(しゅ)(じゅく)(だつ)の法門・法華経の肝心(かんじん)なり、

The doctrine of the sowing of the seed and its maturing and harvesting is the very heart and core of the Lotus Sutra.

The doctrine of sowing, maturing, and harvesting is the heart and core of the Lotus Sutra.

三世十方の仏は必ず妙法蓮華経の五字を(たね)として仏になり給へり、

All the Buddhas of the three existences and the ten directions have invariably attained Buddhahood through the seeds represented by the five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo.

It is only through the five characters of Myoho-Renge-Kyo, the seed of enlightenment, that all the Buddhas of the three existences and the ten directions have attained Buddhahood.

南無(なむ)阿弥陀(あみだ)(ぶつ)は仏種にはあらず真言五戒等も種ならず

The words Namu Amida Butsu are not the seeds of Buddhahood, nor can the mantras or the five precepts act as such seeds.

Believing in Amida Buddha is not the seed for Buddhahood. Nor can the practice of the Shingon sect, the practice of observing the five precepts, or other heretical teachings be the seed enlightenment.
