24. The Wall of Kosen-ruhu 2

                Japanese edition


Kingo pressed them for an answer.

“The public says that one who knows symptoms is called saint. The Buddhist sutra says, the one who knows the past, present, and future is a saint. If have faiths to Lotus Sutra and priest Nichiren quickly, there are peace and security of Japan. How do you like it?”.

The accuser objected.

“Why do you trouble the Shogunate while serving the Shogunate? Though there may be an attack of Mongolia to this Japan, 'cut off the neck of the Buddhist priest of other religion, burn down a temple'. Nichiren makes noise in this way. Is this not the high crime?”.

Kingo answers powerfully.

“Dear me. I am surprised at your remark. In the first place, as for having foretold that a foreign enemy attacks nine years ago, our priest Nichiren alone had accomplished it. You should keep this fact in mind. In addition, the priest Nichiren never say 'cut off the neck of the Buddhist priest of other religion and burn down a temple'. On the contrary, it is a well-known fact that the priest Ryoukan, Doryu and Nen'a are making a false statement and a false charge to the Shogunate to entrap our sect. The prayer of our Nichiren sect is to not other and is only the peace of our country and the decline of the enemy country. However, if a priest slandering the Lotus Sutra as of now prays, all gods of justice will leave from Japan and the defeat of our country is inevitable!".

The judge was upset more.

(Oh, in this situation it becomes the confrontation in the public place of Nichiren sect and the other religion!).

The accuser did a face red-hot and argued against the Kingo side.

“We do not slander the Lotus Sutra. The person valuing the Lotus Sutra is not a little. However, why you attack the other sect so much?”.

Toki Jonin, the officer of governor Chiba, makes a ready answer. He had been preparing a question and answer of assumption beforehand diligently.

“This Japan is a country of the Lotus Sutra slander. People pray for Amida and make Zen meditation while saying that the Lotus Sutra is important. Though treasure a child, they neglect a parent and though think to be drug, they drink poison. Our priest Nichiren is anxious about this and appealed to each including lord Kamakura, but there is not the answering person. He naturally be invited and should give an opinion if it depends on the formulary of adjudications, why did the Shogunate perform a banishment of him without doing it? If think of the peace of this country; this should be called the fault of politics. The Mongolia extermination cannot come true except priest Nichiren. The prayer of the wicked religion destroys Japan early! Do you know that learned and virtuous priests who served the retired emperor in the era of Zhokyu pray for lord Kamakura extermination and were destroyed adversely?”.

The accuser said it boasting.

“The judge, their remark, did you hear? This is the real shape of the Nichiren's sect itself. They are people who deceive other person and slander the Shogunate!”.

The judge wiped the sweat off his face.

“You of three people, do those remarks not be the lie falsehood? Otherwise are you ready to write pledges?”.

Pledge is to take oath to all gods of Heaven and ground. Must commit suicide if betray this.

Ota Jomyo answers.

“Precisely. However, the situation where we either serve the Shogunate. There is not the slightest grudge to our master and colleague. We only wait the due consideration of the judge”.

The hall became quiet.

Three people including Kingo were convinced of victory.

To the contrary, the judge glances down and broods. He cannot give the verdict, as the judge.

They heard a voice to be excited outdoors while fell silent. The sound gradually grew big before long.

“Has anything happened?”.

There is a crowd in front of the gate of the court.

Retainers of both the defendant and the accuser were quarreling intensely. They each fought back with a sword.

The people who was in trial went outside.

Kingo who rushed there rebuked them.

“Give over! Stop it!”.

Jonin follows.

“Is the front of the court. Quarrel confusion is no-no!”.

Punishment of the bloodshed is the territory confiscation. It becomes a banishment if not having a land. In addition, was jailed if the person concerned of the blade wound was not a samurai.

At last both sides subsided.

The judge entered among them and has declared.

"Today's trial assumes it the cancellation!".

Kingo and others were amazed. Though the victory was near at hand, it became the unexpected situation.

The judge coolly swore.

“A debate of the Law of Buddha is outside the jurisdiction of the court. Should not judge. All of you. Away with you!”.

Three people including Kingo protested fiercely, but he does not accept. The victory near at hand has disappeared suddenly.
