Gosho 三沢抄 Letter to Misawa

三沢抄 

Letter to Misawa


     建治四年二月二十三日 五十七歳御作

      February 23,1278 Age: 57


たとひ明師(ならび)(じっ)(きょう)()い奉りて正法を()たる人なれども(しょう)()をいで仏にならむとする時には・かならず影の身にそうがごとく・雨に雲のあるがごとく・三障四魔と申して(ななつ)の大事出現す。

Even though one may encounter a wise teacher and the true sutra and thereby embrace the correct teaching, when one resolves to break free from the sufferings of birth and death and attain Buddhahood, one will inevitably encounter seven grave matters known as the three obstacles and four devils, just as surely as a shadow follows the body and clouds accompany rain.

When even an outstanding master or someone who encountered true Mahayana and mastered the true Law is about to be liberated from the sufferings of life and death and become a Buddha, he will face the seven challenges called the three obstacles and four devils. This happens just as a shadow invariably follows its body and rain always accompanies the clouds.

(たと)ひ・からくして(むつ)は・すぐれども第七にやぶられぬれば仏になる事かたし、

Even if you should manage to overcome the first six, if you are defeated by the seventh, you will not be able to become a Buddha.

Even if they barely overcome six of the seven hindrances, if they succumb to the seventh, it will be impossible for them to attain Buddhahood.

()の六は(しばら)()く、

Let us leave the first six for now.

I will put aside the discussion of what constitutes the first six challenges.

第七の大難は天子(てんじ)()と申す物なり、

The seventh is caused by the devil king of the sixth heaven.

The seventh hindrance is the Devil King of the Sixth Heaven.
