唱法華題目抄(しょうほっけだいもくしょう)

On Reciting the Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra

On Chanting the Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra


        文応元年五月二十八日 三十九歳御作

       May 28, 1260 (Age: 39)


()(はん)(ぎょう)二十二に云く「悪象等に(おい)ては心に恐怖(くふ)する事()かれ、悪知識に於ては怖畏(ふい)の心を生ぜよ、

The twenty-second volume of the Nirvana Sutra states: “Have no fear of mad elephants. What you should fear are evil friends!

The 22nd volume of the Nirvana Sutra states: Fear not rampaging elephants and other beasts, but we warned against and afraid of evil influences.

何を以ての故に、是悪象等は(ただ)()く身を(やぶ)りて心を破ること(あた)わず、悪知識は(ふたつ)(とも)に壊るが故に、

Why? Because a mad elephant can only destroy your body; it cannot destroy your mind. But an evil friend can destroy both body and mind.

Why is this so? This is because evil elephants can only destroy one’s body, but not one’s heart, while negative influences can destroy both.

乃至(ないし)悪象の為に殺されては三(しゅ)に至らず、悪友の為に殺されては必ず三趣に至らん」文。

...Even if you are killed by a mad elephant, you will not fall into the three evil paths. But if you are killed by an evil friend, you are certain to fall into them.”

…Even though a mad elephant may kill you, you will not fall into the three evil paths, whereas if you die to evil influences, you will definitely fall into the three evil paths.
