English-Japanese Gosho Cross-Reference

Sorted in page order of "Major Writings of Nichiren Daishonin" volumes 1-7 (older translations)

This document indicates the page numbers for the English-language and Japanese-language versions of the writings of Nichiren Daishonin (J. Gosho). Not all the 'Japanese' Gosho are available in English at this time.

The English translations were republished in one volume in 1999 as "The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin" (abbreviated as WND). Prior to this, they had been available in seven separate volumes, entitled "The Major Writings of Nichiren Daishonin" (abbreviated as MW). There are many modifications to the translations in the new book; most notably the more extensive and consistent use of English for names and terminology.

Each Gosho title below is linked to the full text of the former Gosho translation at the Amafrosho Website.
