Secret of Mt. Hakusan – Part 1

森羅万象第6巻 表紙

I feel that Mt. Hakusan, a mysterious mountain, was the first land when the Japanese Archipelago appeared on the earth in ancient times. Finishing the formation of the surface of the earth, the holy energy of Oh-kunitokotachi-oh-kami(大国常立太神)seeked for a resting place and poured down on a point of where Mt. Hakusan is located now. From this point, the original land of Japan upheaved and began to extend. To my spiritual eyes, the form of the land at that time looks quite different from the present one.

  • the Japanese Archipelago 日本列島
  • upheave 隆起する
  • extend 拡大する

Mt. Hakusan rose up and the narrow land of Japan appeared with the mountain being the center, extending in the direction from the present Mainland China to Ise(伊勢), the opposite direction to the present one. I feel that Mt. Hakusan in those days was more than three times as high. Only the range of the mountain was almost the same. The prototype of the Japanese Archipelago was the land full of high mountains and was long sideways with the area between Ise and Mt.Hakusan, which I call Ise-Hakusan Line, being the center.

  • Mainland China 中国大陸
  • opposite 逆
  • range 範囲
  • prototype 原型
  • sideways 横に

One side of the land was almost connected to the Mainland China. In the course of continental drift, the narrow land gradually rotated to the right and became the present figure of the Japanese Archipelago. In the end, the form was fixed like the one of a huge dragon god, which is the vision I see when the energy body of Oh-kunitokotachi-oh-kami is moving.

The main enshrined deity of Mt. Hakusan, the origin of Japan, is Hakusan-kukuri-hime-oh-kami(白山ククリヒメ大神). A mysterious deity about which there are few explanations left in Kojiki(古事記), Nihon-shoki(日本書紀), ancient histories or biographical writings. This is because Amatsu-kami(天津神), who formed the present Japanese culture, concealed her true identity. But only the sound of the name of the deity was just barely revealed. “Kukuri” means “Kukuru”, or “binding” in Japanese. The deity even binds the other deities. “Hime” means “princess”,  “female” or “conceal” in Japanese. This enigma shows that the name of Kukuri-hime-kami doesn’t represent one deity.

  • biographical 伝記的な
  • true identity 正体
  • conceal 隠す
  • barely かろうじて
  • reveal 明らかにする
  • bind 括る
  • enigma 謎
  • represent 表す

It has a significant meaning in the present civilization that the main manifestation of the deity is a goddess, who can be said to be Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami(天照太御神). This is also obvious from the relationship between Mt. Hakusan and Taicho-Daishi(泰澄大師),  a great enlightened man who I feel had the strongest supernatural power in the Japanese history.

To be continued.
