Gosho 法華初心成仏抄 Attaining Enlightenment at the Initial Stage of faith through the Lotus Sutra


よき師とは指したる世間の(とが)無くして(いささか)へつ()らうことなく、少欲知足にして慈悲有らん僧の経文に(まか)せて法華経を読み(たも)ちて人をも(すす)めて持たせん僧をば、仏は一切の僧の中に(よき)第一の法師なりと()められたり、

A good teacher is a priest who is free from any fault in secular affairs, who never fawns upon others even in the slightest, who desires and is satisfied with little, and who is compassionate; a priest who reads and upholds the Lotus Sutra precisely as it teaches and also encourages and leads others to embrace it. Such a priest the Buddha has praised among all priests as the finest teacher of the Law.

An excellent master is a compassionate priest who is innocent of any misdeeds, never fawns on others, is content with little, reads and maintains his faith in the Lotus Sutra as taught in the sutra, and encourages others to embrace the Lotus Sutra. Such a priest is praised by the Buddha as the teacher of the Law, supreme among all the priests.

(よき)檀那(だんな)とは貴人にもよらず賤人(せんにん)をもにくまず、上にもよらず下をもいやしまず、一切・人をば用いずして一切経の中に法華経を持たん人をば一切の人の中に(よき)人なりと仏は説給へり

A good believer is one who does not depend upon persons of eminence or despise those of humble station; who does not rely on the backing of superiors or look down on inferiors; who, not relying upon the opinions of others, upholds the Lotus Sutra among all the sutras. Such a person the Buddha has called the best of all people.

An excellent believer is the one who does not grovel before the nobles, does not despise a lowly person, does not rely on people’s opinions, and instead, takes faith in the Lotus Sutra among all sutras. According to the Buddha, such a believer is the best of all individuals.

(よき)法とは()の法華経を最為(さいい)第一の法と説かれたり

As for a good teaching, the Buddha has told us that this sutra, the Lotus, represents the foremost among all doctrines.

The excellent Law is the Lotus Sutra.

已説(いせつ)の経の中にも、今説(こんせつ)の経の中にも、当説(とうせつ)の経の中にも此の経第一と見えて候へば吉法なり

Among all the sutras the Buddha “has preached,” among those he “now preaches,” and among those he “will preach,” this sutra is designated as foremost, and therefore it is a good teaching.

Compared with all the sutras that the Buddha has preached, now preaches, and will preach, the Lotus Sutra reigns supreme. That is why it is defined as the excellent Law.
