About the Mongolia.  蒙古事

About the Mongolia.

August 6, 1280. Age:58.


All of you have been wondering whether the Mongols will attack again, but I believe that it is now imminent. Though the ruin of our country would be deplorable, if the invasion does not take place, the Japanese people will slander the Lotus Sutra more than ever, and all of them will fall into the hell of incessant suffering. Although the nation may be ruined by the strength of the Mongols, the slander of the correct teachings will weaken. For instance, that defeat is same as a moxibustion or an acupuncture. Though both are anguished at that time, these bring happiness later. Nichiren is the emissary of the Lotus Sutra; Japanese people look like King Mihirakula, who destructed Buddhism of the whole world. The Mongol empire looks like King Himatala, they seem to penalize hostiles of the votary of the Lotus Sutra as a messenger from heavens. Also, if the Japanese confess their sins now, they will look like King Ajatashatru, who became a follower of the Buddha, cured his white leprosy, and prolonged his life forty years; though he had no roots of faiths, he could reach the first stage of faiths by the power of Buddha, and he himself gained the realization that phenomena neither are born nor perish.

Very truly yours,

Nichiren.

August sixth.
