『歎異抄』部分英訳 From Tanisho, Buddhist text book by Shinran


“Each of you have passed the borders of tens of countries, never cared of your own life, you came over. That is to ask and hear the way to the heaven without pain. Thus, if you consider that I know any other particular way besides praying with spell, if you are longing for any words and law, that is all mistake. If you think that way, there are many scholars near the capital, you should meet and ask them. For Shinran, just praying to Amida to be saved, that is what I heard from good man, there is no other way beside believing. Praying with spell, whether it is the way to heaven or is it the way to hell, I don’t know, in sum total. Even if my teacher Hounen lied to me and I go to hell by praying with spell, I should not regret it. The reason is that if I were a person who worked hard with other ways besides praying and come to the perfect knowledge, then I could regret by going to hell by praying with spell. But for me, every way to paradise is not possible, so I surely stay in hell. …”(From Tanisho, Buddhist text book by Shinran.)
