Ofudesaki chushaku

4:21 This is day today not a time to be caught unawares, wondering about kind of path it is. Marvelous things will appear before your very eyes.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 57


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 34:43

The Ofudesaki asks people what they think the present path is about. The Scripture says that “marvelous things”–splendid, wonderful, and unheard-of things–will come into sight.
