on guardian spirits

IMG_0159

Most of the guardian spirits are our ancestors after all. Just as parents are anxious about where their children are going, so it is our relieved ancestors who take good care of us.

  • guardian spirit 守護霊
  • ancestor 先祖
  • after all やはり
  • just as S+V ちょうどSがVするように
  • parent 親
  • be anxious about A Aについて心配する
  • relieved 安心した
  • take good care of A Aを十分に世話する

Though there is sometimes a case where other ancestors whose bloodline is other than yours become your guardian spirits, of course, they don’t take as good care of you as your ancestors.

  • case 場合
  • bloodline 血脈

Those who make efforts to hold memorial services for their ancestors, who were born into your family line and your precursors , can receive protection commensurate with your acts of holding the memorial services, in your lifetime.

  • make efforts 努力する
  • precursor 先輩
  • protection 保護
  • commensurate 見合った
  • lifetime  生涯

The more ancestors are in anguish, the more painful phenomena happen to their offsprings. But when you can make them rest in peace in the shortest and practically by holding memorial services based on gratitude, they turn your guardian spirits and repay you for your kindness.

  • be in anguish 苦悶している
  • painful 苦しい
  • phenomena 現象
  • offspring 子孫
  • rest in peace 成仏する
  • in the shortest 最短で
  • practically 実践的に
  • turn  変わる
  • repay 恩返しする
  • kindness 優しさ

The more ancestors you relieve , the more guardian spirits you have. It is only your ancestors who watch over you giving every possible help. There are no such cool, convenient guardian spirits as self-appointed psychics say in the world. God never cooperates on personal trifle things. It acts for the sake of many people, nations, and the earth. If it were to do it, it would be an unfair being, complicit in some personal profit. It is not God but a devil.

  • watch over A Aを見守る
  • giving every possible help 手取り足取り
  • such A as B BのようなA
  • convenient 都合のよい
  • self-appointed 自称の
  • psychic  霊能者
  • in the world 世間で
  • cooperate 協力する
  • personal 個人的な
  • trifle things 細事
  • for the sake of A Aのために
  • nation 国家
  • unfair 不公平な
  • being 存在
  • complicit in A Aに加担する
  • profit 利益

It has been said among ascetics that  “Gankake”(願掛け)means “to pray for something in exchange for eyes” or “to lack eyes.” Tradition has it that if you are always praying to God for your profit, you go blind.

  • ascetic 行者
  • in exchange for A Aを交換に
  • lack 欠く
  • Tradition has it that …  …という伝えが昔からある
  • be always ~ing いつも〜してばかりいる
  • go blind 視力を無くす

As long as you devote gratitude to everything, gods and humans, there is no problem. Only good things return to you.

  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • return  戻ってくる
