Gosho 撰時抄 The Selection of the Time


彼の天台の座主(ざす)よりも南無妙法蓮華経と唱うる癩人(らいにん)とはなるべし、

Rather than be the chief priest of the Tendai school, it is better to be a leper who chants Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!

(りょう)の武帝の(ねがい)に云く「(むし)(だい)()(だっ)()となて無間地獄には沈むとも、欝頭(うず)(らん)(ほつ)とはならじ」と云云。

As Emperor Wu of the Liang dynasty said in his vow, “ Iwould rather be Devadatta and sink into the hell of incessant suffering than be the non-Buddhist sage Udraka Rāmaputra.”

日蓮は(えん)()第一の法華経の行者なり、

I, Nichiren,am the foremost votary of the Lotus Sutra in the entire land of Jambudvīpa.


此れをそしり此れをあだむ人を
結構(けっこう)せん人は閻浮第一の大難にあうべし、


Therefore, people who ally themselves with those who slander me or treat me with malice deserve to meet with the greatest difficulties in Jambudvīpa,


これは日本国を
ふり()ゆる()がす正嘉(しょうか)の大地震、一天を罰する文永の大彗星(だいすいせい)等なり、


such as the immense earthquake that rocked Japan in the Shōka era, or the huge comet that appeared as a punishment upon the entire land in the Bun’ei era.


此等をみよ、仏滅後の後、仏法を行ずる者に
あだ()をなすといへども今のごとくの大難は一度もなきなり、


Just look at these happenings! Though in the centuries since the Buddha’s passing there have been other practitioners of Buddhism who were treated with malice, great disasters such as these have never been known before.


南無妙法蓮華経と一切衆生にすすめたる人一人もなし、


That is because there has never before been anyone who taught the people at large to chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!


此の徳はたれか一天に眼を合せ四海に肩をならぶべきや。


I With respect to this virtue, is there anyone in the whole world who dares to face me and say he is my equal, anyone within the four seas who dares to claim he can stand side by side with me?
