Gosho 法華初心成仏抄 Attaining Enlightenment at the Initial Stage of faith through the Lotus Sutra

我が()(しん)の妙法蓮華経を本尊とあがめ奉りて、我が己心中の仏性、南無妙法蓮華経とよびよばれて顕はれ給ふ(ところ)を仏とは云ふなり。

When we revere Myoho-renge-kyo inherent in our own life as the object of devotion, the Buddha nature within us is summoned forth and manifested by our chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. This is what is meant by “Buddha”.

If we worship Myoho-renge-kyo of our mind as the Gohonzon, the nature of Buddha in our mind summons Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. This condition to call each other is called Buddha.

(たと)へば(かご)の中の鳥なけば空とぶ鳥のよばれて集まるが如し。空飛ぶ鳥の集まれば籠の中の鳥も()でんとするが如し。

To illustrate, when a caged bird sings, birds who are flying in the sky are thereby summoned and gather around, and when the birds flying in the sky gather around, the bird in the cage strives to get out.

For example, when a caged bird sings, birds who are flying in the sky are thereby summoned and gather around, and when the birds flying in the sky gather around, the bird in the cage tries to get out.

口に妙法をよび奉れば、我が身の仏性もよばれて必ず顕はれ給ふ。

When with our mouths we chant the Mystic Law, our Buddha nature, being summoned, will invariably emerge.

When with our mouths we chant the marvelous Law, our inner Buddha's nature, being summoned, will appear by all means.

(ぼん)(のう)帝釈(たいしゃく)の仏性はよばれて我等を守り給ふ。仏菩薩の仏性はよばれて悦び給ふ。

The Buddha nature of Brahmā and Shakra, being called,will protect us, and the Buddha nature of the Buddhas and bodhisattvas, being summoned, will rejoice.

The Buddha's natures of Brahmā and Shakra, being called, will protect us, and Buddha's natures of Buddha and bodhisattvas, being summoned, will rejoice.

されば「()(しばら)くも(たも)つ者は我(すなわ)ち歓喜す諸仏も(また)(しか)なり」と説き給ふは此の心なり。

This is what the Buddha meant when he said, “If one can uphold it [the Mystic Law] even for a short while I will surely rejoice and so will the other Buddhas”.

Therefore, 'If a person kept this Lotus Sutra even during a little, I will delight, all the Buddha is same too'. It is this mind that preached so.

されば三世の諸仏も妙法蓮華経の五字を以て仏に成り給ひしなり。

All Buddhas of the three existences, too, attain Buddhahood by virtue of the five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo.

All the Buddha of the three existences, past, the present and future, too, had attained Buddhahood by the five words of Myoho-renge-kyo.

三世の諸仏の出世の本懐、一切衆生(かい)成仏(じょうぶつ)(どう)の妙法と云ふは是なり。

These five characters are the reason why the Buddhas of the three existences appear in the world; they are the Mystic Law whereby all living beings can attain the Buddha way.

This is the purpose why all the Buddha of the three existences appeared in the world, it is the marvelous Law where all living beings can attain the Buddhahood.

是等の(おもむき)()く能く心得て、仏になる道には我慢(がまん)偏執(へんしゅう)の心なく、南無妙法蓮華経と唱へ奉るべき者なり。

You should understand these matters thoroughly and, on the path of attaining Buddhahood, chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo without arrogance or attachment to biased views.

You understand these meanings well really and, on this road for becoming Buddha, should chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo without arrogance or bias.
