Memorial service for your ancestors leads to the Original God


I have recommended that we hold memorial services for our ancestors, making gratitude the key to them. As you begin to devote gratitude to our close ancestors first, your mind will begin to broaden gradually and then the range of your gratitude reaching ancestors will be broader and deeper.

  • recommend 勧める
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • key 鍵
  • devote 捧げる
  • broad 広い
  • range 範囲

If you keep on doing, you will come to sympathize with various deities and Buddhas naturally, though you won’t notice it. Originally, humans, spirits of ancestors and all gods have separated and derived from the Original God. Everything is working together.

  • keep on ~ing 〜し続ける
  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • sympathize 感応する
  • various 様々な
  • deities and Buddhas 神仏
  • notice 気がつかない
  • separate 分かれる
  • derive 派生する
  • work together 連動する

People tend to be eager to worship God directly. This is because they think of God as having power and good. Conversely, what if God were beings doing you harm like restless spirits ? Would you worship God all the same ?

  • tend to~ 〜する傾向がある
  • be eager to~ しきりに〜したがる
  • worship 崇拝する
  • directly 直接的に
  • think of A as B AをBであると考える
  • conversely 逆に
  • What if S+V ? SがVしたらどうするのだろうか?
  • do A harm Aに害を与える
  • restless 迷える
  • all the same それでもやはり

I would. For I don’t do it on profit-and-loss arithmetic. It is no use worshipping God eagerly with you leaving your poor restless ancestors alone. God won’t help those who make advances toward him ignoring the less fortunate.

  • profit-and-loss arithmetic 損得勘定
  • It is no use ~ing 〜してみても無駄だ
  • eagerly 熱心に
  • leave A alone Aを放っておく
  • poor 可哀想な
  • make advance 近寄る
  • ignore 無視する
  • the less fortunate 恵まれない人々

Devoting “I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te  A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su-Thank you so much for keeping me/us alive-leads to the Original God. Holding memorial services doesn’t mean just trying to relieve your own ancestors in a narrow sense. It results in relieving the whole human race, beginning with your ancestors.

  • lead to A Aに通じる
  • mean  意味する
  • relieve 安心させる
  • in a ~ sense 〜な意味で
  • result in ~ing 〜するということになる
  • whole 全体の
  • human race 人類

Tracing back your ancestors takes you to the Original God. When I see a person who was born in Japan with my clairvoyance power and trace back his indwelling god, I see Amaterasuohomikami(天照太御神)after all. The same thing is true of people with a foreign nationality who were born in Japan. You will never fail to see Amaterasuohomikami, tracing back your ancestors. Holding a memorial service for your ancestors is an act of worshiping the Original God as well. If you put it into practice for yourself, you’ll experience things in your own way and see what I mean.

  • trace A back Aを遡る
  • clairvoyace power 霊視
  • indwelling 内在する
  • after all 結局は
  • be true of A Aに当てはまる
  • nationality 国籍
  • never fail to~ 必ず〜する
  • as well  もまた
  • put A into practice Aを実行する
  • for oneself 自分で
  • in one’s own way 自分のやり方で

Today too,



Thank you so much for keeping us alive.
