The Last Religious Precepts by Nikko (2). 日興遺誡置文二


14. In the case of the priest like "One's body is insignificant, the Law is heavy", even if he was the Buddhist priest of the ignobleness, you must respect him by the reason of "Showing him the same respect you would do Buddha."

15. Even if he is a lowly person, in the case of a Buddhist priest of propagating the Law, you should think him to be an old priest with virtue.

16. Even if he was the person of the ignobleness, you should respect him who is superior in wisdom than you and treat him as a teacher.

17. If he differed from Law of Buddha and established a willful doctrine even if he was chief priest of that times, you must not adopt this.

18. If Law of Buddha has a difference even if it was a resolve of large number of people, the chief priest must defeat this.

19. Must not make the color of the canonical robe black with a sumi.

20. You must not wear a robe which seamed top and bottom.

21. Must not be at the seat same as the slandering Law. Fear complicity.

22. Must not receive offering from a person slandering Law.

23. I permit this for the Law protection of Buddha about the swords and sticks. But you will not have to hold it at the time of going out. In the case of the populace, should permit this perhaps.

24. Even if it is a young bonze, you must not seat him below the followers of the high rank.

25. My behavior must be like a holy Buddhist monk like the previous teacher. But, in the case of a chief priest or a person of learning, you must put them as a believer even if they associated with a woman by mistake.

26. Admire a votary of "being skillful in the answer to difficult question" as like the previous teacher did.

The precepts that I wrote up are an outline like this. I put 26 clauses for the protection of ten thousand years. A disciple who learns this in the future should not have doubt purposely. If there is a person even violating one of these, he is not a disciple of Nikko. I leave clauses that I determined in this way.

On 13th day of January of the 3rd year of the Genko era (1333).
