Gosho 十字御書 New Year's Gosho


(そもそも)地獄と仏とはいづれの所に候ぞとたづね候へば、(あるい)は地の下と申す経文もあり、或は西方等と申す経も候。

First of all,as to the question of where exactly hell and the Buddha exist, one sutra states that hell exists underground, and another sutra says that the Buddha is in the west.

When I inquire where hell and Buddhahood exist, I find that some sutras state that hell is situated below the ground; other say that the Buddha land is in the west, and so forth.

しかれども委細(いさい)にたづね候へば我等が五尺の身の内に候とみへて候。

Closer examination, however, reveals that both exist in our five-foot body.

However, when I carefully examine this matter, it appears to me that [both hell and Buddhahood] exist in our five-foot body.

さもやをぼ()へ候事は我等が心の内に父をあな()づり母を()ろかにする人は、地獄()の人の心の内に候。

This must be true because hellis in the heart of a person who inwardly despises his father and disregards his mother.

What seems plausible is that one who despises his father and neglects his mother possesses the world of hell in his heart.

(たと)へば蓮のたねの中に花と()との()ゆるがごとし。仏と申す事も我等の心の内にをは(御座)します。

It is like the lotus seed, which contains both blossom and fruit. In the same way, the Buddha dwells within our hearts.

If a comparison were to be drawn, both flower and fruit can be found within a lotus seed. The state of Buddhahood, too, exists in our own hearts.

譬へば石の中に火あり(たま)の中に(たから)のあるがごとし。

For example, flint has the potential to produce fire, and gems have intrinsic value.

For example, flint has the potential to generate fire, and a gemstone conceals intrinsic value.

我等凡夫はま()げのちかきと虚空(こくう)とを()きとは見候事なし。

We ordinary people can see neither our own eyelashes, which are so close, nor the heavens in the distance.  

We, common mortals, can neither see our own eyelashes in close proximity, nor endless space far away.

我等が心の内に仏はをは(御座)しましけるを知り候はざりけるぞ。

Likewise, we do not see that the Buddha exists in our own hearts.

Likewise, we cannot recognize that Buddhahood exists within our own hearts.
