Gosho 四条金吾殿御返事(法華経兵法事) The Strategy of the Lotus Sutra

四条金吾殿御返事(法華経兵法事)

The Strategy of the Lotus Sutra

弘安二年十月二十三日 五十八歳御作

October 23, 1279. Fifty-eight years old.


先度強敵(ごうてき)()()ひについて御文(おんふみ)給いき(くわし)く見まいらせ候、

I have carefully read your letter, in which you described the recent skirmish with powerful enemies.

I have read your letter in detail, in which you wrote the most recent skirmish with powerful enemies.

さても・さても・敵人にねらはれさせ給いしか。

So they have finally attacked you.

So, they have attacked you, after all, finally!

前前の用心といひ又けなげといひ、又法華経の信心つよき故に難なく存命せさせ給い()()たし目出たし。

It is a matter of rejoicing that your usual prudence and courage, as well as your firm faith in the Lotus Sutra, enabled you to survive unharmed.

It is a rejoicing that your everyday precaution, courage, and your Lotus Sutra's strong faiths enabled you to survive unharmed!

()れ運きはまりぬれば兵法もいらず、果報つきぬれば所従もしたがはず、

When one comes to the end of one’s good fortune, no strategy whatsoever avails. When one’s karmic rewards are exhausted, even one’s retainers no longer follow one.

When one is filled with good fortune, even strategy is not necessary. When luck is exhausted, even the vassals no longer follow.

所詮(しょせん)運ものこり果報もひかゆる故なり。

You survived because you still have both good fortune and rewards.

You survived because your good fortune still was remaining and because your luck either was waiting.
