立正安国論四 On securing the Peace of the Land through the Propagation of True Buddhism 4

()かず彼の(ばんき)を修せんよりは此の一凶を禁ぜんには

 Rather than offering up ten thousand prayers for remedy, it would be better simply to outlaw this one evil.
 Therefore, rather than offering a myriad of prayers and rituals, first and foremost it is vital to eliminate the single evil cause of all adversities.

(から)きことを(たで)の葉に習い、臭きことを(かわ)()に忘る.

 Insects that live on smartweed forget how bitter ittastes; those who stay long in privies forget how foul the smell is.
 Those who always eat smartweed become numb to its pungent taste. Those who stay long in an outhouse are not bothered by the offensive odor.

善言を聞いて悪言と思い、謗者(ぼうしゃ)を指して聖人と()い、正師を疑つて悪侶に()す、其の(まよい)誠に深く、其の罪浅からず。

Here you listen to my good words and think them wicked, point to a slanderer of the Law and call him a sage, mistrust a correct teacher and take him for an evil priest. Your confusion is great indeed, and your offense anything but light.
 Likewise [ when one is under the influence of erroneous teachings ], he will take good words as bad, call a slander of the correct Law a sage, and suspect a true master to be an evil priest. The illusion he harbors is extremely profound and the offense he commits is grave.

(そう)(よう)驥尾(きび)()して万里を渡り、

A blue fly, if it clings to the tail of a thoroughbred horse, can travel ten thousand miles,
 Even a blue fly could travel over than ten thousand miles by clinging to the tail of a feet steed,

(へき)()松頭(しょうとう)(かか)りて千尋(せんじん)()ぶ、
 and the green ivy that twines around the tall pine can grow to a thousand feet.
 and green ivy could extend for to one thousand yards by entwining itself around a large pine tree.
 

弟子一仏の子と生れて諸経の王に(つか)

 I was born as the son of the one Buddha, Shakyamuni, and I serve the king of scriptures, the Lotus Sutra.
 I was born a disciple and a child of the Buddha, serving the king of all Buddhist sutras [ the Lotus Sutra ].

何ぞ仏法の衰微(すいび)を見て心情の哀惜(あいせき)(おこ)さざらんや。

 How could I observe the decline of the Buddhist Law and not be filled with emotions of pity and distress?
 How could I suppress my grief when I see Buddhist declining?
