Gosho 清澄寺大衆中 Letter to the Public of Seichoji Temple

真言経と申すは()(ぜん)(ごん)(きょう)の内の華厳(けごん)般若(はんにゃ)にも劣れるを、

In reality, the True Word sutras belong to the provisional teachings preached before the Lotus Sutra and are inferior even to the Flower Garland or the Wisdom sutras.

In reality the Shingon sutras belong to the provisional teachings preached before the Lotus Sutra and are inferior even to the Flower Garland or the Hannya sutras.

()(かく)弘法(こうぼう)これに迷惑して(あるい)は法華経に同じ、或は勝れたりなんど申して、仏を開眼(かいげん)するにも仏眼大日の印・真言をもつて開眼(かいげん)供養(くよう)するゆへに、日本国の木画(もくえ)の諸像(みな)無魂(むこん)無眼(むげん)の者となりぬ。

結句(けっく)は天魔入り(かわ)つて檀那(だんな)をほろぼす仏像となりぬ。

As a result, all the wooden Buddha statue and portrait of Buddha in Japan were rendered soulless and sightless, and in consequence, these were superseded by the heavens' devils and the Buddha statues had brought destruction upon worshipers.

王法の()きんとするこれなり。

This is why the imperial court [in Kyoto] is about to perish.

This is reason why the imperial government [of Kyoto] is about to exterminate.

()の悪真言かまくらに(きた)りて又日本国をほろぼさんとす。

Now the evil teaching of the True Word school has made its appearance in Kamakura and threatens to destroy all of Japan.

In addition, this wicked Shingon has come in Kamakura and is about to annihilate Japan.
