Gosho 南部六郎三郎殿(波木井三郎殿)御返事 Reply to Nambu Rokurō Saburō 

 仏記して云く「我が滅度の後・後の五百歳の中に広宣流布し閻浮(えんぶ)(だい)に於いて断絶せしむること無けん」等云云。

 The Buddha, speaking of the future, said, “After I have passed into extinction, in the last five-hundred-year period you must spread it abroad widely throughout Jambudvīpa and never allow it to be cut off.”

 Shakyamuni Buddha states, “In the fifth five-hundred-year Period after I pass into extinction, the Law will be propagated throughout the world, and you must never allow its flow to cease.”

 天台記して云く「後の五百歳遠く妙道に(うるお)わん」等云云、

 The Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai predicted, “In the last five-hundred-year period, the mystic way will spread and benefit humankind far into the future.”

 Tiantai annotated this as follows, “In the fifth Five-hundred-year Period, the Lotus Sutra shall spread and benefit all livings far into the future.”

 伝教大師記して云く「正像(しょうぞう)(やや)過ぎ(おわ)つて末法(はなは)だ近きに有り、法華一乗の機(いま)(まさ)しく是れ其の時なり」等云云、

 And the Great Teacher Dengyō wrote, “The Former and Middle Days are almost over, and the Latter Day is near at hand. Now indeed is the time when the one vehicle of the Lotus Sutra will prove how perfectly it fits the capacities of all people.”

 Great Teacher Dengyō stated, “The Former and the Middle Day of the Law are almost over, and the Latter Day of the Law is near at hand. This is the time when, due to their capacity, the people can be saved only by the one vehicle of the Lotus Sutra.”

 此れ等の経釈(きょうしゃく)は末法の(はじめ)を指し示すなり、

 These passages from the sutra and its commentaries all point to the beginning of the Latter Day of the Law.

 These teachings and annotations indicate the beginning of the Latter Day of the Law.

 (中略)当に知るべし、

 ….You must understand this.

 ....Certainly you must know this.

 残る所の本門の教主・妙法の五字一閻(いちえん)()(だい)流布(るふ)せんこと(うたがい)無き者か。

 The time has come for the lord of the essential teaching, who had not yet appeared, to make his advent, and for the five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo, which have never before been propagated, to be spread throughout Jambudvīpa. Can any doubt exist?

 The five characters of Myoho-Renge-Kyo and the words of the master of the essential teaching of the Lotus Sutra have never spread [in the Former and the Middle Days of the Law.] There is no doubt that all the people throughout the entire world will come to know the master and the five characters of Myoho-Renge-Kyo.
