Gosho 太田左衛門尉御返事 On the Importance of the “Expedient means” and “Life Span” Chapters

在世(ざいせ)の二乗が(これ)()の諸苦を失はんとて空理に沈み、()(しん)(めっ)()して菩薩の勤行(ごんぎょう)精進(しょうじん)(こころざし)を忘れ、空理を証得(しょうとく)せん事を(しん)(ごく)と思うなり。

When the Buddha was in the world, persons of the two vehicles, hoping to rid themselves of these sufferings, sought to immerse themselves in the truth of non-substantiality, making ashes of their bodies and wiping out their consciousnesses; they abandoned any hope of carrying out the striving and assiduousness that characterize the bodhisattva, and believed instead that the highest truth was to be found in the realization of the principle of non-substantiality.

In order to eradicate these sufferings, those of the two vehicles during Shakyamuni Buddha’s lifetime indulged in meditating on emptiness. In their attempt to extinguish their body and mind, they forget their aspiration to devote themselves to the bodhisattva practice. They believed that the enlightenment of emptiness was the ultimate truth.

仏、(ほう)(どう)の時、此等の心地(しんち)(だんか)し給いしなり。

In the period when the Buddha was preaching the correct and equal sutras, he chastised those who adopted this ideal.

Shakyamuni Buddha admonished them, refuting this viewpoint during the expansion period of his preaching.

(しか)るに生を()の三界に受けたる者、苦を離るる者あらんや。

How can anyone who receives life in this threefold world hope to free himself from suffering?

Among those who were born in the threefold world, is there anyone who is released from suffering?

()(かん)応供(おうぐ)すら(なお)此くの(ごと)し、(いわん)底下(ていげ)凡夫(ぼんぷ)をや。

Even those who attain the status of arhat and are worthy to receive alms cannot do so, much less those who are mere ordinary mortals on a much lower level.

Even an arhat who is worthy of receiving offerings cannot escape suffering, not to mention lowly common mortals.
