26. Nichiren Pray for Rain Hard. 4

           Japanese edition


People crowded in front of a hall of Nichiren under the glaring sun. The crowd puts up a umbrella or wears headdress to avoid hot rays.

The party of Nichiren came out. They appeared in a gray robe in contrast with a prompter of Ryoukan.

Nichiren attracted the hope of Kamakura at a stretch.

The public gives a glad shout.

“Dear priest Nichiren!”.

And a person to chant "Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo" aloud appeared in here. The rainy wish is urgent for a farmer suffering from a drought. Thought that they cannot but cling to the Lotus Sutra of the priest Nichiren arises sincerely there if Nembutsu of priest Ryoukan is no use.

The party of the members departed with Shijo Kingo and Toki Jonin in the lead. Nichirou has a candlestick, Nissho has a vase, Hokibo has a incense burner and they advance. Boy Kumao proudly had the flag of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo which was written large.

A crowd followed them. They hailed to a back of Nichiren.

"Priest Nichiren, where do you go to?".

Hokibo is firm determination. But most disciples were uneasy looks.


Gokurakuji Temple was quiet. A believer is sparse into the hall of a Buddhist temple.

Ryoukan was haggard, but he put on a brave face.

He has begun to talk in desperation.

“This matter is insignificant. If what's called rainy prayer prays ten times, and even once rains, it is a great success. This Ryoukan will bring rain surely next time. Therefore, it is too thoughtless to fight for bringing rain and…”.

Ryoukan was insulted in public, but he did not stop sermon. He was desperate to stop the believer who is leaving.

Then Suobo was sweaty and came into the hall.

Ryoukan warns him.

“What's wrong? What's the rush?”.

Suobo seemed to be quite afraid.

“Nichiren seems to begin rainy prayer”.

The believers who heard him went out one after another.
