29. Warning to Yoritsuna Tirano. 3

  Japanese edition


A petty functionary raised a voice.

“Priest Nichiren appears”.

Nichiren manifested himself. He was quiet looks unusually.

Vassals of Yoritsuna surrounded Nichiren and watched him as like licking. It was the eyes of the wild beast for searching for game.

Nichiren sits down on a lower seat.

Shoibo made the first move.

“Are you Nichiren? Let's hear you at once. Your suspicion is an innumerable number. It is said that you gather rioters and save swords and cudgels. Is there not the falsehood?”.

Nichiren answered immediately.

“Exactly”.

All members were astonished. They did not expect that Nichiren said the testimony that would become disadvantageous from himself. However, he had said straight.

Nichiren continues quite casually.

“But the matter of the rioter is a clear falsehood. I return it as it is to the person who calls the believer of the Lotus Sutra a rioter. Next, I answer regarding swords and sticks. The bows and arrows, soldier, and cudgel for the Lotus Sutra protection is the Law that Buddha established. For example, as like collecting of sword and cudgel for the king protection”.

Words fail them for his answer of surprise.

Shoibo who should be brave shook a voice.

“You are said to have said in this way. 'The late lord Hojo Tokiyori and Lord Shigetoki had fallen into the hell. Burn down the Kenchoji and Gokurakuji Temple. Cut off the neck of both saint Ryoukan and saint Doryu’. These will not be the real intention possibly, will not it? It is a falsehood, isn't it?”.

There followed a long silence.

Yoritsuna Tairano was irritated, and called to him for the first time.

“What's wrong? Nichiren. Do you not answer?”.

Nichiren fixed the breathing here and exerted a strength of willpower and appealed.

“I had said it not changing even a single word!”.

The samurais were amazed again. There is a person falling a folding fan. Yoritsuna is dumfounded too.

“However, it is a falsehood that I said that Lord Tokiyori and Lord Shigetoki had fallen into the hell. My doctrine is because it is what I have already expressed since two people were alive”.

Yoritsuna crossed his arms and stood perfectly motionless in front of Nichiren.

"Did you go mad?".

Yoritsuna think so. It seems a challenge to the Shogunate. It is virtually that one punishes himself.

Nichiren did not take notice of the Shogunate government official who could not hide embarrassment and continued talking plainly.

 “Thinking of this country, I have said it. If you wish to maintain this world in peace and security, summon the priests of the other sects for a debate and hear. If you ignore this advice and punish me unreasonably, the government will repent. If I am punished, it will be that rejecting Buddha's envoy. And then, you will receive the punishment of Brahma and Shakra, of the gods of the sun and moon, and of the four kings of Heaven. Within one hundred days after my banishment or execution, or within one, three, or seven years, there will occur what is called the calamity of internal strife, and an intense of sword fight break out between the clan”.

All members make noise.

Nichiren who received a roar of anger became a loud voice.

“This will be followed by the calamity of foreign invasion attack from all sides and it will be particularly from the west. Then, Lord Heino Saemonnojo, you will repent what you have done!”.

Yoritsuna was enraged.

“You must be a fool! What are you saying? I can cut such your neck even right now. What do you take me for?”.

Nichiren fixed his eyes on Yoritsuna.

"You are the general of samurai".

Yoritsuna flew into a rage more.

“You think you can make a fool of me? What a rough tongue to a person controlling a samurai of Japan! I can never forgive you about erstwhile rude letter and this present violent language. Your severed head should be gibbeted!”.
