Gosho 聖愚問答抄 Question and Answers between a Sage and a Foolish Man

(しか)れば章安(しょうあん)大師涅槃(ねはん)(じょ)に釈して云く「昔は時(たいら)かにして法弘まる、(まさ)に戒を持すべし(つえ)を持すること(なか)

“Therefore, the Great Teacher Chang-an in his commentary on the Nirvana Sutra states: ‘In past times the age was peaceful, and the Law spread throughout the country. At that time it was proper to observe the precepts and not to carry staves.”

That is why the Great Teacher Zhangan gave the following interpretation in his Annotationson the Nirvana Sutra:

In olden times, it was peaceful, and the [true] Law was propagated. In such times, one should uphold precepts and not take up arms.

今は時(さか)しくして法(かく)る、(まさ)に杖を持すべし戒を持すること勿れ

“But now the age is perilous, and the Law is overshadowed. Therefore, it is proper to carry staves and to disregard the precepts.”

The present times, however, is defiled and the true Law is eclipsed. As a time like this, one should take up arms and not uphold precepts.

今昔(とも)に嶮しくば倶に杖を持すべし、今昔倶に平かならば応に倶に戒を持すべし、

“If both past and present were perilous times, then it would be proper to carry staves in both periods. And if both past and present were peaceful times, then it would be proper to observe the precepts in both of them.”

In both past and present, if an era is evil, one should take up arms. In both past and present, if an era is peaceful, one should uphold precepts.

取捨(しゅしゃ)(よろし)きを得て一向(いっこう)にす()からず」と此の釈の意分明(ふんみょう)なり、

 “You should let your choices befitting and never adhere solely to one or the other.” The meaning of this passage of commentary is perfectly clear.

One’s decision [on which method to use] should be made in accordance with the time. One should not adhere solely to one or the other.

The meaning of this passage is clear.
