Gosho 御義口伝下 Orally Transmitted teachings on the Lotus Sutra Part 2

此の品の時、最上第一の相伝あり、

In this chapter Shakyamuni Buddha revealed the foremost point he wished to convey to us.

釈尊八箇年の法華経を八字に留めて末代の衆生に譲り給うなり

The Buddha preached the Lotus Sutra [Gohonzon] over a period of eight years, and eight characters sum up the message that he has left behind for living beings in this later age, the Latter Day of the Law.

八字とは「(まさ)()って遠く(むか)ふべきこと、当に仏を敬うが如くすべし」の文なり、

It is in the passage that reads, “Therefore, Universal Worthy, if you see a person who accepts and upholds this sutra, you should rise and greet him from afar,showing him the same respect you would a Buddha” , particularly the eight characters that make up the end of the passage, “you should rise and greet him,” etc.

此の文までにて経は終るなり、

With this passage the words of Shakyamuni Buddha in the sutra come to an end, thus in effect ending the sutra.


当の字は未来なり、

The word “should” shows that these words refer to the future.

当起(とうき)遠迎(おんごう)とは必ず仏の如くに法華経の行者を敬う可しと云う経文なり、

The words “should rise and greet him from afar” indicate that the sutra passage is saying that one should without fail show the practitioners of the Lotus Sutra the kind of respect one would show to a Buddha.

法師品には於此経巻敬視如仏(おしきょうかんけいしにょぶつ)と云えり

Similarly,“The Teacher of the Law” chapter says, “Again if there are persons who embrace,read, recite, expound, and copy the Lotus Sutra [Gohonzon]. . .and look upon this sutra with the same reverence as they would the Buddha . . .”
