(Hito no) (kokoro to yu) (mono wa)
(chotoni wakaran) (mono naru zo)
The person’s mind, it is said,
easily will not understand, will become.
Fushigina tasuke o shite iredo,
araware deru no ga ima hajime.
Miraculous salvation I have been doing.
Revealing myself, is now beginning.
Mizu no naka naru kono doro,
hayaku idashite moraitai.
Within the water, this mud
quickly to take it out, I want.
Yoku ni kiri nai doromizu ya,
kokoro sumikire gokuraku ya.
Greed, there is no benefit, like muddy water.
When the mind is settled, then comes paradise.
Itsuitsu mademo kono koto wa
hanashi no tane ni naru hodoni.
Forever this matter,
this talk , seed of stories it will become.
Mugoi kotoba o dashitaru mo,
hayaku tasuke o isogu kara.
Though I have spoken such severe words,
to quickly save you, because I hasten it.
(Nangi suru) (nomo kokoro kara) 5-7 waka
(wagami urami de) (aru hodoni) 7-5
Suffering that is done originates from the mind,
