 ご真筆:京都市妙覚寺、他五ケ所にて断簡所蔵。

As for the genuine handwriting, fragmentary documents are possessed in five places including the Myokakuji Temple in Kyoto.




 日蓮管見(かんけん)を以て一代聖教並びに法華経の文を(かんが)うるに(いま)(これ)を見ず、法華経の名を挙げて(あるい)は之を(なげう)ち、或は其の門を()ずる等と云う事を、

Limited as my view may be, I have never seen any passage in any of the sacred teachings set forth in the Buddha’s lifetime or in the text of the Lotus Sutra itself that cites the Lotus Sutra by name and says one should abandon it or close the door on its doctrines.

Citing the name of the Lotus Sutra, he says people abandon it or should close the door on its doctrines. As my view, Nichiren has never seen any sentences in the sacred teachings set it forth in the Buddha's lifetime or in the text of the Lotus Sutra itself.

()(しか)らば(ほう)(ねん)上人の(たの)む所の弥陀(みだ)本願の誓文(せいもん)(なら)びに法華経の(にゅう)阿鼻(あび)(ごく)の釈尊の(かい)(もん)如何(いかん)ぞ之を(まぬか)る可けんや、

This being the case, then how can one escape from [the exceptions mentioned in] Amida’s original vow, the vow upon which the Honorable Hōnen relies, or from the warning set forth by Shakyamuni Buddha that those who slander the Lotus Sutra “will enter the Avīchi hell”.

If this is truth, how can the priest Honen escape from Amida's original vow which he relies upon, or from the warning set forth by Shakyamuni Buddha that those who slander the Lotus Sutra 'will enter the Avichi hell'?

法然上人無間(むけん)(ごく)()せば所化(しょけ)の弟子並びに諸檀那(だんな)()共に阿鼻(あび)大城(だいじょう)()ちんか、

And if the Honorable Hōnen falls into the hell of incessant suffering, then those disciples he has converted to his teachings, and his various lay supporters as well, will all together enter the great citadel of the Avīchi hell.

If the priest Honen falls into the hell of incessant suffering, his disciples and various supporters who have converted to his teachings should enter to the grand castle of the Avichi hell all together.

今度(このたび)分明(ふんみょう)なる証文を(いだ)して法然上人の阿鼻(あび)の炎を消さる可し云云。

In the future you must come forward with some clear and convincing passage of proof if you hope to quench the flames of the Avīchi hell that beset the Honorable Hōnen.

At that time, you must offer the convincing sentence that was proved if you hope to quench the flames of the Avichi hell that beset the priest Honen.
