Gosho 撰時抄 The Selection of the Time


(きん)(めい)より当帝にいたるまで七百余年いまだきかずいまだ見ず、南無妙法蓮華経と唱えよと他人をすすめ、我と唱えたる智人なし、

 In all the seven hundred and more years from the time of Emperor Kimmei to the present emperor , such a thing has never been seen or heard of, namely, a wise man who urges others to chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and who chants it himself.

 For seven hundred-odd years, from the time of Emperor Kimmei up to the present reigning emperor, who have never seen or heard of anybody who is wise enough to chant Nam-Myoho-Renge-kyo and urge others to do the same.

 日出でぬれば星かくる、賢王来れば愚王ほろぶ、

 When the sun rises, the stars go into hiding. When a worthy king appears, foolish kings perish.

 When the sun rises, the stars disappear. When a wise king emerges, a foolish one falls.

 実経流布せば権経のとどまり智人・南無妙法蓮華経と唱えば愚人の此れに随はんこと、影と身と声と響とのごとくならん、

 When the true sutra is spread widely, the provisional sutras will cease to circulate, and when a man of wisdom chants Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, those ignorant of it will follow after him as shadows follow a form and echoes follow a sound.

 When the true teaching spreads, the provisional teachings die out. If a man of wisdom chants Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, even a fool follows him. This is like a shadow accompanying the body or an echo following the voice.

 日蓮は日本第一の法華経の行者なる事あえて疑ひなし、

 There can be no room to doubt that I, Nichiren, am the foremost votary of the Lotus Sutra in all of Japan.

 There is not the slightest doubt that I, Nichiren, am the first and foremost votary of the Lotus Sutra in all of Japan.

 これをもつてすいせよ、漢土月支(がっし)にも一閻浮提の内にも肩をならぶる者は有るべからず。

 Indeed, from this we may assume that, even in China and India and throughout Jambudvīpa, there is no one who can stand side by side with me.

 Based on what I say in this letter, you should realize that in China, India, and throughout the entire world, there is no one equal to Nichiren.
