15. Nichiren Suffers the Banishment to Izu. (2)

              Japanese edition


Hokibo carried a hot water to the wooden cup. Nichiren gulped down it as if he had waited impatiently.

Jonin of the head of the family entered there.

Nichiren was smiling.

“Lord Jonin,I really appreciate all of your help”.

Jonin adjusted clothes and sat straight before Nichiren with excruciating politeness.

“I am sorry to have given me such august words. My kinsman, co-worker was converted into our sect by the sermon of the priest, and I made friends of Law. I am most grateful. By the way, it is presumptuous, but I have one thought”.

"Hum, is it about the propagation?".

"Yes. How do you think about that you base on the place of this Shimousa from now on? The enemy is not here unlike Kamakura, and Lord Chiba of the military governor is the influental vassal in the Shogunate. Even if Hojo clan, they do not dabble carelessly. In addition, the hometown of the priest is near, too. The delicious food collected from the sea and mountain, these are superior unlike others. How do you like it?".
 Nichiren answers.
 "Thank you for your kindness. But this Nichiren intends to spread Law to the last at Kamakura of the center of the power politics of Japan. Kamakura is the capital of this Japan. It is the place where a Japanese ruler resides. I want to spread Law until the ruler keeps the Lotus Sutra".
 “The movement of the Shogunate do not be known at all after the priest had a talk to lord Saimyoji the other day. I wonder what has become of the Shogunate about 'the Treatise of Establishing the Correct Teachings for the Safety of the Nation’. Did lay priest Saimyoji see it? I felt my way in various ways, but it was no use".

Nichiren answered after he included mouthful hot water.

“Because there are Lord Daigaku Sabro of the official Confucianist or Lord Yadoya of the Shogunate chief vassal, he must be told an important thing, even if lord Saimyoji does not look at it. In addition, people around must have been amazed. If lord Saimyoji is a wise man, he should understand it by all means”.

Jonin mutters in mind.

(What kind of difficulty befalls the priest if Saimyoji is foolish?).
