Gosho 十法界明因果抄 On Discerning Cause and Effect in the Ten Worlds

十法界明因果抄(じっぽうかいみょういんがしょう)

Explaining the Causation of the Ten Worlds

On Discerning Cause and Effect in the Ten Worlds


   文永元年四月二十一日 三十九歳御作

               April 21, 1260 (Age: 39)

法華経に云く「()し人信ぜずして()の経を()(ぼう)せば常に地獄に処すること(おん)(かん)に遊ぶが如く、余の悪道に在ること(おの)舎宅(しゃたく)の如し」文、

The Lotus Sutra states: “If a person fails to have faith but instead slanders this sutra, . . . he will constantly dwell in hell, strolling in it as though it were a garden, and the other evil paths of existence he will look on as his own home.”

The Lotus Sutra teaches: If one does not believe in this sutra and commits slander…this person continually will dwell in the world of hell, feeling as if he were playing in a palace. Even though one is on an evil path, he will feel as if he were at home.

慳貪(けんどん)偸盗(ちゅうとう)等の罪に()つて餓鬼(がき)(どう)()することは世人知り(やす)し、

Ordinary people in the world can easily understand why those who commit crimes motivated by stinginess or greed or who rob and steal should fall into the world of hungry spirits.

Due to the offense of greed and theft, one will fall into the world of hunger. Even ordinary people can easily understand this.

慳貪等無き諸の善人も謗法(ほうぼう)に依り(また)謗法の人に親近(しんごん)()(ねん)に其の義を信ずるに依つて餓鬼道に堕することは智者に(あら)ざれば之を知らず、

But it takes someone of wisdom to understand that, though one may be a good person, free of stinginess, greed, or such faults, if he slanders the Law, or merely associates closely with those who slander the Law and thoughtlessly believes their doctrines, he will fall into the world of hungry spirits.

Even good people, who are not greedy and do not commit other sins, will fall into the world of hunger if they commit slanders, or if they unknowingly come to believe in slanderous teachings by closely associating with slanderers. Only a man of wisdom understands this.

()く能く恐る可きか。

The greatest caution is needed in these matters!

We certainly must be fearful.
