建長寺道隆への御状

Letter to Dōryū of Kenchō-ji


     文永五年十月十一日 四十七歳御作

     October 11, 1268 (Age: 47)


(それ)仏閣(ぶつかく)(のき)(なら)べ、法門(いえ)ごとに(いた)る。

Now the Buddhist halls stand side by side, the Buddhist teachings filling them to the roof;

仏法の繁栄は身毒(けんどく)尸那(しな)にも(ちょう)()し、僧宝の行儀(ぎょうぎ)は六通の羅漢(らかん)の如し。

Buddhism flourishes in a fashion surpassing anything known in India or China; and the rites and ceremonies of the sacred priesthood resemble those of arhats who possess the six transcendental powers.

(しか)りと(いえど)も一代諸経に(おい)(いま)勝劣(しょうれつ)(せん)(じん)を知らず、(さな)禽獣(きんじゅう)に同じ、

 In spite of this fact, however, it has yet to be decided which among the various sutras preached in the Buddha’s lifetime are superior and which inferior, which are profound and which shallow, and in this sense we are hardly different from the birds or beasts.

(たちま)(さん)(とく)の釈迦如来を(なげう)つて他方の仏菩薩を信ず、

People make haste to cast aside the Thus Come One Shakyamuni with his three virtues of sovereign, teacher, and parent, and instead put their faith in some Buddha or bodhisattva in another realm.

()(あに)逆路(ぎゃくろ)伽耶陀(がやだ)の者に(あら)ずや。

Are they not like the Anti-Lokāyata believers of ancient India?

念仏は無間(むけん)地獄の(ごう)、禅宗は天魔の所為(しょい)、真言は亡国の悪法、律宗は国賊の妄説(もうせつ)と云云。

Belief in the Nembutsu leads to the hell of incessant suffering; the Zen school is the work of the heavenly devil; True Word is an evil doctrine that will ruin the nation; and the Precepts school is a false creed that is traitorous to the nation.
