Gosho 弟子檀那中への御状 Letter to the Disciples and Believers of Nichiren

弟子檀那中への御状

Letter to My Disciples and Lay Supporters

Letter to the Disciples and Believers of Nichiren


   文永五年十月十一日 四十七歳御作

   October11, 1268 Age: 47)


(もう)()国の簡牒(かんちょう)到来に()いて十一通の書状を以て方方へ申せしめ候、

With regard to the official letter that has arrived from the great Mongol Empire, I have written eleven letters and sent them to various persons.

Concerning the arrival of an official letter from the great country of Mongolia, I have sent letters to eleven individuals.

(さだ)めて日蓮が弟子檀那(だんな)流罪(るざい)・死罪一定(いちじょう)ならん、

Undoubtedly this will result in Nichiren’s disciples and lay supporters being condemned to exile or execution.

It is certain that Nichiren’s disciples and lay believers will not escape exile or the death penalty.

少しも之を驚くこと(なか)

You should not be surprised when this happens.

You should not be surprised in the least by this.

方方への強言(ごうげん)申すに及ばず是(しかし)ながら()強毒(ごうどく)()の故なり、

I have used very strong language in my letters, but this is because it is necessary to “force others to listen, though it angers them.”

Needless to say, this will be the result of the strong remonstrations I carried out with many people. It is, however, the manifestation of “bringing forth the poison [-drum relationship by forcefully teaching the Law to others].”

日蓮庶幾(しょき)せしむる所に候、

That is the sort of response I am hoping for.

This is what I, Nichiren, fervently have wished for.
