Gosho 弁殿尼御返事 The Great Battle

弁殿尼御返事

The Great Battle

Letter to Ben-dono ama


   文永十年九月十九日 五十二歳御作

   September 19, 1273

第六天の魔王・十軍のいくさを・をこして・法華経の行者と(しょう)()(かい)の海中にして同居(どうこ)穢土(えど)を・とられじ・うばはんと・あらそう。

The devil king of the sixth heaven has roused the ten kinds of troops and, in the midst of the sea of the sufferings of birth and death, is at war with the votary of the Lotus Sutra to stop him from taking possession of and to wrest away from him this impure land where both ordinary people and sages dwell.

Within the sea of the sufferings of life and death, through his ten kinds of evil force, the Devil King of the Sixth Heaven has been waging war against the votary of the Lotus Sutra, in order to maintain his power in the impure land of enlightened and unenlightened beings and to further spread his control.

日蓮其の身にあひあたりて大兵を・をこして二十余年なり、

It has been twenty or more years now since I found myself in that situation and began the great battle.

I, Nichiren, as the person responding to this, have been fighting back for more than twenty years by leading a large force of my own.

日蓮一度もしりぞく心なし

Not once have I thought of retreat.

Not once have I considered retreat.

しかりと・いえども弟子等・檀那(だんな)等の中に臆病のもの大体(あるい)はをち或は退転の心あり。

Among my disciples and followers, however, those who are cowards have for the most part either given in or retreated at heart.

However, almost all cowards among my disciples and followers have either discarded their faith or have considered regressing in their practice.
