 Priestly Robes

 On the Robes

  弘安三年 五十九歳御作

  1280 Age: 59

天台大師云く「他経は(ただ)男に記して女に記せず」等云云、

The Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai said, “The other sutras predict Buddhahood only for men, but not for women.”

The Great Teacher Tiantai stated,The other sutras affirm the attainment of enlightenment for men and not for women.

法華経にあらざれば女人成仏は許されざるか、

If it were not for the Lotus Sutra, women could never attain Buddhahood.

Is the Lotus Sutra the only sutra that allows for the attainment of enlightenment of all women?

具足(ぐそく)千万光相(こうそう)(にょらい)と申すは摩訶(まか)(だい)比丘尼(びくに)のことなり。

The Thus Come One Endowed with a Thousand Ten Thousand Glowing Marks refers to the nun Yashodharā.

Tathagata with Hundreds of Thousands of Glistening Banners [who is referred to in the Lotus Sutra,] is the nun Mahaprajapati.

()()もつて()()かり候に女人の成仏は法華経により候べきか

Considering these things, one realizes that certainly it is the Lotus Sutra that makes it possible for women to attain Buddhahood.

This demonstrates that the attainment of enlightenment by women is only possible through the Lotus Sutra.
