Gosho 報恩抄 Repaying Debts of Gratitude 2


仏法を習い極めんとをもはばいとまあらずば(かな)うべからず

If one hopes to learn and master Buddhism, then one cannot do so without devoting time to the task.

いとまあらんとをもはば父母・師匠・国主等に随いては叶うべからず

And if one wants to have time to spend on theundertaking, one cannot continue to wait on one’s parents, one’s teachers, and one’s sovereign.

是非につけて出離(しゅつり)の道をわきまへざらんほどは父母・師匠等の心に随うべからず

Until one attains the road that leads to emancipation, one should not defer to the wishes and feelings of one’s parents and teachers, no matter how reasonable they maybe.

外典(げてん)に云く聖人は一千年に一たび出で、賢人は五百年に一たび出づ、

The secular classics of China claim that a sage will appear once every thousand years, and a worthy once every five hundred.

黄河(こうが)涇渭(けいい)ながれを・わけて五百年には(なかば)(かわ)()み、千年には共に清むと申すは一定(いちじょう)にて候けり

In the Yellow River where the Ching and Wei rivers flow into it, the flow of the two tributary rivers remains separate. But it is said that, once every five hundred years, one side of the river will flow clear, and once every thousand years, both sides of the river will flow clear.

伝教大師せめて云く「法華経を()むると(いえど)(かえっ)て法華の心を(ころ)す」等云云、

The GreatTeacher Dengyō criticized it, saying, “Though he praises the Lotus Sutra, he destroys its heart.”

此等をもつておもうに法華経をよみ讃歎(さんたん)する人人の中に無間地獄は多く有るなり。

If we consider these examples carefully, we will realize that, among those who read the Lotus Sutra and sing its praises, there are many who are destined for the hell of incessant suffering.

人死して後・色の黒きは地獄の(ごう)と定むる事は仏陀(ぶつだ)の金言ぞかし

We have the Buddha’s own golden word for it that, if a person’s skin turns black after he dies, it is a sign that he has done something that destined him for hell.
