3 Nichiren Declares the Establishment in True Buddhism in the Hometown on Readiness.(3)

                      Japanese version


This case was reported quickly to Kagenobu of the lord of a manor who governed Tōjō Country.

Kagenobu lay down, but got up, with a start.

"What? Nembutsu is the hell of incessant suffering?"

Kagenobu is a strong believer of Nembutsu. Nembutsu is believed in enthusiastically. To criticize was tabooed.

Kagenobu showed an expression of the anger in a beginning, but burst into laughter before long.

“I am sure of my game. We arrest the Buddhist priest called Nichiren. It is not what it can consent tacitly to as a lord of a manor that there is such a bad person in Seichōji temple. We arrest the guy and appeal to the Shogunate for the misbehavior of the temple. The temple will become a follower of we Tōjō if we do so it. Good, here we go!”

Kagenobu takes the sword and leaves. Attendants followed it in a hurry.

Kagenobu and his subordinates let horse drive fast. They ran by the mountain path and climbed the approach to the temple.

Nichiren and Jōkenbō, Gijōbō were in the middle of the conversation in the temple. It is time when Nichiren explained the teaching of the Lotus Sutra to two senior fellow disciples.

A young monk burst into the room.

“Serious! The lord of a manor flocked. When Nembutsu is why is the worst hell, they are yelling.”

Jōkenbō raised one knee.

"The game is up. Did it leak? Nichiren, leave early!”

Nichiren straightened himself.

"I am due to hand this time. I excuse."

Gijōbō stopped it.

“Don't do that. This temple is an inveterate foe for a fight for land with Tojo. We cannot roll you up here.”

The inside of the temple rustled at the same time as they said so. Samurais invaded it.

A voice to shout, and to scatter, a ferocious voice sounded.

"Where is the person called Nichiren? Where is Nichiren?”

Kagenobu Tōjō opened the door of the room violently.

There were only two people of Jōkenbō and Gijōbō there.

Kagenobu pointed a whip to the tip of nose of Jōkenbō.

"Where is the person called Nichiren?"

“He is no there. He already left.”

Gijōbō was resolute and said.

"Lord Kagenobu, it is imprudent to enter the temple with your wearing shoes despite a lord of a manor. Ōama is the blood relationship of Kamakura. This thing is not good for Lord kagenobu either."

Kagenobu was settled down a little

"There was information. There seems to be a person saying that the prayer of Nembutsu is hell. It is the duty of the lord of a manor to supervise such a person. I intend to catch the people taking part in the person.”

The voice that "the guy was there!" from the outside sounded.

Nichiren went down the mountain behind for going at a trot.

The samurai who pulled a sword caught up with Nichiren.

Nichiren turns around.

Samurais surrounded Nichiren.

This was surprising. A misfortune befell him at the same time to make teaching. Nichiren felt as if he had a glimpse of coming life.

However, the group of the farmer jumped out of the forest then and protected Nichiren and confronted samurai. They were people of the supporters of a Buddhist temple of Seichōji. Most are local farmers. They heard urgency and gathered.

Farmers glare at samurais with a stick in a hand.

A samurai was enraged.

" You are outrageous farmers! Do you take sides with a bad Buddhist priest?”

Farmers call out to each other and begin to hit a stick and push away samurais.

The samurai does not lose, too.

After the hostility of both continued, Kagenobu appeared. He seemed to consider that a situation was disadvantageous. He withdrew samurais. And he threatened farmers on a return.

"This is all right today. But I remember it. There are people against a lord of a manor. I'll get even with you sometime."

Kagenobu left, farmers gave sigh of relief.


Nichiren, Jōkenbō, three people of Gijōbō go down the thin mountain path. All three held their breath. A pursuer may come.

Miura Peninsula was seen on the opposite bank far. Furthermore, Mount Fuji is seen in the distance.

Gijōbō handed baggage to Nichiren.

"What would you do from now on? Do you come back to Kyōto?”

Nichiren waved a neck.

"I will go to Kamakura."

"Why. You should go to Kyōto if you succeed in life.”

Nichiren said flatly.

"The center of Japan is Kamakura now. I want to try oneself in the ground.”

Nichiren greeted and went down the mountain. His back figure becomes small.

Jōkenbō said like a soliloquy.

"Is he all right?"

Gijōbō brightened his eyes.

"Sure, he was the man who surpassed in this Seichōji temple. We do not worry."

These two people were senior fellow disciples, but assumed Nichiren a teacher after this. And they support activity of Nichiren for a life.
