The Last Religious Precepts by Nikko (1). 日興遺誡置文一

The Last Religious Precepts by Nikko.

January 13, 1333. Nikko Shonin, eighty-eight years old.


If I think, the sun of the propagating in the latter days of the Law lights up the darkness of the atrocious slander, and the marvelous wind of the eternal life span blows off the provisional and temporary teachings that Buddha had attained enlightenment in Buddha Gaya. Oh, for example, it is a fig which blooms only once in 3000 years, and the hole of the tree of a floating sandalwood in the vast ocean that it is rare to encounter the Law of Buddha, moreover, it is thought that these metaphors do not be enough.

Fortunately, we were able to encounter this sutra by destiny being thick deeply. Therefore, the reasons why I write a precept for the future disciples is for receiving the wise saying of Kosen-rufu.

1. The doctrine of Fuji should not be different in the least from the propagation which the previous teacher performed.

2. The doctrine of five people all differ from the propagation of the previous teacher.

3. There is a person considering writings of Daishonin to be forgery and they will destroy and criticize our sect. You must not get close to him familiarly if such an evil priest appeared.

4. There will be a person who make forgery, and call it a writing of Daishonin, and there will be a person training himself putting the same value on the essence and the provisional. You should understand that he is a traitor within the walls.

5. Without criticizing against slandering Buddha's Law, you must not spend time for a play and an idle talk and not take to a non-Buddhist writing and an art.

6. You must forbid Shinto shrine worship and visit of the believers. Why they visit the Buddhist temple and Shinto shrine of the evil spirit intrusion, disobeying Buddha's teachings for a glance with a low talent? It is never enough to be chagrined. This is not doctrine of me totally but depends on text of a sutra or writing of Daishonin and so on.

7. You allow not engaging in the trivial routine duties of the teacher about the disciple having the talent and must let him learn various teachings including a writing of Daishonin.

8. The populace who is inexperienced in study and who wants a fame and fortune does not deserve to be my disciple.

9. Shaking off the affection from parents and teacher while the believers of me in the future do not understand Lotus Sutra and pre-Lotus Sutra, for leaving this world of the sufferings and attaining enlightenment, they visit this temple and must study.

10. You must not do study of Tientai school without grasp of the doctrine.

11. In our denomination, you dye sublime writing of Daishonin into your soul and convey the supreme theory from a teacher, and should hear Tientai if there is spare time.

12. Enjoy the discussion and lectures and not mix up the other things.

13. While Kosen-ruhu does not yet be achieved, you should propagate the Law until the full extent of your ability, without begrudging life.
