                              Japanese version


Parent and child of Tokiyori Hōjō made Zen meditation in Kenchō-ji Temple of Kamakura.

Samurais of the defense gathered for the rotation of the temple. It is heavily guarded.

In thefacing of parent and child, there is Dōryu of the Zen priest who wore a black robe.

Dōuryu was calledname Rankei, as virtuous priest invited from Sung. He came from Western Shu (present-day Shichuan Province, China) during the Southern Sung Dynasty. He made a voyage to Japan with a disciple at the age of 33 years old and he entered capital Kyōto in the next year and entered the Invited Place of Senyuji Temple. Furthermore, he visited Kamakura and was in Juhukuji Temple and Jorakuji Temple, but he was invited and was nominated for the founder and received faith when Tokiyori Hōjō erected Kenchō-ji Temple.

Tokiyori asalready far from the regent's post, but he is a direct descendant of Hōjō continuing from Sanetoki and Yasutoki. The power overwhelmed others. He puts it under the control of it even in the Imperial Court. It was the emperor in this Japan, and he was a dictator substantially.

A Zen priest having a stick stands behind parent and child.

At first Tokisuke of the eldest son was hit his shoulder. He glares at a Buddhist priest unintentionally.

Tokimune was hit next. The reaction of Tokimune is different from one of the older brother. He had look oops, but closed his eyes calmly again.

Dōryu blooms.

“Because you, two are young, a heart changes."

While FatherTokimune closes its eyes, he talks.

“Hum. Is it possible for the chief bonze to read the heart of two children?”

Dōryu is proud-looking.

"Sir Tokisuke bares anti-rebellious spirit to Sir Tokimune. He has a feeling not to be defeated by younger brother vividly.”

"Hum, how about a younger brother.?"

"It will be the future of the father."

"Is it mine?"

"Who becomes a leader of Kamakura after Sir. Tokiyori? Tokisuke of the older brother is dominant with the number of ages, and I am superior with the ability."

Violent-tempered Tokisuke butts in.

"Priest Dōryu, you may say too much!"

Father stopped an older brother.

"Wait, and wait. The guess of the chief bonze is mixed in the supposition. It is teaching of the Zen Buddhism not to disturb a heart in such a thing."

A smile played on Doryu’s lips.

While Tokiyori closed his eyes, he heard it.

"Then the chief bonze, my heart is readable how."

Dōryu was lost in thought.

"Is it recent natural disaster and famine, is not it?"

"Do you see it like that?"

"The Kamakura Shogunate is thought to be secure now. Accordingly, as for Lord Tokiyori, it should be anxious about improvement of domestic administration from now on. However, is it not sadness when even Lord Tokiyori cannot stand starvation, an epidemic, extraordinary phenomena in heaven?"

"On the contrary."

Dōryu became stiff.

"I think about you, the chief bonze. You are the noble Buddhist priest who came expressly from China. Our Japan thought that the trade with China was important and maintained the port of Kamakura. However, it is possible because politics of China is secure as for it. China is threatened by the northern savage tribe."

Sweat broke out on Dōryu’s forehead.

“Did you know?”

“The reason that built this temple is because you are the Chinese superior well-informed person. I want to hear various information. I think that it is not to become the loss if you feel to spread Zen Buddhism in this Japan.”

Dōryu looked down.

"It does not become very as good as expected. In Japan, Nembutsu sect of Buddhism occupies most now. And include we Zen Buddhism in Kamakura, and there is the priest attacking every denomination now."

"Hum, it is mysterious indeed."

"It is a priest called Nichiren probably."

Tokiyori laughed.

"There is uneasiness in me for diplomacy. There is worry for propagation for a chief bonze.”
