Gosho 頼基陳状 一 The Statements from Yorimoto. 1

頼基陳状

The Letter of Petition from Yorimoto.

The Statements from Yorimoto.

建治三年六月 五十六歳代作

June, 1277. Fifty-six years old. Ghostwrote.


持戒・持律の良観房は法華真言の義理を極め慈悲(じひ)第一と聞へ給う、上人の数百人の衆徒を(ひき)いて七日の間にいかにふらし給はぬやらむ

Why is it, then, that the Honorable Ryōkan who observes all the precepts and rules, has mastered the Lotus and True Word doctrines, and is renowned as the foremost in compassion, cannot produce rainfall within seven days, even when assisted by hundreds of his followers?

“The holy priest Ryoukan most superior in religious precepts achieved the doctrines of Lotus Sutra and Shingon and it is said that the mercy is the best. Why can you not bring rain during the seven days while in command of several hundred believers?".

を以て思ひ給へ、一(じょう)の堀を越えざる者二丈三丈の堀を越えてんや

Consider this: if one cannot cross a moat ten feet wide, can one cross a moat that is twenty or thirty feet wide?

"Think with this, can the person who does not jump over the fosse of a feet jump over the fosse of ten feet or 20 feet?".

やす()き雨をだに・ふらし給はず(いわん)かた()往生(おうじょう)成仏をや、

If you cannot bring about rainfall, which is easy, how can you attain rebirth in the pure land and achieve Buddhahood, which is difficult?

"You cannot bring even easy rain and the difficult rebirth and attaining of Buddhahood go without saying”.
