Gosho 阿仏房御書 On the Treasure Tower

 阿仏房御書(宝塔御書) 

 On the Treasure Tower

 Letter to Abutsu-bō

      文永十二年三月十三日 五十四歳御作

         March 13, 1275 (Age54)

所詮(しょせん)三周(さんしゅう)声聞(しょうもん)、法華経に(きたり)()(しん)の宝塔を見ると云う事なり。

In essence, the appearance of the treasure tower indicates that on hearing the Lotus Sutra the three groups of voice-hearers perceived for the first time the treasure tower within their own lives.

It is said that upon hearing the three distinct kinds of sermons in the Lotus Sutra [for the people of the two vehicles], those in the world of learning because able to see the treasure tower within their lives.

(いま)日蓮が弟子檀那(だんな)又又かくのごとし、

Now Nichiren’s disciples and lay supporters are also doing this.

This also holds for Nichiren’s disciples and followers.

末法に入つて法華経を持つ男女(なんにょ)のすがたより(ほか)には宝塔なきなり。

In the LatterDay of the Law, no treasure tower exists other than the figures of the men and women who embrace the Lotus Sutra.

In the Latter Day of the Law, there is no treasure tower other than the men and women who embrace the Lotus Sutra.

()(しか)れば、貴賤(きせん)上下をえらばず南無妙法蓮華経ととな()うるものは、我が身宝塔にして我が身又多宝如来なり、

It follows, therefore, that whether eminent or humble, high or low, those who chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo are themselves the treasure tower, and, likewise, are themselves the Thus Come One Many Treasures.

If this is true, then regardless of one’s rank or class, when one chants Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, one’s life manifests itself as the treasure tower, and at the same time, one is endowed with the virtue of Tahō Buddha.

妙法蓮華経より(ほか)に宝塔なきなり。法華経の題目宝塔なり、宝塔又南無妙法蓮華経なり。

No treasure tower exists other than Myoho-renge-kyo. The daimoku of the Lotus Sutra is the treasure tower, and the treasure tower is Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.

There is no treasure tower other than Myoho-Renge-Kyo. The Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra is the treasure tower; the treasure tower is Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo.
