末法の本仏の立場で法華経一部二十八品を直弟子日興上人に口伝した書【御義口伝 上】要点解説(53)

【法師品十五箇の大事】

第二 成就大願 愍衆生故 生於悪世 広演此経の事
 (訳) 衆生を愍(あわれむ)故に、悪世に生まれ、 広く此の経(妙法蓮華経)を説くという大願を成就せり。

御義口伝に云く、大願とは法華弘通なり。
愍衆生故とは、日本国の一切衆生なり、生於悪世の人とは日蓮等の類いなり。 

 広とは南閻浮提なり(注)、此経とは題目なり。

今、日蓮等の類い、南無妙法蓮華経と唱え奉る者なり。


(注)

南閻浮提
(なんえんぶだい)
閻浮提とも称する。サンスクリットJumbūdvīpaの音訳で、人の住む世界、つまり全世界を意味する。

日蓮大聖人は「顕仏未来記」で次のように説かれておられます。

「月は西より出でて東を照し、日は東より出でて西を照す。
仏法も又以て是くの如し、正像(釈迦滅後二千年)には西より東に向い、末法には東より西に往く。<中略>
法華経の第八に云く「如来の滅後に於て閻浮提の内に広く流布せしめて断絶せざらしめん」等云云。
内の字は三洲を嫌う文なり。

 問うて曰く、仏記既に此くの如し、汝が未来記如何。
答えて曰く、仏記に順じて之を勘うるに、既に後五百歳(末法)の始に相当れり、仏法必ず東土の日本より出づべきなり」と。

       Japanese edition

From Biography of Nichiren Daishonin


It was a quiet night. That was August 27, 1260 when approximately one month passed after he gives 'The Treatise of Establishing the Correct Teachings for the Safety of the Nation'.

The approximately 100 crowds who were led by a Nembutsu priest of black clothes gathered in the open air without a sound and surrounded the thatched hut of the Matsuba Valley.

The faces are lighted up by the torch, and, in darkness, only eyes shine glaringly. They raised the torch which they held in a hand before long and set fire to the thatched hut of Nichiren.

It snapped as it burned in a moment. The reaction of the treatise revealed the worst result.

When Nichiren woke to an outside sound to be excited, a bedroom had been wrapped in gray smoke.

“Get up, everybody, there is a fire!”.

Disciples stood up in a hurry and were going to go out, but they were astonished that a crowd blocked them.

A crowd yell equally.

“The enemy of Nembutsu. Murder him!”.

Disciples pushed their way through the crowd and intended to secure the road of retreat of Nichiren desperately.

Nichiren was at a loss among smoke around.

Hokibo led Nichiren by the hand at this time.

“Over here, priest!”.

Hokibo goes to the back entrance. Disciples followed.

The crowd of Nembutsu cheered to the flame which blazed. The house is wrapped in flame and is burnt and falls apart.

The two masked samurais stood behind the people of Nembutsu.

The town official rushed here.

“What's going on here? The arson is a grave offense that deserves a form of capital punishment in Kamakura. I will capture you. You are my prisoner!”.

The crowd who surrounded a thatched hut panicked like scattering sparks literally and ran away.

When force of the fire calmed down, a fire brigade began to break the thatched hut of Nichiren.

Two masked samurais stare at this scene distant. They were parent and child of Shigetoki Hojo and Nagatoki.

Nagatoki is working as the regent now. Shigetoki of father was called Gokurakuji who was wealthy supporters of the temple of Gokurakuji Ryokan.

Nichiren was an enemy of Nembutsu for Shigetoki and was an enemy of Ryokan.

Nichiren comments on Shigetoki Hojou in a letter addressed to Munenaga of the younger brother of Ikegami brothers as follows later.

“Lord Gokurakuji was a respectable person. However, he himself and his clan became extinct because he was tempted by people of Nembutsu and bore a grudge against Nichiren”. Letter to Munenaga Ikegami’.
