About the words ” I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su“, is there any difference in meaning between “I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te” and ” I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da Ki” ?
- difference 違い
Yes. There is a big difference as you think. ” I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da Ki” is the past tense, meaning “we were kept alive.” Since we are now being kept alive, we should use the present tense ” I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te” , including consciousness of both the present and the future into Kotodama（言霊）, the word spirit.
The word spirit has another meaning of the number spirit（数霊）.
“I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te” =9 words
“A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su” =10 words
These words include the meaning of the holy spirit like the following;
The number spirit of 9 words: Kunitokotachiohokami（国常立太神）
The number spirit of 10 words: Amaterasuohomikami（天照太御神）
The number stands for the level of gods.
” I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te（9 words) A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su（10 words)” equals the level of the Original God. The words occured to me over and over again when I visited Geku（外宮）of Ise Grand Shrine（伊勢神宮）.
The notion of the word spirit is that words create a reality. The 19 words of reminding you of gratitude has great power of creation, which can regenerate and revive all and everything.
