Gosho 南条兵衛七郎殿御書 The Votary of the Lotus Sutra

南条(ひょう)()七郎殿御書

The Votary of the Lotus Sutra

          文永元年十二月十三日 四十三歳御作

               December 13, 1264Age: 43

いかなる大善をつく()、法華経を千万部読み書写し、一念三千の観道を得たる人なりとも、法華経のか()をだにも・()めざれば得道ありがたし。

However great the good causes one may make, or even if one reads and copies the entirety of the Lotus Sutra a thousand or ten thousand times, or attains the way of perceiving three thousand realms in a single moment of life, if one fails to denounce the enemies of the Lotus Sutra, it will be impossible to attain the way.

No matter what great merit one gains by performing good deeds; even if one transcribes the Lotus Sutra ten million times, and achieves the observation of the mind based on the principle of ichinen sanzen (three thousand realms in a single life-moment), should he fail to denounce the enemies of the Lotus Sutra, he will not be able to attain enlightenment.

たと()へば朝につか()ふる人の、十年・二十年の奉公あれども・君の敵を()りながら(そう)もせず、私にもあだ()まずば奉公皆()せて、(かえ)つてとが()に行はれんが如し。

To illustrate, it is like the case of someone in the service of the imperial court. Even though he may have served for a decade or two, if he knows someone to be an enemy of the emperor but neither reports him to the throne nor shows personal animosity toward him, all the merit of his past services will be thereby negated, and he will instead be charged with an offense.

For example, one may loyally serve the imperial court for ten to twenty years, but if he recognizes an enemy of the emperor and neither reports it nor personally feels enmity, all the services he has thus for offered will come to naught. Rather, he will be punished.

当世の人人は謗法(ほうぼう)の者と()ろしめすべし。

 You must understand that the people of this age are slanderers of the Law.

You must realize that all the people in this age are slanderers of the Law.
