The Good Medicine for All Ills

Replyto Myōshin ama


建治元年八月十六日 五十四歳御作

June 26, 1278 (Age: 57)


このやまひは仏の御はからひか、そのゆへは浄名(じょうみょう)経・涅槃(ねはん)経には(やまい)ある人、仏になるべきよしとかれて候。

Could not this illness of your husband’s be the Buddha’s design, because the Vimalakīrti and Nirvana sutras both teach that sick people will surely attain Buddhahood?

Your illness must be the work of the Buddha, just as described in the Vimalakirti and the Nirvana Sutra. These sutras describe the reason why those who are ill should be able to attain Buddhahood.

病によりて道心はをこり候なり。

Illness gives rise to the resolve to attain the way.

Illness can motivate one to pursue the path to supreme enlightenment.
