Do you have a translation question?

封ずる

Postby ShounenSuki » Thu 12.01.2005 11:27 am

I'm trying to translate something, but I came across a word I can't seem to find the meaning of.
Can anyone tell me what 封ずる means? It looks similar to 封じる (to seal), so it probably means the same, but I'd like to be certain ^^

The entire sentance is 「四象の循環により邪を封ずる封印式」

Thanks in advance ^^

To quote entire sentence helps us.;)

As you say 封ずる is similar to 封じる. It is a literary language from Classical Japanese.

In this case 「封ずる」is described below
「閉じ込める。特に、陰陽道や仏法の加持力によって、物の怪けなどが自由に動けないようにする。」
Now you may understand what is 封ずる with using the great WWWJDIC.
I guess 封ずる (ふうずる) might be close to “shut away” “confine” or something like that.
Did you find this sentence in 陰陽 game?

Same word 封ずる is pronounced ほうずる(historical term) when its means “ enfeoff” if that helps.
ほう・ずる【封ずる】動詞}{文章語}君主が臣下に領地を与える。 

訂正等あればどなたか補足をお願いします。
