FAQ 3-4

Q3.

How long does it take for spiritual dirt to disappear? If I experience spiritual healing just once, does it become a sin which never disappears?

  • dirt 垢
  • disappear 消える
  • sin 罪

Answer.

As long as you hold memorial services for your ancestors with gratitude, remind yourself of gratitude in everyday lives, and keep away from any spiritual business, there’s no problem. You are in charge of  your inner god, too. Develop your conscience, and you’re OK. Also, to take a cup of tepid water with a tiny amount of sea salt in it many times a day would advance the purification of your physical body and spiritual one. You can change yourself mentally and physically as long as you live. This is a privilege of the World of Reality. In the other worlds, your state of the moment you die remains fixed.

Q4.

I decided to continue practicing memorial services for my ancestors even if I didn’t understand the reason well. It’s been a month since I started it. And I’m gonna carry it on. I had had gratitude for my ancestors before I started it, but the ritual with incense sticks doesn’t feel right somehow, and I always wonder if this is a right thing to do, or if I can truly make myself understood by the spirits. I cannot help feeling a little uneasy.

  • continue 続ける
  • even if S+V たとえSがVするとしても
  • ritual 儀式
  • incense stick 線香
  • wonder if S+V SはVするのかしらと思う
  • make oneself understood 自分のことを理解してもらう
  • cannot help ~ing 〜せざるをえない
  • a little uneasy 一抹の不安

Answer.

All you have to do is to offer incense sticks toward the Tanzaku(短冊, a kind of strip of paper)with gratitude in mind and leave the place. When you do it, you should use three incense sticks from the beginning. Your mind to try to help your ancestors, reversing at your subconsciousness, will help yourself after all. If you can continue the practice, it means your heart reaches your ancestral spirits. If not, you are sure to stop doing it. Believe what you’re doing.

  • from the begining 始めから

FAQ 1-2

Q1.

Was it planned a long, long time ago that in the hierarchy ranging from the World of Hell to the World of Gods, all the other worlds such as the World of the Dead and the World of Hell would be abolished and projected onto the World of Reality by a big change to come? Or was it decided during the past hundred years that because human beings couldn’t mend their ways, they’d have to pay the price? Or is God going to correct the system he himself created and reform it? In any case, I think I have to prepare myself for accepting the future.

  • hierarchy ヒエラルキー
  • range 範囲に及ぶ
  • abolish 廃止する
  • project 映す
  • mend one’s way 生き方を変える
  • pay the price 代償を払う
  • correct 正す
  • reform 改革する
  • in any case いずれにせよ
  • prepare 準備させる
  • accept 受け入れる

Answer.

It is not that God interferes one-sidedly and makes a judgement. Whether you tread the path to self-destruction, or whether you try to improve yourself mentally – the selection of human beings is under way automatically. In other words, automatic sorting to pick out souls who have aspiration and kindness has already been put in operation. The present time is the last stage of reincarnation, so it seems that a lot of chances have been given to each soul, which was decided many ages ago. This blog, Ise-hakusan Dou(伊勢白山道)is the very last warning and proclamation of it. Now that we’re living in the last stage, the problem is whether or not you can accept the warning genuinely and turn your mind to Inner God even 0.5 or 1 %.  In this period of time it is not need to be discussed whether you can believe it or not, because what I say is easily understandable to the souls who are ready for it.

  • interfere 干渉する
  • one-sidedly 一方的に
  • judgement 判断
  • tread the path 道を歩む
  • self-destruction 自滅
  • improve 改善する

  • now that S+V SがVする今
  • genuinely 素直に
  • argue 議論する
  • understandable 理解可能な
  • ready  準備ができている

Q2.

You said that spiritual beings whose attitude are similar to that of ours would come close and we living human beings are going to live with spirits or holy ones toward the world of Miroku(弥勒の世). Can we perceive the moment when those spirits come close to me? Like I have some mysterious experience or suddenly I find myself having a different way of thinking. Would I feel something is unusual? I cannot help but think that having found this blog itself is a kind of spiritual advance for me.

  • attitude 考え方
  • similar 似ている
  • perceive 知覚する
  • mysterious 神秘的な
  • experience 経験
  • unusual 普通の
  • cannot help but~ 〜せざるを得ない
  • advance 進歩

Answer.

The higher the level of a spiritual being, the more natural its assimilation, called a state of Kannagara(カンナガラ), or being with God. Righteous spirits don’t make you feel anything strange, while lower-level spirits make you feel something strange from the beginning. Many of you seem to be concerned about what spirits you’re possessed with. If you are so, just look at your usual way of thinking or favorites objectively. You may think that you’re possessed with a spirit whose way of thinking is similar to yours. You don’t have to worry about it, because once you do, it never ends. You’re OK as long as you can hold memorial services for the sake of your ancestors with gratitude in mind. If you do so, then spiritual beings who want to help others like you will come close to you, and you will be helped, too.

What My Pet Dog John Taught Me

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

When I was a high school student, my pet dog, a collie dog, died. His name was John. The hair of his body was black and that around his neck and of his paws was white. John had been kept at another home for the first year of his life, and the family who kept him couldn’t afford to keep him any more, so he was about to be killed at a public health center, when my mother found him and brought him home.

  • paw 足
  • afford to~ 〜する余裕がある
  • be about to~ 今にも〜するところだ
  • public health center 保健所

John had been kept in a cage for a long time since he was born and hadn’t been walked, so his legs were very weak. I was surprised to see a dog for the first time who lost in a short-distance running race with a man. But he was calm and very clever. He was trained easily and kept well to what I said. I still remember that he would often be taken out with my older brother every night for jogging and returned home tired, trailing himself.

  • cage 檻
  • weak 弱い
  • short-distance running race 短距離走
  • calm 穏やかな
  • clever 頭がいい
  • train 訓練する
  • keep to A Aを守る
  • trail 引きずる

Because of malnutrition and poor exercise during his childhood, I suppose, his paws were suddenly crippled one day. It happened when it was about ten years since he came to my house. His collar was already taken off because he stayed in bed all day.

  • because of A Aのために
  • malnutrition 栄養不足
  • crippled 不自由な
  • collar 首輪
  • take off A Aを外す
  • all day 一日中

One day, when I was washing our family car, I felt a sign of something behind my back. Looking back, I found John sitting at my foot. It was about ten meters from his dog house to where I stood. John seemed to have walked there trailing his legs. He was looking me in the eyes lying on his stomach. Then his breath became more and more rough gradually. And gazing at my eyes he closed his eyes just after stretching his paws. It happened only within a few minutes after I noticed him standing behind me.

  • sign 気配
  • turn around 振り返る
  • seem to have pp 〜したように思われる
  • lie on one’s stomach 腹ばいになる
  • breath 呼吸
  • gradually 徐々に
  • gaze じっと見る
  • stretch 延ばす
  • notice 気がつく

There was some dignity about him during the last few minutes. What I perceived instinctively then was that I must not look away from his eyes. Because it occurred to me that it was his greatest happiness and a blessing to be able to die making eye contact with a human being. Strange to say, I was calm with composure then. The atmosphere of the spot may have made me so. Seeing nothing then, I felt something great was coming for him.

  • dignity 威厳
  • perceive 知覚する
  • instinctively 本能的に
  • look away from A Aから目を逸らす
  • occur to A Aの頭に思い浮かぶ
  • blessing 祝福
  • with composure 落ち着いて
  • atmosphere 雰囲気

Many people lose consciousness and die alone in hospital without seeing anyone at the last moment. John was able to pass away when I happened to be outside of the house, but I felt something great guided us to the situation. No sooner had he closed his eyes than I went for my family. My families were surprised to find that he moved on his own and had tears in their eyes, saying that he must have moved his body trailing only his front paws. Seeing his last year, I suppose that he must have suffered from a lot of physical pains all over his body but he always stayed calm and looked as if he accepted the present situations as they were like a seeker for truth. His physical body were full of pains but I think he lived his life to his heart’s content.

  • consciousness 意識
  • pass away 亡くなる
  • happen to~ たまたま〜する
  • guide 導く
  • No sooner had S pp than S’+V’ Sが〜するやいなやS’はV’した

  • suffer from A Aに苦しむ
  • pain 痛み
  • as if S+V あたかもSがVするかのように
  • seeker 求道者
  • to one’s heart’s content 思う存分

Human beings take it for granted that they can live with enough food, clothing and shelter and suffer distress lamenting for their wishes never being realized. Men and dogs are both creatures living between heaven and earth. I hear that the power of Original God will make the present vertical society, called “the age of the outer god”, which  has existed for the past thousands of years, the true horizontal and egalitarian society. The new age is to begin when every living thing faces God one to one. Both humans and animals have something great in their heart. I’m gonna live with nothing to be ashamed of, like John.

  • take A for granted Aを当たり前に思う
  • suffer distress 悲嘆にくれる
  • creature 生き物
  • vertical 縦の
  • outer god 外在神
  • horizontal 横の

Mr. Obama and the Multi Layered Future

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

On today’s news show, a primary of the presidential election of the U.S. was being broadcast. It said that Mr.Obama, a black candidate, was fighting well against Ms. Hillary Clinton more than expected. Seeing a look of Ms. Clinton, I felt a little bit anxious, for women, driven into a corner, can go to extremes and make a dangerous decision due to their weakness.

  • primary 予備選
  • the presidential election 大統領選挙
  • broadcast 放送する
  • candidate 候補者
  • fight well 善戦する
  • feel anxious 不安になる
  • drive A into a corner Aを追い詰める
  • go to extremes 極端に走る
  • decison 決定
  • due to A Aのために
  • weakness 弱さ

As is clear from the history of America, Mr.Obama has to be careful not to be another Martin Luther King. If the worst case should happen, it would be regarded as a hate crime by a white supremacist and the truth would be suppressed. And after that, the U.S. would fall into a domestic conflict and a new candidate would stand for the presidential election and a re-election would be scheduled under the state of emergency. Then, the new candidate would win the election, whose initial name is… I’ve just dreamed about it.

  • regard  A as B AをBとみなされる
  • white supermacist 白人至上主義者
  • surpress 隠ぺいする
  • domestic 国内の
  • conflict 紛争
  • stand for A に出馬する
  • state of emergency 緊急事態

The person is a famous movie actor and has an experience of being a governor of a state. He and Ms. Clinton are both related to a certain common organization behind the scene. One would appear in the center stage of politics, and the other would be in the back stage. And by working in each stage in cooperation they would rule the U.S.

  • dream 夢想する
  • experience 経験
  • governer of a state 州知事
  • divide 分ける
  • rule 支配する

But if Mr.Obama accepts a demand from the underworld, the scenario will be changed. I hope the election will be held fairly so that the result will be otherwise. This is my fantasy. Writing like this becomes a factor of preventing its transcription into the World of Reality.

Mt.KuramaーA Secret of the Spiritual Dump Site

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

For more than a thousand years the capital of Japan had been Kyoto(京都), where the Imperial Palace existed. If a lot of people live in a small area, the energy of emotions of the human beings, such as joy, anger, grief and pleasure or scream and cry, is accumulated there. If concentrated, unsatisfied thought energy turns into an evil spirit or a ghost and is attracted to a person who gives off the same kind of vibration. This is what is called possession.

  • the Imperial Palace 御所
  • capital 首都
  • emotion 感情
  • joy 喜び
  • anger 怒り
  • grief 悲しみ
  • pleasure 喜び
  • scream 叫び

  • turn into A Aに変わる
  • evil spirit 物の怪
  • monstrous creature 妖怪
  • attract 引きつける
  • give off A   Aを放出する
  • vibration 波動
  • possession 憑依

Unsatisfied thought energy is produced due to many causes like sexual love or money trouble. I feel Heian period and Meiji period were the times evil spirits were especially active. The Imperial Court put up the spiritual barrier of Taoism around the capital Kyoto to keep it safe. There was always a person who slayed evil spirits in Kyoto in every period. Of all those people, ABE no Seimei(安倍晴明) and Kukai(空海)  stood out. The magico-religious rites and prayers of the esoteric Buddhism of Kukai were based on Taoism.

A lot of waste is produced every day at the place where a lot of people live as we know it. There is a municipal dump site in the rural area where I live. It is in the valley and people dump various garbage into it. I hear that when the dump site gets full, it will be covered with soil and made into a park. If children, several decades from now, should play with sand in the park and dig deeply in the sandpit, they might find curious articles and get excited. But there might be horrible industrial wastes or deadly poisonous things among those things. A child might take one of the dangerous things to home carefully and hide it under the bed. If poisonous gas should leak out from it, it might cause damage to the other family members and the neighbors as well as the child himself.

Well, ABE no Seimei and Kukai sent evil spirits they caught into a certain place in Kyoto and sealed it up. The place was like a prison for ghosts or a spiritual dump site. It was where negative thought energy of the people in Kyoto, which was a closed basin, gathered naturally because of the current of the magnetism of the earth. The people of those days felt the area to be gloomy somehow. So they came to call the mountain in the area “the Dark mountain” because it looked dark even in the day time. This is the spiritual derivation of the word Mt. Kurama(鞍馬山, the English word “dark” is pronounced as “kurai” in Japanese). It is located in the direction of Kimon(鬼門, the demon’s gate) , the northwesterly direction, of the center of Kyoto.

In recent years some visitors to Mt. Kurama who have never felt spiritual things before, digging up the dump site for ghosts, get excited saying something like “Oh, I can feel something! Feels great!!” This is because their skin is poisoned spiritually by touching the waste of the ghosts accumulated for more than a thousand years. Some ghosts are seized with sexual desire and others killed people for money. Being ignorant is really horrible. By the way, a gatekeeper stands at the dump site so that the waste won’t leak out. The gatekeeper, who is also an evil spirit, has been sent from the World of Hell(地獄界) by Purification God in order that he fights against other evil spirits in the dump site who try to get out of it. The form of the gatekeeper is that of a giant Tengu(天狗), a long nosed goblin.

What I have mentioned above is a relatively new event. It’s only about a thousand and several hundred years ago. In fact, the karma of this event was in the super ancient Japanese Archipelago. There was so mortal a combat as to change the from of the land between the extraterrestrials who eat human souls and the beings who nourish them. There are three spots in Japan where the former have been sealed up. One is Mt. Kurama(鞍馬山) and the second is Mt.Kurai(位山) in Gifu prefecture. Mt.Kurai is where evil spirits have been sealed up with the word Kurai implying “the Dark mountain.” And the third is a certain mountain where “balls are put.” There has been a custom in Japan since ancient times of worshiping an evil spirit who has been sealed up as a deity. So keep in mind that the idea of gaining some power by visiting a shrine or some place called a sacred place can be really dangerous.

On Kagamimochi

There seem to be many ways Kagamimochi(鏡餅), a round rice cake offered to a diety, is arranged on New Year’s Day depending on regions or households. This custom originated from a Shinto ritual, not a household, and came to be practiced among the folk. This custom is a deed for people to express gratitude to Sun God, Earth God and Sea God , enshrine them getting them together as one and “appreciate in advance” the favor they will receive from the three gods in the new year.

  • offer 捧げる
  • diety 神
  • region 地域
  • household 家庭
  • originate 始まる
  • practice 行う
  • the folk 一般の人々
  • deed 行為
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • appreciate ありがたく思う
  • in advance 事前に
  • favor 好意

It is a secret ritual leading to God to express gratitude for what has not been realized yet. You can understand it well if you think about relationships with other people. For example, if your child were always asking you for an expensive present every time he/she sees you, what would you think? Parents will make such a judgement considering the child’s life attitude in everyday life. What if your child always takes care of you and says appreciative words? You would feel like helping the child. In the same way, you don’t have to pray to God for your detailed wishes. All you have to do is express gratitude to God in your daily lives first. If you do so, all things that you need will be given.

  • detailed 細かい

During the first three days of the new year, shinto shrines all over Japan are crowded with people who try to use God, wishing “I want this! “, “I want you to achieve this!” Do you think God wants to be present at such a place? If you offer to God only gratitude for being kept alive, your thought leads to God much more effectively. God knows what you’re worrying about without your explaining it. And you, needless to say, don’t have to say your name or address to God. The very idea of trying to tell God about your problem in detail proves that you don’t believe in God. It is rude to the Almighty God.

An orange put on the top of Kagamimochi stands for Sun God. I feel it used to be a kaki, a Japanese persimmon, but it’s OK if you use an orange instead. Omochi(お餅) is what the favor of Mother earth is compressed into.  It also can be said to be what the holy energy of Amaterasuohomikami(天照太御神)is comressed into. It is better that the shape of mochi is round like a mirror. And you can’t miss Konbu kelp, which stands for the favor of sea and Sea God. If you prepare these three, you can make a great Kagamimochi, which represents the traits of the deities, and call the holy energy into your house.

The Essence of Aikido ― To change the air of the spot into your own magnetic field.

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

A woman who is a reader of this blog reported by mail that she won a gold medal in individual competitions of Tai Chi, a Chinese martial art. She said that she was fighting with gratitude to people who took care of her and when she was nervous she could calm down her emotions by repeating “I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te  A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su” in her mind. “I’ll try aikido next time,” she said.

  • individual competition 個人戦
  • Tai Chi 太極拳
  • nervous 緊張した
  • calm down A Aを落ち着かせる

She used to be far from strong physically and mentally. She went through difficult times when she was dependant on a spiritual being outside herself and she suffered from psychosomatic disorder( bulimia and vomiting) for many years.

  • far from A Aどころではない
  • physically 肉体的に
  • mentally 精神的に
  • go through A Aを経験する
  • dependent 依存した
  • psychosomatic disorder 心身症
  • bulimia 過食症
  • vomiting 嘔吐

To get some exercise is important for a person who is mentally weak and has a tendency toward depression. Women in this age might as well go to gym to keep fit mentally and physically than attend some womanly class. It is especially important that a woman over forty, conscious of her hormonal changes, make efforts to make her mind stable.

  • get exercise 運動をする
  • weak 弱い
  • tendency 傾向
  • depression 鬱
  • might as well~ 〜してもよいかもしれない
  • womanly 女性的な
  • effort 努力
  • conscious 意識して
  • stable 安定した

As for a person who has difficulty getting exercise, he/she should be conscious of it in daily lives, which changes the way of doing things and has a good effect on you. For example, when you’re standing, just to raise your heels a little becomes a good exercise.

  • as for A Aに関して言えば
  • have difficulty ~ing 〜するのに苦労する
  • raise 引き上げる
  • heel かかと

To be mentally stable, it is not enough to take exercise, of course. The best way to make your mind stable is a practice of holding a memorial service for your ancestors with gratitude in mind. The reader also said that she was able to win the gold medal because of a sense of security enhanced by the practice. She said she would want to learn Aikido next. Aikido is also a good way to develop Inner God.

  • memorial service 供養
  • ancestor 先祖
  • a sense of security 安心感
  • enhance 高める
  • Inner God 内在神

Speaking of aikido, Ueshiba Morihei(植芝盛平), the founder of aikido, has a lot of interesting episodes. Also it is significantly meaningful that he was associated with Deguchi Onizaburo(出口王仁三郎), a religionist, and Minakata Kumagusu(南方熊楠), a great scholor.

The soul of Ueshiba Morihei comes from the World of Fierce Gods(鬼神) leading to Susanoo. Many masters of martial arts belong to the World of Tengu(天狗), a spirit taking on a form of a long nosed goblin, but his soul is superior to them. I don’t know anything about Aikido, but what I perceive from Mr. Ueshiba is that the essence of aikido lies in the ability to control the spot. Before a battle begins face to face, the outcome seems to be already decisive. Once you cover the spot with magnetism your spiritual body emits, you can beat the opponent, however you fight, because the spot is yours.

In my spiritual vision, I can see him standing at the center of a circle of magnetic field with the radius of about three meters when he faces his opponent. I feel the magnetic field is flashing blue and red. If he makes such a magnetic field, even a gesture of seizing and flinging his adversary can make the opponent fall down without touching. This phenomenon is related to the state of Kannagara(カンナガラ), being with God, which is a kind of automatic drive, that you achieve when your Inner God develops. In such a state, you can avoid troubles unconsciously.

By the way, my left ear can catch the sound nobody in this world can hear. When I’m asleep, while the ear catches the sound in another world, my acute sense seems to catch the sound around my body at the same time. During a trip, I was woken up by the sound of a cockroach walking on the ceiling at 3 a.m. I couldn’t bear it. So I turned on the light and struck it down quickly with a rolled newspaper. It all happened in a moment, when my wife, sleeping next to me, was awoken by the light and was about to scold. She sometimes remembers it even now and tells her friends about it, saying “What a strange guy!” lol

Hidden True Role of Japan

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

Seeing  the history of modern age, I find that there have been several countries much more affluent than Japan including the U.S. But the U.S. , in particular, has invaded other countries or waged war to protect and sustain her affluence or to secure natural resources.

  • modern age 現代
  • affluent 豊かな
  • including A Aを含めて
  • the U.S. アメリカ
  • in partucular 特に
  • invade 侵攻する
  • sutain 維持する
  • secure 確保する
  • natural resources 天然資源

With all her wealth, the number of criminal cases has been increasing in the U.S. It seems that the affluence causes war and the crimes in the country. There seems to be no country whose people are satisfied materially and have high morality at the same time.

  • with all A Aにもかかわらず
  • cause 引き起こす
  • satisfied 満足している
  • high morality 高い道徳性
  • at the same time 同時に

The concept of the Japanese phrase, “Mottainai” was praised abroad recently. I heard that the concept is too hard to express concisely in other languages, and it takes a very long sentence to explain it. Seeing that this phrase was praised all over the world, any developed country knows the harmful effects of material civilization but they don’t know how to solve the problem.

  • concept 概念
  • praise 賞賛する
  • abroad 海外で
  • express 表現する
  • concisely 簡潔に
  • developed country 先進国
  • harmful effect 弊害
  • material civilization  物質文明
  • solve 解決する

The same kind of atrocious crimes have been increasing in Japan too just like she is following the other affluent countries of the world. Is Japan to follow them as it is? I don’t think so.

  • astocious 酷い
  • as it is そのまま

Though Japan is also an affluent country, there is a crucial difference compared with the others. The population of Japan is more than a hundred million and most of the people can enjoy essential utilities like water, electricity or gas and get education basically. And the economic disparity between the wealthy classes and the average people is very small in Japan compared with foreign countries. There seems to be a huge economic disparity in China and the U.S. more than the Japanese can imagine. The average income of the U.S. is not so large as we think.

  • crucial 決定的な
  • compared with A Aと比べて
  • population 人工
  • essential 基本的な
  • utility 公共設備
  • education 教育
  • economic disparity 経済格差
  • income 収入

The reason why Japan, the second (or third ?) biggest economic power in the world, can maintain the present situations is that there is an intention of God to achieve a certain aim, to have the inhabitants play some great role…

  • economic power 経済大国
  • maintain 維持する
  • intention 意図
  • achieve 成し遂げる
  • aim 目的
  • inhabitant 住民
  • role 役割

In the age when the earth was just born and was covered with lava and gas, there was a spiritual being bouncing and running about like solar corona trying to make the components of the surface of the earth as uniform as possible. This being stirred the surface of the earth. It looks like a blazing giant dragon. And this giant dragon stopped the activity and stood still, so that it was cooled and solidified― This is the Japanese Archipelago.

  • age 時代
  • cover 覆う
  • lava 溶岩
  • bounce 飛び跳ねる
  • run about 駆けずり回る
  • component 成分
  • surface 表面
  • uniform 均一
  • as ~ as possible 可能な限り〜
  • stir かき混ぜる
  • blazing 燃えている
  • giant dragon 巨龍
  • activity 活動
  • stand still 静止する
  • be solidified 固められる
  • the Japanese Archipelago 日本列島

Well, it seems that this giant dragon has awaken from a long, long sleep since the genesis of the earth and it wants the people on it to do some job. If the Savior appears, he is not an individual. It is Japan and her inhabitants that are the Savior. The important role to save the world has been prepared for Japan and her inhabitants by the World of Gods. What the role will be depends on whether or not we can wake up the natural spirits of the country. The words to wake up the gods of the land and her inhabitants are:

  • awake 目覚める
  • genesis 創世記
  • want A to~ Aに〜してほしいと思う
  • the Savior 救世主
  • depend on A Aしだいである
  • whether to~  ~するかどうか
  • natural spirit 精霊

What Yamata-no-orochi legend Means

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

I just gave psychic reading to the legend of Yamata-no-orochi(ヤマタノオロチ)appearing in Japanese myths. This story includes some incidents of different periods and can be interpreted differently. This time, I’ll write about the incident of about 3500 years ago, which is relatively new of all the incidents and the core of the whole story.

  • legend 伝説
  • myth 神話
  • incident 出来事
  • period 時代
  • intepret 解釈する
  • relatively 比較的
  • core 各
  • whole 全体の

Yamata-no-orochi doesn’t mean “a giant snake” but “Orochi of Yamataikoku,” historical Japanese state thought to have existed during the late Yayoi period. Yamataikoku was near Hakusan (白山)of the present time and later it moved to Nara(奈良). So the center of Yamataikoku was between Hukui (福井) and Ishikawa (石川) of the present time. Yama(=山, mountain) taikoku(=大国, big power)equals “the big power surrounded by mountains.”

  • giant snake 大蛇
  • state 国家
  • exist 存在する
  • the big power 大国
  • surround 囲む

After the Hakusan dynasty was assaulted by a foreign tribe, the people of the different tribe seem to have mixed with the Japanese and spread, with the lodgment area in Hokuriku region(北陸). From the Chinese continent, culture as well as the people flowed in Japan. Orochi refers to the people from China. Spiritually, it sounds like “the Orushie.” Later this Yamataikoku(ヤマタイコク) moved to the present Nara prefecture and became what is called Yamataikoku(邪馬台国).

  • dynasty 王朝
  • assault 急襲する
  • tribe 部族
  • spread 広がる
  • lodgment area 拠点
  • as well as A Aだけでなく
  • flow in A Aに流入する
  • refer to A Aを指している

Yamata-no-orochi means ” the Orushie people in Hakusan.” They came from the Chinese continent with iron swords and invaded toward Kyushu region(九州)taking the local Japanese prisoners. They were making an expedition from Hokuriku, a cold region, toward a warm region, when Susanoo(スサノオ), who is strongly related to the Hakusan dynasty, was born as a human in Izumo region(出雲)and avenged the descendants of the different tribe invading Japan. This is the true story of the legend of Yamatano-orochi. He, a god who took the form of a human, mounted a counterattack and destroyed the home ground of the different tribe in Hakusan. And he gave the dominion over Japan to a certain group who worshiped Amaterasuohomikami(天照太御神) and was connected to the Hebrews.

  • invade 侵略する

  • avenge 返り討ちにする
  • descendant 子孫
  • mount a counterattack 逆襲に出る
  • destroy 破壊する
  • dominion 支配権
  • worship 祭る
  • the Hebrews ユダヤ人

This incident is described in the scene of the myth where Susanoo dedicates Amano-murakumono-tsurugi sword(天叢雲剣 )to Amaterasuohomikmai. The reason why the different tibe is represented as a giant snake is that the Japanese abhorred them, that they came from the area of Hakusan where Kuzuryu River(九頭竜川)was(the Japanese looked on the river as a giant snake)and, what is more important, that they had tatara iron making method for making swords and the sight of red molten iron flowing was compared to the giant snake. It was the red hot iron which was represented as the giant snake with red eyes in the myth.

Deep Relation between the Stone of Koshin-zuka and Dragon God

新年の伊勢白山道さんの写真

Old streets of town which have been used since a long time ago are often lined with a lot of shops, convenience stores, and companies. Of these, there are some store buildings where a shop is often replaced with another or doesn’t flourish whatever they do. Such a place is often changed to a vacant lot and a sign saying ” For sale” is put up there. When I see it through my psychic vision, I find that such a place is often where a sacred stone called Koshin-zuka(庚申塚)was enshrined and worshiped.

  • be lined with A Aが並んでいる
  • replace 取って代わる
  • flourish 繁盛する
  • vacant lot 空き地
  • sign 看板
  • put up A Aを立てる
  • sacred 神聖な
  • worship 信仰する

Most of the Koshin-zuka have been moved from a roadside and thrown away since the Meiji period. The problem is that among those stones are the stones of sun worship which had been worshiped from time immemorial as Yorishiro(寄り代), a place or object where spirits stay at temporarily.

  • throw away A Aを捨てる
  • the Meiji period 明治時代
  • time immemorial  太古の昔
  • sun worship 太陽信仰

Affected by Taoism, the stone came to be named Koshin. And with a religious concept of Sanshichu(三尸虫), a worm living in the human body steming from Taoism, the stones of Koushi-zuka were worshiped all over Japan, during which time the stones of sun worhip were mixed together with them and made Koshin-zuka.

  • affect 影響する
  • Taoism 道教
  • religious concept 宗教的概念
  • stem from A Aに由来する
  • mix A together Aを混ぜる

The problem is the stone of sun worship used as Koshin-zuka generates a s powerful spiritual magnetic field. Most of the stones are natural stones with no words or pattern on it. In recent years, they have been thrown away together with normal stones. Many of the places where the stones were disposed of were away from mountains or towns, but because of recent housing land development, new houses have been built on the ground under which the stone is buried and some of the stones are now under lands for housing use. Misfortunes happens to the owner of the land where the stone is or used to be buried.

  • generate 生み出す
  • magnetic field 磁場
  • pattern 模様
  • in recent years 近年では
  • housing land 住宅地
  • development 開発
  • misfortune 不運
  • happen to A Aに起こる
  • owner 所有者

Many of the stones of sun worship have a dragon god within it. This is because dragon gods have been ordered to carry spiritual dirt which accumulates in the stone worshiped by people to another world. Dragon gods belonging to the World of Gods are much more faithful to thier mission than Hachiko, the faithful dog(忠犬ハチ公). They obey an order given even for a thousand years. Now is the age when dragon gods have returned to the World of Gods, but their will to protect the stones still remain. Someone must acquit the dragon gods of their duty so that they can leave the forgotten stones.

  • dragon god 龍神
  • order A to~ Aに〜するよう命じる
  • dirt 垢
  • accumulate 蓄積する
  • faithful 忠実な
  • mission 使命
  • obey 従う
  • remain  残る
  • acquit A of  B  AをBから解く
  • so that S+V SがVするように

To appease dragon gods and not to be affected by them, the landowners should hold a memorial service using three incense sticks every day with gratitude to their land. It depends on their karma whether they can do this or not. When we build a house, it is important to have a local Shinto priest hold Jichinsai(地鎮祭), the Shinto ceremony of purifying a buiding site, and to greet spiritual beings related to the land and announce the message of touching the ground. Whether you have a spiritual ability or not, it is important that you implement Jichinsai formally in the World of Reality. Troubles responsible for the land will be taken care of by the landowner, or the persons concerned, holding a memorial service or cleaning the land.

  • appease なだめる
  • memorial service 供養
  • incense stick 線香
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • depend on A Aしだいである
  • local 地元の
  • purify 浄化する
  • greet 挨拶する
  • annouce 告知する
  • ability 能力
  • implement 実行する
  • formally 形式的に
  • responsible 原因である

It is meaningless to pay a self-appointed psychic to perform an incantation at the land. Such conduct itself would enrage Kenzoku-shin(眷属神), an ancillary deity, of Kunitokotachi-ohkami(国常立太神) who rules the ground. People living there have to offer gratitude to the land every day on their own. If you hold a memorial service every day for your ancestors using Yorishiro(= a memorial tablet or Tanazaku(短冊), a kind of short strip of paper) and three incense sticks, the third one will take care of the spirts of the land.

  • pay A to~ お金を払ってAに〜してもらう
  • self-appointed 自称の
  • incantation まじない
  • conduct 行為
  • enrage 怒らせる
  • on one’s own 自分で
  • ancestor 先祖
