23. Fetal Movement of the Powerful Enemy

                 Japanese edition


There are the restless waves in the sandy beach of Awa of the hometown of Nichiren, and the working of nature which does not change for tens of thousands of years either is repeated.

However, the Seichoji Temple was wrapped to the restless unusually.

Enchibo of the noble priest just was in his deathbed now.

The priest of Dozenbo, Jokenbo, gijobo and others and supporters of the temple from old times gathered near a floor of Enchibo.

There was the person who was already filled with tears in young monk.

Enchibo could not raise his upper body anymore and he began to say while prostrating himself on the floor.

“I had said my thanks three times to one word several decades while copying the Lotus Sutra. This good virtue will glisten in the next life. I go to the Pure Land from now. On the other hand, Nichiren interpreted the Lotus Sutra by mistake. Forcible shakubuku will ruin oneself sometime soon. All of you, please keep it in mind very much”.

Enchibo despised Nichiren until the final stage of death.

There is a person weeping silently and a person putting hands together.

He breathed his last at long last. Enchio's complexion was tinged with a reddish tinge like a peach.

The aged priest of the Seichoji admired it.

"This is a looks of attaining Buddhahood!".

The body of Enchibo was placed in a coffin at midnight of the next day, and a funeral service was held as being lead by priest Dozenbo at the time of the rat [from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.].

When the funeral service was finished, his coffin was opened and his face was covered with white cloth.

Dozenbo and disciple Gijobo and Jokenbo sit down.

Dozenbo finished a duty and indicated the expression that seemed to be completely absentminded and thanked two disciple who worked earnestly in preparation for a funeral service.

“Enchibo would leave for Hades in this safely. Well, that's a relief. By the way, Enchibo was just the distinguished priest who represented successive priests of Seichoji Temple if looked back and thought. He was the talented person who collected the respect of the believer”.

Gijobo seems to be dissatisfied.

“However, did he not have many mistakes, too?”.

Dozenbo glared.

Hey, in spite of a just completed funeral service, what do you want to say?”.

Gijobo looks at a facial expression of Enchibo fitting into a coffin.

“This person kept on tormenting the teacher Dozenbo. He only blamed the priest Nichiren too”.

Dozenbo soothed them.

“Well, well, but was already finished. Because I am timid, I cause you trouble”.

Jikenbo sidled up to Dozenbo.

“Teacher, if you are converted to the Lotus Sutra, the priest Nichiren will be surely pleased. It is not unusual for a priest to change faiths. It is not at all a shameful. We wish for your early decision in a moment”.

Dozenbo hesitate as always.

After all is he coward?

Jokenbo and Gijobo gave him up, and looked at each other, and they bowed and left.

Dozenbo was left in the hall of temple, then something occurred to him incidentally.

He went to the coffin. He has a bad feeling.

The Dozenbo took off a cloth covering a countenance of Enchibo fearfully.

When he opened it out approximately half, he watched that Enchibo's face had become coal-black as dyed it with a ink.

The one eye of Enchibo is opening to scowl at Dozenbo.

Dozenbo was astonished at this face of death and walked backward.

The complexion of Enchibo glistened with pink at first, but had discolored to black with progress of time.
