Gosho 開目抄 Opening of the Eyes

()ま日蓮・(ごう)(じょう)に国土の謗法(ほうぼう)を責むれば()の大難の(きた)るは、過去の重罪の今生(こんじょう)護法(ごほう)(まね)()だせるなるべし、

When I vigorously berate those throughout the country who slander the Law, I meet with great difficulties. It must be that my actions in defending the Law in this present life are calling forth retributions for the grave offenses of my past.

Now that I, Nichiren, vigorously refuted the slanderers in the land, this severe persecution has occurred. This indicates that my past heavy slanders have come to the surface through protecting the Law in this lifetime.

鉄は火に()わざれば黒し、火と合いぬれば赤し

If iron does not come into contact with fire, it remains black, but if it contacts fire, it turns red.

It can be compared to iron turning red when put into a fire, while it remains black when it is not.

木をもつて急流(はやきながれ)をかけば(なみ)山のごとし

If you place a log across a swift stream, waves will pile up like hills.

It is like a mountainous wave of water rising up when an oar is thrust into a raging river.

(ねむ)れる師子(しし)に手をつくれば(おおい)()

If you disturb asleeping lion, it will roar loudly.

Or it is like a lion roaring when its sleep is disturbed.
