Founder of a Religion who Passed away like a Star – PART 1

I wrote a blog about a year ago like the following:

When I was making the spiritual reading, a holy spirit told me an interesting thing. It told me that when a fixed star, including the sun, shining in the night sky perishes, a human being was born into the World of Reality as part of the star. It is true that human beings have the Sun God in their hearts as Inner God. When a man who has succeeded in making his Inner God appear dies, a fixed star seems to explode and perish. Another great man will be born into this world again. When a great man dies, newspapers say “A great star falls,” which is what really happens. I asked the holy spirit if there is, and has been, such a great man in Japan in recent years. Then it replied that a few such men were in business world and unexpectedly named a certain religious leader who lived in Showa era.  It seems that a fixed star did perish when he died. I’ll explain this in detail in due time.

  • following 次の
  • fixed star 恒星
  • perish 死滅する
  • succeed 成功する
  • explode 爆発する
  • reply 答える
  • in due time   いずれ

Around 1900, some spiritually interesting persons were born all over the world as well as Japan. They were sent from another dimension so that they could make both good and bad impacts on human beings living in the 21st century. There was one religious leader among the gurus of new religions founded in Showa era, who miraculously passed away at the same time as the death of a fixed star. Most of them were dragged into hellish worlds after death, though.

  • as well as A Aだけでなく
  • dimension 次元
  • impact 影響
  • miraculously 奇跡的に
  • drag 引きずる

It was when I was a junior high school student that I first knew this religious leader. I came across his black-and-white picture at a bookstore. In the picture, he, a middle-aged man, was drawing something at a desk and at the same time I saw a fox, Inari-shin (稲荷神)belonging to the World of Gods, holding a writing brush between its teeth. Then I thought “What a strange man he is !”

  • come across A Aに出くわす
  • belong  属する
  • fox 狐
  • strange 奇妙な

He must have suffered mentally when he was young because he was spiritually too sensitive. He was born with too many attributes of Ubusuna-kami(産土神). An ordinary person would be mentally ill and live an unhappy life. He searched after truth because of his suffering. Most of the people whose spiritual bodies are stronger than their physical ones tend to be very physically weak and suffer severe illness except those whose souls are special.

  • suffer 苦しむ
  • mentally 精神的に
  • sensitive 敏感な
  • attribute 属性
  • ordinary 普通の
  • tend 傾向がる

Suffering mentally and physically, he joined a number of religious groups for help. When he was a member of Omoto-kyo(大本教), a religious sect founded in 1892 as an offshoot of Shinto, he was selected as an automatic writer who writes down what the spirit of Deguchi Onizaburo(出口旺仁三郎) says because he was a very suitable person or medium for the job.

  • a number of A 数多くのA
  • automatic 自動の
  • write down A Aを書き留める
  • suitable 適した

He experienced or see so many strange phenomena caused by spiritual possession that he strongly felt such weird things were unnecessary. Some of the believers went crazy because of necromancy and others were sent to the mental institutions, causing family breakdown. This kind of experiences made him found his own religious group later. If he knew the existence of modern religious groups that make money in the pyramid scheme, he would be sad worrying about where their souls go after they die.

To be continued.

  • phenomena 現象
  • possession 憑依
  • unnecessary 不必要な
  • necromancy 降霊術
  • breakdown 崩壊
  • existence 存在
  • pyramid scheme ネズミ講

Shrines and Temples Encouraging Visitors to Pray for Things Blaspheme their Enshrined Deities

During the times when the World of the Dead had great influence on society, such as Edo period, a lot of people doing business would often enshrined Inari-shin(稲荷神) at their shops or restaurants. Though Inari-shin is the god of agriculture originally, they used it for money making.

  • the World of the Dead 幽界
  • enshrine 祀る
  • agriculture 農業
  • originally 元々は

Inari-shin has a lot of minions called fox spirits, and some of them become corrupt and delinquent. They escape from their group, wander around the street, and possess pedestrians, making them drink alcohol to taste it or making them fall in love with someone to enjoy their love.

  • minion 子分
  • corrupt 堕落した
  • delinquent 不良の
  • wander ぶらつく
  • possess 憑依する

Once a fox spirit has enjoyed a man’s love affair, it gets tired of it and leaves the man, trying to possess another man. The moment the fox leaves the man’s body, he loses interest in his lover and breaks up with her. So if you’re in love, it’s important for you to make sure if you’re possessed with a spirit. Seeking your friends’ objective advice is good, of course, for as long as you’re possessed, all you can think about is your loved one. Your friends or parents may say to you “Why him?” or “What do you like about her?” You don’t need to accept everything they say, but try to listen to what they say.

  • once S+V 一旦SがVすると
  • get tired 倦きる
  • make sure 確かめる
  • objective 客観的な
  • as long as S+V SがVする間は

As you hold a memorial service for your ancestors with gratitude for being kept alive every day, you’ll come to be able to see the other person objectively and make right decisions.

  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • make a decision 判断を下す

Going back to the subject, as such bad fox spirits fool around, they become tired of hunting people. They begin to seek for places where they are offered food and shelter constantly. And they look on small shrines on streets or in shops as convenient for them and stay on there. But it often happens that another fox spirit has already occupied the place and fight each other for the place. Just as a murder sometimes takes place where a homeless man kills another over a place to sleep, the same kind of thing happens in the World of the Dead, too.

  • fool around 遊び回る
  • offer 提供する
  • constantly 継続的に
  • convenient 都合が良い
  • occupy 占領する

If you have a psychic power and visit a shop where Kami-fuda(神札), a kind of talisman, of Inari-shin is renewed every year and food is offered to it every day, you can find a fox spirit sent by its boss. Idle fox spirits are no match for such trained ones belonging to groups. They possess people walking by to make them buy things. The instant he leaves the shop, the fox spirit leaves the person. Later he wonders why he bought such an unnecessary thing.

  • renew 新しくする
  • idle 怠けた
  • be no match 敵わない
  • trained 訓練された
  • walk by 通り過ぎる
  • article 品物

The problem is that every time the shop owner gets help from the fox spirit, the boss of the fox spirit absorbs life energy from the owner’s family line. Family lines who use fox spirits to meet their selfish desires begin to go to ruin in three generations or so. If the shop owner understands the mechanism of the World of the Dead and begins to offer only magnetism of gratitude for being kept alive to his small shine, the fox spirit will turn into the righteous one. Once it becomes a righteous fox spirit, it tries to have contact with another boss in the higher dimension because its spiritual vibration cannot be attuned to that of its old greedy boss. Ultimately, all spiritual beings, good or bad, are connected to the Primordial Being.

  • every time S+V SがVするたびに
  • collect 回収する
  • family line 家系
  • meet 満たす
  • go to ruin 衰退する
  • generation 世代
  • righteous 正しい
  • attune 合わせる

Shrines and temples that encourage visitors to pray for deities so that they can fulfill their personal desires blaspheme their enshrined deities. You should know that it’s very dangerous to visit such shrines and temples to pray for things. Also, it’s more dangerous to visit a self-appointed psychic or a spiritual healer or guru who are in bent on gain and charge a lot of money for consultation. If you’re acquainted with such people, you’ll be induced to come to them again and again. That is, misfortunes will happen to you one after another, and you’ll end up asking them for help everytime. Getting acquainted with such villains causes you to suffer fatal handicap. They make their livings taking advantage of others’ misfortunes. You’d better swear never to meet such people again.

  • encourage A to~ Aに〜するよう奨励する
  • blaspheme 貶める
  • self-appointed 自称の
  • be in bent 熱心な
  • charge 請求する
  •  induce A to~ Aに〜するよう誘導する
  • misfortune 不運
  • suffer 被る
