Gosho 異体同心事 Having a Same Mind even if Different.

日本国の人人は多人なれども体同異心なれば諸事(じょう)ぜん事かたし、

 Though numerous, the Japanese will find it difficult to accomplish anything, because they are divided in spirit.

 Although there are many people in Japan, they will find it difficult to accomplish anything because of disunity.

 Although there are many people in Japan, they will find it difficult to accomplish anything because they have different minds each other even if they are same

日蓮が一類は異体同心なれば人人すくなく候へども大事を(じょう)じて・一定(いちじょう)法華経ひろまりなんと覚へ候、

 In contrast, although Nichiren and his followers are few, because they are different in body, but united in mind, they will definitely accomplish their great mission of widely propagating the Lotus Sutra.

 In contrast, I believe that despite their small numbers, if Nichiren and his followers have the spirit of many in body, one in mind, they certainly will accomplish their great purpose and the Lotus Sutra will spread.

  In contrast, though Nichiren and his followers are small numbers and are different each other, because they unite in same mind, I believe they will accomplish their great purpose and the Lotus Sutra will spread by all means.

悪は多けれども一善にかつ事なし、(たと)へば多くの火あつまれども一水には()ゑぬ、

 Though evils may be numerous, they cannot prevail over a single truth, just as many raging fires are quenched by a single shower of rain.

 No matter how numerous evils may be, they will never defeat the single truth. This can be compared to a stream of water extinguishing many raging fires.

 Though there is much evils, these cannot win to the single good action. For example, just as many fires gathering are quenched by a single water.

此の一門も又かくのごとし。 

 This principle also holds true with Nichiren and his followers.

 This is true of Nichiren and his followers.

 This is the case about Nichiren and his followers too.
