Gosho 撰時抄 The Selection of the Time


衆流(しゅうる)あつまりて大海となる、微塵(みじん)つもりて須弥山(しゅみせん)となれり、

 Little streams come together to form the great ocean, and tiny particles of dust accumulate to form Mount Sumeru.

日蓮が法華経を信じ始めしは日本国には一(たい)・一微塵のごとし、

 When I, Nichiren, first took faith in the Lotus Sutra, I was like a single drop of water or a single particle of dust in all the country of Japan.


法華経を二人・三人・十人・百千万億人・唱え伝うるほどならば、妙覚の須弥山ともなり
大涅槃(だいねはん)の大海ともなるべし、


 But later, when two people, three people, ten people, and eventually a hundred, a thousand, ten thousand, and a million people come to recite the Lotus Sutra [Gohonzon] and transmit it to others, then they will form a Mount Sumeru of perfect enlightenment, an ocean of great nirvana.


仏になる道は此れよりほかに又もとむる事なかれ。


 Seek no other path by which to attain Buddhahood!


されば我が弟子等心みに法華経のごとく身命もおしまず修行して此の(たび)仏法を心みよ。


 Therefore, I say to you, my disciples, try practicing as the Lotus Sutra teaches, exerting yourselves without begrudging your lives! Test the truth of Buddhism now!

霊山(りょうぜん)浄土(じょうど)の教主釈尊・(ほう)(じょう)世界の多宝仏・十方分身の諸仏・地涌(じゆ)千界(せんがい)の菩薩等・梵釈・日月・四天等・(みょう)()(けん)に助け給はずば一時一日も安穏なるべしや。

 If Shakyamuni Buddha, the lord of teachings, of the pure land of Eagle Peak, Many Treasures Buddha of the World of Treasure Purity, the Buddhas of the ten directions who are Shakyamuni’s emanations, the bodhisattvas as numerous as the dust particles of a thousand worlds who sprang up out of the earth, Brahmā and Shakra, the gods of the sun and moon, and the four heavenly kings do not, conspicuously or inconspicuously, give me their protection and lend me aid, then they will never know a single day or a single hour of peace and safety !
