Jirinden (14) When you are unable to convince others, cut open your stomach for your fault
「E nomikomasenu koto nareba, onore no ochido to shite sono seki de hara wo kirubeshi」 (Heishū Jirinden, Vol. I, Senbatsu iai myōmoku kayō no ben / Migi-zure Oshi-nuki)
”Since you are unable to convince others, you should cut open your stomach on the spot due to your faults.”
Migi-zure Oshi-nuki is when you are approached by your subordinates with some scheme to do something which one must not do. In this case you should convince your subordinates to abandon that plan, changing the wicked scheme towards a good direction. If the other party is unable to be convinced (to abandon their plans) it is because you cannot reach them and persuade them so you should cut open your stomach on the spot due to your faults.
If you are thought to be one who would be willing to participate in such a scheme, you must consider this a disgrace upon yourself and ask what sort of incorrect deed you have done and you should apologize to the other party.
