Gosho 四条金吾殿御消息 The Tatsunokuchi Persecution 

此の経文に一乗法と説き給うは法華経の事なり、

The “Law of the one vehicle” is the Lotus Sutra.

The Law of the one vehicle expounded in this sutra signifies the Lotus Sutra.

The only Law preached with this text of the sutra is Lotus Sutra.

十方(じっぽう)仏土の中には法華経より(ほか)は全くなきなり除仏(じょぶつ)方便説(ほうべんせつ)と見えたり。

No true teaching other than the Lotus Sutra exists in any of the Buddha lands of the ten directions. The sutra continues, “There are not two, there are not three, except when the Buddha preaches so as an expedient means”.

There exists no true teaching other than the Lotus Sutra in the Buddha lands of the ten directions. The sutra further states, “The Buddha’s teachings of the expedient means are excluded”.

The others do not exist than the Lotus Sutra in the Buddha countries of the ten directions at all. This is because Shakyamuni says so. ‘Removes the teachings of the means of the Buddha’.

()(しか)らば日蓮が難に()う所ごとに仏土なるべきか。 

This being so, then every place where Nichiren meets persecution is the Buddha land.

If this is the case, it can be assumed that every place where Nichiren suffers persecution is the Buddha land.

If it is so, every place where Nichiren meets a persecution will be the land of Buddha.

娑婆(しゃば)世界の中には日本国、日本国の中には相模(さがみ)の国、相模の国の中には片瀬(かたせ)、片瀬の中には(たつの)(くち)に日蓮が命をとどめをく事は法華経の御故なれば、寂光土(じゃっこうど)ともいうべきか。

Of all the places in the sahā world, it is at Tatsunokuchi in Katase of Sagami Province in Japan that Nichiren’s life dwells. Because he gave his life there for the sake of the Lotus Sutra, Tatsunokuchi deserves to be called the Land of Tranquil Light.

Tatsunokuti is in Katase, which is in Sagami Province, which in Japan, which is in this saha world. Since it is [where I laid down my life] for the sake of the Lotus Sutra. Tatsunokuti can be called the land of eternally tranquil light.

Japan in the saha world, Sagami country in Japan, Katase in Sagami country, Tatsunokuchi in Katase, are where Nichiren put his life. Because he gave his life there for the sake of the Lotus Sutra, Tatsunokuchi deserves to be called the land of tranquil light.

神力品に云く 「()しは林中に(おい)ても、若しは、園中に於ても、若しは山谷曠野(こうや)にても、是の中に乃至(ないし)(はつ)涅槃(ねはん)したまう」とは是か。

This is what the “Supernatural Powers” chapter means when it states, “Whether in a garden, a forest . . . or in mountain valleys or the wide wilderness . . . in such places have the Buddhas entered nirvana".

This might be what the chapter of "Supernatural powers" states; “Whether in a garden, a forest . . . or in mountain valleys or the wide wilderness . . . Buddha has entered nirvana on these places”.
