A secret of three incense sticks.


The beginning of the universe was caused by three actions from one fundamental being coming into play. The law of these three actions has been working at the basis of everything from the whole universe to our daily lives. As a matter of course, you can find the three actions as God’s function in the basic doctrines or secret ceremonies of all the religions in the world.

  • cause 引き起こす
  • fundamental 根源的な

  • basis 基礎

◎ In Hinduism, it is said that Brahman, Vishnu, and Siva,  who are the main deiteis in the doctrine called Trimurti, were born from one God, yet they appear as three different deities.

  • Hinduism ヒンズー教
  • deity 神
  • yet にもかかわらず

◎ The doctrine of Trinity in Christianity. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are said to be three different beings born from one and only God.

  • the Holy Ghost 聖霊
  • be said to be~ 〜であると言われる
  • one and only 唯一の

◎ The faith called “Miwa faith” in Omiwa-jinja shrine(大神神社). It is a belief that all gods are menifestations of Miwa-myojin(三輪明神). The word Miwa means “three rings” in Japanese.

  • faith 信仰
  • manifestation 現れ

◎  The infinite proliferation of a male, a female, and a child.

  • infinate 無限の
  • prolification 増殖

◎ According to Gurdjieff, a Russian mystic, all the phenomena of the universe are manifestations of three forces―active force, passive force, and neutral force, which he called “The Law of Three.” He said that there was a shocking interference from God’s will when the three were born from the fundamental one.

  • mystic 神秘家
  • force 力
  • positive 能動的
  • passive 受動的な
  • neutral 中和的な
  • interference 干渉
  • will 意思

In “three are born from one” lies a secret of this world, the universe, and God. All and everything arose from this.

  • arise 生じる

What makes this possible is a certain “will.” So in doing something, to imitate and practice this model based on the will would bring about a similar phenomenon of development repeatedly. This is a secret of three incense sticks used in holding memorial services for ancestors.

  • a certain ある
  • imitate 真似る
  • model 型
  • based 基づいた
  • bring about A Aを引き起こす
  • repeatedly 繰り返し
  • secret 秘密
  • incense stick 線香

When you put three lighted incense sticks in an inverted trianglular shape(▽), seen from the opposite side(=spirits or another world), it looks like an triangular shape(△). These shapes form into a hexagram(六芒星). To practice this “model” would accumulate karma which produces “healing”, “rebirth”, and “resurrection.” This is beyond the bounds of reason.

  • lighted 火のついた
  • inverted 逆の
  • triangular 三角形の
  • opposite 逆の
  • form into A Aの形になる
  • hexagram 六芒星
  • accumulate 蓄積する
  • healing 癒やし
  • rebirth 再生
  • resurrection 復活
  • bound 境界
  • reason 理屈

There is a limit to a verbal explanation. It is not until you practice it for yourself that you can understand what I’m saying. It is sometimes very difficult to change a vicious circle into a virtuous one. You need some revolutionary detonator (The concept of happiness depends on the spirituality of each person).

  • limit 限界
  • verbal 言葉の
  • explanation 説明
  • It is not until S’+V’ that S+V S’がV’して初めてSはVする
  • for oneself 自分で
  • vicious circle 悪循環
  • revolutionary 革命的な
  • detonator 起爆剤
  • concept 概念
  • depend on A Aしだいである
  • spirituality 霊性

Most people proceed on their own way wondering which way to go, but many are likely to find late in life that they went a long way round. It’s waste of time that it takes you a huge amount of time to realize it.

  • most たいていの
  • proceed 進む
  • wonder 〜かなと思う
  • late in life 晩年に
  • go a long way round 回り道をする
  • waste 無駄
  • a huge amount of A 膨大なA
  • realize 気がつく

In this blog, I have published the surpass-oneself theory I’ve got through the long circle of transmigration of my soul. I have published it unilaterally only to those who have some karma related to me. It would be a real pleasure for me if you listen to your conscience and make a judgement.

  • publish 公開する
  • surpass-oneself 自己を超える
  • theory 論
  • circle of transmigration 輪廻
  • unilaterally 一方的に
  • related 関係した
  • pleasure 喜び
  • conscience 良心
  • judgement 判断

Well, the three lighted incense sticks will burn down worldly obsession, evil spirits and impurities, heal gods and make possible the rebirth and resurrection of yourself in this world. A cue word which starts this model is:

  • burn down A Aを焼きつくす
  • worldly 世俗的な
  • obsession 執着
  • evil spirit 邪霊
  • impurity 穢れ
  • cue word 合図の言葉

ways to the original god


After all, all religions and sects lead to the same Original God which produces the universe. For example, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa in India(1836-1886) practiced trying to know the truth.

  • religion 宗教
  • sect 宗派
  • lead to A Aに通じる
  • the same 同じ
  • produce 生み出す
  • universe 森羅万象
  • practice 実践する
  • try to~ 〜しようとする
  • truth 真実

He practiced the ascetic training in each sects of Hinduism and Islam, following each way from scratch. As he ascended in the ranks of each sects, he encountered sacred spirits from low to high level in order , and then he sympathized with the highest god of each sect.

  • ascetic training 修行
  • from scrach 始めから
  • ascend 上る
  • encounter  邂逅する
  • in order 順番に
  • sympathize 感応する

The Deity varied and had different features in each sect. What is surprising about him is that he tried to go beyond the encounter with the Deity. After he became unified with the Deity, what he felt was the same regardless of the sects. “Only the sea of love prevailed silently,” he expressed. This sea of love, which any religions lead to, is the Original God. It has no name.

  • the Deity 神
  • vary 様々である
  • feature 特徴
  • go beyond A Aの先に行く
  • become unified 一体化する
  • regardless of A Aに関係なく
  • prevail 広がる
  • silently 静かに
  • express 表現する

There are a lot routes reaching the top of the mountain where the Original God exists. The sceneries you see in the middle of your climbing are different according to the route you take. You must not blame one another just because the scenery is different, nor must you be caught up in the scenery. The top of the mountain is the same. But there are a shortcut and a longcut.

  • route ルート
  • exist 存在する
  • scenery 風景
  • according to A  Aに依って
  • must not~ 〜してはいけない
  • blame 非難する
  • one another お互いに
  • nor… また…でもない
  • be caught up in A Aに囚われる
  • shortcut 近道
  • longcut 遠回り

I think that the best shortcut is to have gratitude for the present situations you are put in with all troubles. If you remind yourself of gratitude for your life you are apt to take for granted, you will realize some important things and start climbing the mountain. We are left in trust with part of Original God in our hearts. Life can be said to be a journey for realizing this truth.

  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • present 現在の
  • situations 状況
  • with all A Aがあるにも関わらず
  • trouble 問題
  • remind A of B AにBを思い出させる
  • be apt to~ 〜しがちである
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前に思う
  • leave A in trust with B AにBを任せる
  • part 一部
