Final Chapter. Teachings of Buddha in Japan flow to India 5

              Japanese edition

  

Finally, I show one experience and finish this novel.

The writer, I, visited the Daisekiji temple of the head temple of a Buddhist sect the other day.

The green mountains of Daisekiji temple were wrapped up by a drizzle and were closing in on me, and the world of the quietness was ruling this area.

The pilgrim's lodging which I visited by chance was the building for exclusive use of the overseas believer called Tokohibo. The buildings are three-storied ferroconcrete, and there is a shower room underground. The rooms had been dividing so that around ten people could sleep. Because various countries and racial believers gather, there may have been made these small rooms. There are the facilities of the Internet in the hall, too. For the convenience of the overseas believer, various devices were prepared here.

There was the sermon of the priest at the lodging in the evening. This priest belongs to the Overseas Department, and it is said that half or more of one year spend on the propagation in the foreign country. Content of the sermons was a hard luck story in foreign countries, too. His tone was serene, but rather deeply came into our mind.

The priest talked about an experience in India. There are a lot of believers of the committee of Lotus sutra in India. The priest went around each place and encouraged them.

He said, "Let's go to Japan someday and work to be able to meet the grand Gohonzon of the high sanctuary."

However, there was the person "I cannot go to Japan" among believers.

Therefore, "No, you who are good can go to Japan by all means," the priest encouraged him, but he said that he can never go. It does not seem to a financial reason.

The priest hears a reason, the believer said he had been born in the slums of a certain city. The place he was born and the name of parents are not clear. He does not have a family register such as Japan. Therefore,cannot get a passport. Far from going to Japan, he cannot go outside of India either. This believer told it last.

“Therefore, I am going to meet the grand Gohonzon in the next life”.

Nichiren Daishonin foretells the world propagation in Sado of the exile place.

“The moon appears in the west and sheds its light eastward, and the sun rises in the east and casts its rays to the west. The same is true of Buddhism. It spread from west to east in the former or middle days of the Law, but will go from east to west in the latter day of the Law”. On the Buddha’s Prophecy’.

The Buddhism that originated in India reached Japan. He assert that Law of Buddha of Daishonin originates in Japan and returns to India. Furthermore, Daishonin called oneself birth of untouchables. This Indian believer is a person of a low hierarchy too.

Is it impossible that this believer goes to Japan? Is there not the hope? No, it is not so. If the benevolence existed in the grand Gohonzon, he should be able to surely go to Japan. The possibility comes by all means sometime.

In birthplace India of the Law of Buddha, the Law of Shakyamuni Buddha has completely become outdated, but a portent of the Law of Buddha of the spread Nichiren Daishonin from Japan is seen again there. The line of the propagation that Daishonin began alone is certainly reaching the country of the moon, India. As well as disciples and the believers who entered the stage in this novel, they have a deep affection to Nichiren Daishonin, and dream of meeting the grand Gohonzon from India. And they chant aloud like us Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and are vowing the strong faiths through their life. Of course now, until the future life too.
