寂日房御書

Letter to Jakunichi-bō

   弘安二年六月二十五日 五十七歳御作

     September 16, 1279Age: 58

日蓮は日本第一の法華経の行者なり

Nichiren is the supreme votary of the Lotus Sutra in Japan.

I, Nichiren, am the first and foremost votary of the Lotus Sutra in all of Japan.

すでに(かん)()(ほん)の二十行の()の文は日本国の中には日蓮一人よめり。

In this land only he has lived the twenty-line verse of the “Encouraging Devotion” chapter.

In this land, Nichiren alone has realized the meaning of the twenty-line verse of the Encouraging Devotion chapter of the Lotus Sutra.

 八十万億那由佗(なゆた)の菩薩は口には(のべ)たれども修行したる人一人もなし

The eight hundred thousand million nayutas of bodhisattvas pledged with this verse to propagate the Lotus Sutra, but not one of them fulfilled the pledge.

Though as many as eighty myriads of millions of nayutas of bodhisattvas swore their oath [in the twenty-line verse], there was no one else who actually carried it out.
