A revelation on New Year’s Eve


Yeseterday, on December 30, I put my household shinto altar and Hassokudai(八足台), a small low table used with it,  in the center of the Japanese style room and cleaned them up, which is an annual regular event of our family.

  • altar 祭壇
  • annual 一年に一回の
  • regular 定期的な

I had cleaned the body of the altar with a new dried towel and a tissue every year, but this time I did it with a wet towel soaked in salt water and wrung well after a long time of not doing so. The altar looked very refreshed and looked like a recycled one. What I thought cleaning up the altar was that the act itself of cleaning up was a sacred present to a holy spirit. So, it is not good to do it chatting or watching TV.

It’s close to the end of the year 2007. I have been able to know a lot of people since I started writing this blog on May this year by order from an holy spirit. I haven’t seen any reader in fact, but I think I met them spiritually.

The year of 2008 will be the time of the beginning of The Kingdom of God, when “the traditional vertical rock door will begin to open, fall down to lie and open up to infinity (∞),” that is, it will be the year of  humans beginning to realize their Inner God in themselves.

  • The Kingdom of God 神の王国
  • vertical 縦の
  • rock door 岩戸
  • fall down 倒れる
  • lie 横になる
  • to infinity 無限に
  • that is  つまり
  • human 人間
  • realize 気がつく
  • Inner God 内在神

It occurs to my mind that the 20th year of the Heisei era(平成) is when 20(Huto) …Hutonorito(太祝詞)…Amaterasuohomikami(天照太御神) will get out of the rock door. And according to a revelation I got this morning at the end of the year, it is next year that the World of  Hakusan-shin(白山神),uniting and ruling all gods, begins to move.

  • occur to one’s mind 〜の心に思い浮かぶ
  • get out of A Aから外に出る
  • revelation 啓示

Hakusan-shin is not a single god but a manifestation of the Original Being that rules all gods on earth. Seeing a divine light pillar rising above the top of Mt.Hakusan, I can feel in it the original energy body which created all religions, including Taoism, Indian religions, Islam, and Christianity as well as Amaterasuohomikami and Susanoo(スサノオ).

  • not A but B  AではなくB
  • manifestation 顕現
  • original being 根源の存在
  • divine 神の
  • light pilllar 光の柱
  • energy body エネルギー体
  • create 創造する
  • including A Aを含めて
  • Taoism 道教
  • as well as A Aだけでなく

Here is an anecdote. About 1300 years ago, Taicho Daishi(泰澄太師) , who had perceived and been inspired by Hakusan-shin, and En no Gyoja (役行者),who was very famous for his occult powers, were call upon by The Imperial Court to prove whose imprecation is the stronger. En no Gyoja was the founder of Shugendo(修験道), Japanese mountain asceticism-shamanism, and his occult power was well known all over the country. But the result of the match showed that his occult power was no match for that of Taicho Daishi.

  • be famous for A Aで有名である
  • call upon A to~ Aに〜するよう呼び出す
  • The Imperial Court 朝廷
  • imprecation 呪詛
  • be no match for A Aに歯が立たない

En no Gyoja admitted his complete defeat honestly, and on jumping onto the back of a fiend he went back to Mt. Katsuragisan(葛城山) . And later, Taicho Daishi was appointed by the government as the priest of the spiritual protection of the state without precedent.

  • admit 認める
  • complete defeat 完敗
  • honestly 正直に
  • fiend 鬼
  • appoint 任命する
  • the spiritual protection of the state 鎮護国家
  • without precedent 前例のない

Taicho Daishi saw in Hakusan-shin the Eleven-faced Kannon Bosatsu(十一面観世音菩薩). It is not strange at all for him to see a Buddha in it because Hakusan-shin is the original energy body of all religions. This strong energy of Hakusan-shin is going to be projected onto the World of Reality. I’m looking forward to the next year. Thank you everyone for this year.
