Gosho 新池殿御消息 Letter to Lord Ni'ike

しかるに如来の聖教に(ずい)他意(たい)(ずい)自意(じい)と申す事あり。

One should understand that, of the sacred teachings of the Thus Come One, there are those that are preached “in accordance with the minds of others,” and those that are preached “in accordance with the Thus Come One’s own mind.”

Nevertheless, the Buddha taught two kinds of teachings: the teaching expounded by the Buddha according to the capacity of the people and the teaching expounded by the Buddha according to his own mind.

(たと)えば子の心に親の(したが)うをば随他意と申す、

Thus, when a parent yields to the will of his or her child, that is a case of the former.

The Buddha’s teaching according to the minds of the people is like parents following the minds of their children.

親の心に子の随うをば随自意と申す。

But when the child complies with the will of the parent, that is the latter.

Making the children follow the own minds of their parents represents the Buddha’s teaching based on his own mind..

諸経は随他意なり、仏一切衆生の心に随ひ(たも)ふ故に。

All the other sutras are examples of preaching in accordance with the minds of others, because, when expounding them, the Buddha adjusted himself to the minds of all other living beings.

The Buddha taught various sutras, taking into account the people’s capacity.

法華経は随自意なり、一切衆生を仏の心に随へたり。

But the Lotus Sutra is an example of preaching in accordance with the Buddha’s own mind, because in it the Buddha had all living beings comply with his own mind.

However, when the Buddha expounded the Lotus Sutra, he expounded the teaching according to his own mind [revealing the truth of his own enlightenment], making all people follow the will of the Buddha.

諸経は仏説なれども(これ)を信ずれば衆生の心にて(なが)く仏にならず、

The various other sutras represent the teachings of the Buddha, but if one puts faith in them, then one is simply following the minds of ordinary people and will never be able to attain Buddhahood.

Though various sutras were expounded by the Buddha, they are based on the minds of the people. Thus, one will never be able to attain enlightenment despite one’s faith in these sutras.

法華経は仏説(ぶっせつ)なり(ぶっ)()なり、

The Lotus Sutra is both the teaching of the Buddha and the embodiment of the Buddha wisdom.

The Lotus Sutra is the Buddha’s true teaching as well as his wisdom.

一字一点も是を深く信ずれば我が身(そく)仏となる。

If one puts sincere faith in each character and brushstroke in it, then one will become a Buddha in one’s present form.

If one sincerely believes in a single character or a single stroke of it, one will immediately attain Buddhahood.
