Question 24:

There are many truant students these days, aren’t there? My daughter, who is an elementary school student,  also refused to go to school and now goes to the school nurse’s office instead of classroom. We were both torn by conflict never experienced before. What do you think of the relationship of parent and child or school problems these days?

Food problems lie behind the mental problems of children recently as a physical factor. Food contaminated with pesticide chemical and preservatives and stopping eating rice make their mind weak and destroy their ability to concentrate.

It is effective for childrens’ health to eat a lot of rice for breakfast and eat dinner early in the evening. Atopic children tend to have a mental weakness and get irritated easily. They should abstain from meat and think much of eating rice and breakfast. On top of it, if parents can put into practice holding memorial services for their ancestors, spiritual problems are improved and their children turn strong and steady.

Question 25:

When my child gets a little bit unstable in school, he seems to calm down again by touching a rabbit. We keep a hamster in my house and he cherishes it. How are children healed by contact with animals?

  • a little bit 少し
  • unstable 不安定な
  • calm down 落ち着く
  • cherish 大事にする
  • contact 接触


It seems that animals absorb negative spiritual magnetism of humans such as irritation. The same thing holds true of fur. A holy man in modern India and a Zen priest named Ikkyu(一休)used a carpet made from a hide of a tiger habitually. It is because the carpet absorbs unnecessary magnetism and they could concentrate on meditation. I never recommend you use fur skin, but it is true that animals can discharge magnetism of irritation like an earth wire.
