 例せば風に随つて波の大小あり、

 The size of the waves depends upon the wind that raises them,

(たきぎ)によつて火の高下あり

 the height of the flames depends upon how much fire woodies piled on,

 池に随つて(はちす)の大小あり

 the size of the lotuses depends upon the pond in which they grow,

 雨の大小は竜による、

 and the volume of rain depends upon the dragons that make it fall.

 根ふかければ枝しげし(みなもと)遠ければ流ながしと・いうこれなり、

 The deeper the roots, the more prolific the branches. The farther the source, the longer the stream.

 周の()の七百年は文王の(れい)(こう)による、

The Chou dynasty lasted for seven hundred years because of the propriety and filial devotion of its founder, King Wen.

 秦の世ほどもなし()(こう)()(どう)によるなり、

 The Ch’in dynasty (221–206 b.c.e.), on the other hand, lasted hardly any time at all, because of the perverse ways of its founder, the First Emperor of the Ch’in.


 日蓮が慈悲(じひ)(こう)(だい)ならば南無妙法蓮華経は万年の(ほか)・未来までもなが(流布)るべし、

There is the beneficial power to open the blind eyes of all the people of the country in Japan,


無間(むけん)地獄の道をふさぎぬ、 

 and it blocks off the road that leads to the hell of incessant suffering.

 and it blocks the path to the hell of incessant suffering.

 and it blocks the path to the hell of incessant suffering.


 此の功徳は伝教・天台にも超へ竜樹(りゅうじゅ)迦葉(かしょう)にもすぐれたり、
