20. Nichiren Addresses the Warning to Hojo Tokimune (1)

             Japanese edition


In this situation, there is no way out of the difficulty.

In October of the next month, Nichiren made up his mind and gave his disciples a letter and sent it to each place concerned. The partner is Hojo Tokimune in the first on the list, the very important person of the Shogunate, and chaityas.

It was a bloodcurdling act of Nichiren.

Hokibo went to the residence of the lay priest Yadoya with a letter of Nichiren. But he was stopped by a robust gate-keeper.

Hokibo talked to a vassal who transmits a message.

“I am Hokibo Nikko of errand of the priest Nichiren. I brought the letter to Lord Kamakura”.

On the other hand, Nichiro faced the military headquarters and stood at the door front while having a letter. The gate-keeper stopped Nichiro. Nichiro is not afraid of.

“I, called Nichiro of the disciple of priest Nichiren, brought this letter to Lord Heino Saemonnojo”.

Nissho went to Gokurakuji Temple.

“I have the letter for priest Ryoukan of Gokurakuji here”.

Nichiji ran into the Kenchoji Temple.

“Here is a letter for the priest Doryu of the Kenchoji Temple”.

The letter of Nichiren extended to 11 places in total.The other party which he sent is Tokiyori Hojo, Yoritsuna Tairano, the lay priest Yadoya, Yagenta Hojo of the shogun's vassal, Doryu of Kenchoji temple, Ryoukan of Gokurakuji, and the administrator of the Hall of the Great Buddha, Jufukuji, Jokomyoji, Tahoji,Chorakuji Temple.

Nichiren wished for the confrontation with seven temples of Kamakura in front of Tokimune Hojo of the ruler. Seven temples including Kenchoji Temple are because it is a ringleader destroying a country.

Nichiren attacks the essential qualities of these seven temples. He writes down feelings of this time by the letter that he sent to Myoho Bhikkuni as follows on September 6 in the Koan first year (in 1278).


“Moreover, after the state power shifted to the east and the years went by, many of the leaders of the Shingon sect which lost the sovereigns of the country made their way to Kamakura, where they ingratiated themselves with the Kamakura shogunate. Because they had originally been priests of high standing, they were able to make various deceptions to gain favor and to have themselves appointed superintendents of various temples in Kamakura. In addition, the Nembutsu priests, taking advantage of their position as counselors to those in power, became chief priests of the Hall of the Great Buddha, Chorakuji, Gokurakuji, and other temples, while persons of the Zen sect came to be respected as chief priests of Jufukuji, Kenchoji, and other temples. Thus, in Kamakura offenses were committed that were a million times graver than that which brought about the failure of the Retired Emperor of Oki”.


The retired emperor Gotoba either loses at a fight of Zhokyu 50 years ago and is banished into the island of Oki and passed away for reasons of the wicked religion. These wicked people moved to Kamakura of east and they gain the favor of Hojo and incline the country. A country is going to perish again now in front of Mongolia without determining the wicked and the correct. The evil priests become rooted in the ground in front of Tokimune. I am the only one who can chase the Mongolia away.
