Gosho 阿仏房尼御前御返事 The Embankments of Faith

いふと・いは()ざる()との重罪(まぬか)(がた)し、

Whether or not we speak out, it will be difficult for those who have committed the grave offense of slander to avoid retribution.

Whether or not one refutes slander, will determine whether or not one will be able to free oneself from the grave karmic sins that one committed in the past.

()つて罪のまぬがるべきを見ながら聞きながら置いてい()しめざる事・(げん)()の二徳(たちまち)に破れて大()慈悲(じひ)なり、

Our seeing, hearing, and making no attempt to stop slander that, if we spoke out, could be avoided, destroys our gifts of sight and hearing, and is utterly merciless.

One’s own negative karma can be eradicated if one teaches true Buddhism to others. However, if one sees and hears slander and does not denounce it, the one’s two virtues of correct sight and hearing immediately will deteriorate, and one will become a merciless and heartless individual.

章安(しょうあん)の云く「()無くして(いつわ)り親むは(すなわ)()れ彼が(あだ)なり」等云云、

Chang-an writes, “If one befriends another person but lacks the mercy to correct him, one is in fact his enemy.”

The Great Teacher Zhangan stated, “If you associate with those [who slander the true Law] and lack the compassion to correct them, then you are, in fact, their enemy.”

重罪消滅しがたし

The consequences of a grave offense are extremely difficult to erase.

It is extremely difficult to eradicate a sin as grave as this.
