Gosho 春之祝御書 In Celebration of Spring

春之祝御書

New Year’s Greeting

In Celebration of Spring


文永十二年一月 五十四歳御作

January1275 (Age:54)

さては故なん()でう()どの(殿)ひさ()しき事には候はざりしかども・よろず事にふれてなつかしき心ありしかば・()ろかならずをもひしに・

Though my acquaintance with the deceased Nanjō was not of long duration, he became dear to me in the course of the various situations that brought us together.

Although my relationship with the late Lord Nanjō was brief, each time we met, I felt closer to him, and he became very important to me.

(寿)ひ盛んなりしには()なかりし事わか()かな()しかりしかば・わざとかま()くら()よりうちくだり御はか()をば見候ひぬ。

And so I held him in high esteem, but he passed away while he was yet in the prime of life. Grieved at having been parted from him, I made the trip all the way down from Kamakura and paid a visit to his grave.

Despite his young age, he passed away. Overcome with grief, I traveled from Kamakura [to Ueno] solely to visit his grave.

それよりのちはする(駿)()びん(便)にはと・をも()ひしに・このたびくだ()しには人に()のびてこれ()()たりしかば・にし(西)やま()の入道殿にもしられ候はざりし上は力をよばず・()をりて候ひしが心にかかりて候。

Since then, I had thought that I would stop by again on my next trip to Suruga, but this time, because I made my way here without anyone knowing it, I avoided informing even the lay priest of Nishiyama, and it has been troubling me that I was powerless to do more than simply pass by.

After that, I tried to make another visit there when I had the opportunity to go to Suruga Province for other purpose. But because I came [to Minobu] without informing anyone, not even Nishiyama nyūdō, I regrettably could not pay a visit to his grave.

その心を()げんがために・此の御房は正月の内につか()わして御はか()にて自我偈一巻()ませんとをも()ひてまい()らせ候。

In order to fulfill my wish, I have sent my disciple with the intention that he visit you during the first month and recite the verse portion of the “Life Span” chapter in one scroll at the grave.

In order to achieve my long-desired wish, I am sending the priest (Nikko Shonin), now in the month of January, to offer a recitation of the Jigage section of the Lotus Sutra in front of his grave.
