Gosho 草木成仏口決 The Oral Tradition regarding the Enlightenment of Plants

()(じょう)は生の成仏、非情は死の成仏、

Sentient beings attain enlightenment in life, insentient beings attain enlightenment in death.

Sentient beings attain enlightenment in this lifetime, while after death, they turn into insentient beings and attain enlightenment.

生死の成仏と云うが有情・非情の成仏の事なり。

The attainment of enlightenment in life and death refers to the attainment of enlightenment by sentient and insentient beings.

Attainment of enlightenment in this lifetime and after death represents the attainment of enlightenment of sentient beings.

其の故は我等衆生死する時塔婆(とうば)を立て開眼(かいげん)供養(くよう)するは、死の成仏にして草木成仏なり。

Hence, when we living beings die, wooden tōba memorial tablets are set up, and eye-opening ceremonies are conducted to consecrate them. This is an example of attainment of enlightenment in death, or the enlightenment of plants.

Based on the principle of the attainment of enlightenment of plants and trees, all living beings can attain enlightenment after death by having tōba tablets erected and the eye-opening ceremony conducted.
