Gosho 上野殿御返事 Persecution by Swords and Staves 11


 日蓮は(とう)(じょう)の二字ともにあひぬ(あまつさ)へ刀の難は(さき)に申すがごとく東条の松原と(たつの)(くち)となり。一度もあう人なきなり、日蓮は二度あひぬ。

I, Nichiren,have met with persecution by both sword and staff. As I mentioned before, I was attacked with a sword at Matsubara in Tōjō and later at Tatsunokuchi. No one else has met with such persecution [for the sake of the Lotus Sutra] even once, but I have met with it twice.

As I mentioned previously, I experienced persecution by sword at Komatsubara in Tojo and at Tatsunokuchi. No one else has met with such an assault even once, but I, Nichiren, have suffered it twice.

(つえ)の難にはすでに()うばう(輔房)つら()をうたれしかども第五の巻をもつてうつ。

As for being attacked with staves, I have already been struck in the face by Shō-bō with the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra.

As for being assaulted with staves, Sho-bo has already struck me across the face with the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra.

うつ杖も第五の巻、うたるべしと云う経文も五の巻、不思議なる未来記の経文なり。

The fifth scroll was used as a staff to strike me, and it is this very scroll that carries the passage that [votaries of the Lotus Sutra] will be attacked with staves. What a mysterious passage of prediction!

They very stave that struck me was the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra; the fifth scroll that says the Votary of the Lotus Sutra will be attacked with staves. What an extraordinary, prophetic passage!

さればせうばうに日蓮数十人の中にして()たれし時の心中には法華経の故とはをもへども、いまだ凡夫なれば()たて()かりける間、つえ()をも()ばひ、ちか()らあるならば()()()つべきことぞかし。(しか)れどもつえ()は法華経の五の巻にてまします。

Shō-bō hit me before dozens of people, and, though I knew it was for the sake of the Lotus Sutra, being an ordinary person, I felt miserable and ashamed. Had I had the strength, I would have wrested it from him, trampled on and broken it, and thrown it away. However, it was in fact the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra.

When Sho-bo, in front of dozens of people, batted me in the face, I, being a common mortal, was distressed and mortified. Had I the strength, I would have snatched the stave from his hands, thrown it down and trampled it into splinters…..but for the fact that it was the fifth scroll of the Lotus Sutra.
