上野殿後家尼御返事

Hell Is the Land of Tranquil Light

Reply to the Widow of Ueno


文永二年七月十一日 四十四歳御作

July11, 1265 Age:44)


()(じょう)()と云うも地獄と云うも外には候はず・ただ我等がむね()の間にあり、

Neither the pure land nor hell exists outside oneself; both lie only within one’s own heart.

The pure land or hell does not exist outside one’s mind or body. It exists within one’s mind.

 これをさと()るを仏といふ・これにまよ()ふを凡夫(ぼんぷ)と云う、

Awakened to this, one is called a Buddha; deluded about it, one is called an ordinary person.

One who is awakened to this principle is called a Buddha, whereas one who is not, is a common mortal.

これをさと()るは法華経なり、()ししからば法華経をたも()ちたてまつるものは地獄即寂光(じゃっこう)とさとり候ぞ。

The Lotus Sutra reveals this truth, and one who embraces the Lotus Sutra will realize that hell is itself the Land of Tranquil Light.

To understand this difference is the heart of the Lotus Sutra. Therefore, those who embrace the Lotus Sutra should realize that hell is in fact the land of tranquil light.
