Gosho 妙密上人御消息 The Blessings of the Lotus Sutra

妙密上人御消息

The Blessings of the Lotus Sutra

Letter to Myōmitsu shōnin


    建治三年(うるう)三月五日 五十五歳御作

    March 5, 1276, an Intercalary Month (Age: 55)


一経の肝心たる題目を我も唱へ人にも(すす)む、

I chant the daimoku, which is the heart and core of the entire sutra, and I urge others to do likewise.

I have been chanting the Daimoku, the essence of the Lotus Sutra, myself, and encouraging others [to do the same].

(あさ)の中の(よもぎ)(すみ)うてる木の自体は正直ならざれども・自然(じねん)()ぐなるが(ごと)し、

Although the mugwort growing in a hemp field or wood marked for cutting with an inked line may not be straight to begin with, they will as a matter of course become so.

The winding mugwort grows straight when it is planted in a hemp field. A crooked tree can be cut into straight lumber by following the sumi ink mark.

経のままに唱うれば・まがれる(こころ)なし

In the same way, one who chants the daimoku as the Lotus Sutra teaches will never have a twisted mind.

Likewise, when you chant the Daimoku exactly as taught in the Lotus Sutra, your heart will never go astray.
