Gosho 開目抄 Opening of the Eyes part 2

()摂受(しょうじゅ)折伏(しゃくぶく)と申す法門は水火のごとし

These two methods of shōju and shakubuku are like water and fire.

The relationship between the methods of shōju and shakubuku are like water and fire.

火は水をいとう水は火をにくむ、

Fire hates water, water detests fire.

Fire abhors waters, while water detests fire.

摂受の者は折伏をわらう折伏の者は摂受をかなしむ、

The practitioner of shōju laughs with scorn at shakubuku. The practitioner of shakubuku laments at the thought of shōju.

The practitioner of shōju despises the method of shakubuku, while those who conduct shakubuku grieve over the method of shōju.

無智・悪人の国土に充満の時は摂受を(さき)とす安楽(あんらく)行品(ぎょうぼん)のごとし、

When the country is full of evil people without wisdom, then shōju is the primary method to be applied, as described in the “Peaceful Practices” chapter.

When ignorant and impious men are rampant throughout the nation, shōju comes first, as described in the Peaceful Practices chapter on the Lotus Sutra.

邪智(じゃち)謗法(ほうぼう)の者の多き時は折伏を前とす(じょう)()軽品(きょうぼん)のごとし、

But at a time when there are many people of perverse views who slander the Law, then shakubuku should come first, as described in the “Never Disparaging” chapter.

When cunning, evil men and slanderers of the Law thrive, shakubuku should take precedence, as taught in the Bodhisattva Never Disparaging chapter of the Lotus Sutra.

(たと)へば熱き時に寒水を用い寒き時に火をこのむがごとし

It is like using cold water to cool yourself in the hot weather, or longing for a fire when the weather turns cold.

It can be likened to using cold water when it is hot, and fire when it is cold.
