,when you told me that those who embrace this sutra will ‘enjoy peace and security in their present existence and good circumstances in future existences.’ Instead, however, great hardships have showered down on me like rain.”

Ben Ajari reported to me: HeShijō Kingostated that he has been dedicating his life to practicing this faith since last year, and had heard from me that those who embrace the Lotus Sutra willenjoy peace and security in this lifetime and good circumstances in the next.” However, contrary to these words, great hardships have been pouring down on him like rain.

(まこと)にてや候らん又弁公がいつはりにて候やらん。
 
 Is this true, or did he give me a false report?

 Is this what you truly said, or has Ben Ajari made a false statement

 いかさま、よきついでに()(しん)をはらし奉らん。

In either case, I will take advantage of this opportunity to resolve any doubts you may have.

In any case, since this is a good opportunity, let me dispel your doubts

法華経の文に難信(なんしん)難解(なんげ)と説き給ふは是なり。

A passage from the Lotus Sutra reads that it is “the most difficult to believe and the most difficult to understand.”

This is what the Lotus Sutra refers to in the passage,the most difficult to believe and the most difficult to understand.”
