"On Persecutions Befalling the Buddha"

(Shonin gonan ji)

Each one of you must summon up the spirit of the lion king and never cower to those who may threaten you in any way. The lion king is never intimidated by even a hundred beasts, and the same is true of its cubs. [Those who slander] are like howling jackals, while the followers of Nichiren are like roaring lions.

(Gosho, p. 1397)

聖人御難事

各々師子王の心を取り出だして、いかに人をど(嚇)すともを(怖)づる事なかれ。師子王は百獣にを(怖)ぢず、師子の子又かくのごとし。彼等は野干(やかん)のほ(吠)うるなり、日蓮が一門は師子の吼ゆるなり。(御書 1397頁) 

聖人御難事 

當各奮起師子王之心,他人如何威脅亦勿畏懼。師子王不畏百獸,師子之子亦復如是。彼等為野干之吠,日蓮一門乃師子吼也。 (御書 1397頁)
