Gosho 兄弟抄三 Letter to Brothers 3


 かかる浅き事だにも成ぜんとすれば四魔(きそい)て成じかたし、

 Therefore, how could it measure up to the Lotus Sutra? The four devils fiercely oppose the mastery of even such a shallow art as the occult.

(いか)に況や法華経の極理・南無妙法蓮華経の七字を始めて(たも)たん日本国の弘通(ぐつう)(はじめ)ならん人の弟子檀那とならん人人の大難の来らん事をば(ことば)をもつて尽し難し心をもつて・()()かるべしや。

 How much greater, then, are the tribulations that will confront the disciples and lay supporters of the person who is the first to embrace and the first to propagate in Japan the seven characters of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, the ultimate principle of the Lotus Sutra. It is impossible to imagine, let alone describe in words.

()の上摩訶止(まかし)(かん)の第五の巻の一念三千は今一重立ち入たる法門ぞかし、

 The doctrine of three thousand realms in a single moment of life revealed in the fifth volume of Great Concentration and Insight is especially profound.

 此の法門を申すには必ず魔出来(しゅったい)すべし、

 If you propagate it, devils will arise without fail.

 魔競はずは正法と知るべからず、

 If they did not, there would be no way of knowing that this is the correct teaching.

 第五の巻に云く「(ぎょう)()既に勤めぬれば三障四魔紛然として競い起る

 One passage from the same volume reads: “As practice progresses and understanding grows,the three obstacles and four devils emerge in confusing form, vying with one another to interfere . . .

乃至(ないし)随う可らず(おそ)る可らず、

 One should be neither influenced nor frightened by them.

 之に随えば(まさ)に人をして悪道に向わしむ、

If one fall sunder their influence, one will be led into the paths of evil.

 之を(おそ)れば正法を修することを(さまた)ぐ」等云云、

 If one is frightened by them, one will be prevented from practicing the correct teaching.”

 此の釈は日蓮が身に当るのみならず門家の明鏡なり、

 This statement not only applies to me, but also is a guide for my followers.

(つつし)んで習い伝えて未来の()(りょう)とせよ。

 Reverently make this teaching your own, and transmit it as an axiom of faith for future generations.
