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 下】要点解説(6)

【寿量品二十七箇の大事】

第六 飲他毒薬 薬発悶乱 宛転于地の事(注)

御義口伝に云く、他とは念仏・禅・真言の謗法の比丘なり。

毒薬とは権教方便なり、法華の良薬に非ず、故に悶乱するなり。

悶とはいき(息)たゆるなり。


 寿量品の命なきが故に悶乱するなり、宛転于地とは阿鼻地獄へ入るなり云云。

諸子飲毒の事は 釈に云く「邪師の法を信受するを名けて飲毒と為す」と。

諸子とは謗法なり、飲毒とは弥陀・大日等の権法なり。


今、日蓮等の類い、南無妙法蓮華経と唱え奉るは毒を飲まざるなり。



(注)

飲他毒薬 薬発悶乱 宛転于地の事

妙法蓮華経二十八品の中で説かれる7つの例え話(法華七喩)の一つで、如来寿量品第十六で説かれる「良医病子」を示している。


その内容は「ある所に良医がいて、外国から戻ると、百余人の自分の子供達が留守中に誤って毒薬を飲み苦しんでいた。

父親の医師は直ぐに良薬を調合し子等に与える。半数の子は症状が軽かったので、すぐにその薬飲んで助かるが、重症の子は本心を失っていたので、その薬は色も香りも良くないと言って飲もうとしなかった。

 そこで父親は方便をもって子供に告げた。「私は老いてもう命はいくばくもない。また旅に出るがこの薬を置いていくので飲みなさい」

 そして医師は旅先から従者に「父は旅先で亡くなった」と子供に告げるよう依頼する。それを聞いた子等は父をなくした悲しみで本心を取り戻し、父が残した良薬を飲み病状を回復する。


この譬喩における良医は仏、良薬は法華経、毒薬を飲んで本心を失った子等は邪法に惑わされている衆生を意味している。

 

 末法においては、良医は末法の本仏日蓮大聖人、良薬は南無妙法蓮華経(十界の曼荼羅御本尊)、毒薬に苦しむ子等は、妙法蓮華経に出会っても信じる事が出来ず邪宗に苦しむ衆生を示す。

24. The Wall of Kosen-ruhu 5

                 Japanese Edition


Nichiren expresses this secret by a letter to Ota Jomyo, it is not Toki Jonin or Shijo Kingo. On April 8 in 4th year of Ko'an era, six months before Nichiren passes away, Ota Jomyo is given ‘The approval of the Law of great three secret’ which was entrusted with building of the sanctuary of religious precepts for the doctrine of essential.


“These Three Great Secret Laws are the teachings that were orally inherited to Nichiren unquestionably as the leader of the bodhisattvas welling up from the ground more than two thousand years odd ago originally by the great master attaining Buddhahood. (Omission). Until now I have kept this doctrine secret within my mind. But if I do not leave behind me a written record, the future followers of my teachings will say that I was without pity or compassion and perhaps slander me. And at that time, I would have no way to refute their rebuke and should regret it. Therefore, I send this to you. After you have read this first, you keep secret and must not show others this, telling is useless too. The reason that the Lotus Sutra is preached as the sole great act of various Buddha's advent. It is because this sutra includes the Law of three great secret. Keep secret. Keep this secretly!”.


The words 'that were orally inherited to Nichiren unquestionably as the leader of the bodhisattvas welling up from the ground by the great master attaining Buddhahood' mean that Nichiren is the reincarnation of Jogyo bodhisattva. But, it was almost rare to have shown this inner determination. He had said only besides in this way,

"Nichiren had definitely faced each other and decided it orally in the Eagle Peak. The Gohonzon is the body in itself of the votary of the Lotus Sutra".

This is spoken in the 25th 'Evincing the Gohonzon' of the important point of the Life Span chapter 27 of 'the oral instruction of the Lotus Sutra'(the doctrine orally conveyed) which orally inherited to Nikko of the succession.

This was not an understandable thing for then believers absolutely. A believer only incur suspicion if he said it carelessly. On the contrary, this shows how trust to the understanding to Buddhism of Ota Jomyo who is a layman believer was high for Nichiren. Therefore, he did not speak out a firm belief "a hoping is the capital punishment" to other believers carelessly.


Contrary to this supreme conviction, Nichiren was deadlocked.

Has continued appealing for the justice of the Lotus Sutra for nearly 20 years from 32 years old and spread a daimoku. He trounced various sects and was going to build a country where the Lotus Sutra spread. But, though the daimoku of a title spread, the root of Japan does not change. The various denominations were still in their original condition and the ruler refuses to listen.

The bad reputation of Nichiren who calls Nembutsu the hell of incessant sufferings goes on increasing. Japan straying stays such deep.

The name called Nichiren was going to be sunk among the current of history in this way with being ignored.

The people of Kamakura widely talked about him. "An unknown Buddhist priest will defy lord Kamakura of the world and famous priest Ryoukan of Gokurakuji, he does not know his place too much. He should be more aware of his limitations".

However, a situation to surround Ryoukan with Nichiren suddenly switches from the unexpected occurrence.


Continued to ‘The showdown by the rain in Gokurakuji Ryoukan and Nichiren’.

The Hōjō clan in Kamakura could not have firmly established itself as the ruler of Japan had it not been for the challenges posed by Yoshimori and the Retired Emperor of Oki.

The Hojo clan of Kamakura was not able to prosper as the ruler of Japan if they did not fight with Yoshimori and the retired Emperor of Oki.

In this sense these men were the best allies the ruling clan could have.
