Directionology is a Groundless Human-Made Divination

Konjin(金神, golden god): god of azimuth worshipped in Onmyo-dou(陰陽道), yin-yang philosophy or an occult divination system based on the Taoist theory, where it’s prohibited to go out or move in the direction toward the god, or to get married to a woman from the region in the direction. It is said that if this rule is broken, seven family members of the person are supposed to be killed by Konjin.  (From Kojien dectionary).

  • azimuth 方位
  • worship  崇拝する
  • divination 占い
  • prohibit 禁止する
  • region 地方

According to an ancient book of Onmyo-dou entitled Hakinaiden, Konjin, abominated and feared by people, is the spirit of Kotan-daiou(巨旦大王), who was destroyed by Gozu-Tennou(牛頭天王), the king of heaven with the head of a bull, and his dead body was cut to pieces. The direction of Konjin varies from year to year. Though some new religion asserts that Konjin of ushitora(丑寅), meaning “northeast,”  is the righteous god who was sealed up in Kimon(鬼門), the demon’s gate, and his true identity is Kunitokotachi-o-kami(国常立太神). It’s true that Kunitokotachi-o-kami is the highest rank of Konjin but the assertion that Konjin is the god of Kimon who controls azimuth is wrong. Konjin is too great a god to punish people who moved in the wrong direction.

When a person plans to build a new house on a land and the person or his contractor moves the soil of the land, bad things, including death, sometimes happen to the person like a curse. People in ancient times didn’t know the reason, so they associated such evils with azimuth and developed the divination system. Directionology, or azimuth divination, is nothing more than a groundless human-made divination. Many fortunetellers have been making a lot of money using this divination, though.

  • contractor 請負業者
  • associate A with B AをBと結びつけて考える
  • nothing more than A Aにすぎない
  • groundless 根拠のない
  • fortuneteller 占い師

Why then do bad things happen when people dig earth to build a house? This is because the land of Japan itself is the body of God. You don’t need to worry about azimuth direction. As long as you pay your respects to the land(=God)in any way before starting the construction, there’s no problem. Since there are a lot of Kenzoku-shin, part of God, living especially in Japan, it’s important that you pay your respects to the land in advance. If you’re not sure if respects were paid by the contractor to your land on which your house was built, just say in your mind “I’m grateful for being kept alive” every day, for I received these words from Kunitokotachi-o-kami residing in Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮). Kunitokotachi-o-kami is the Great Golden God, who controls the earth and life.

  • respect 尊敬の念
  • in any way 何らかの形で
  • construction 工事
  • especially 特に
  • in advance 前もって
  • reside 住む

The Great Golden God tells me that he will save those who try to live to the last without depending on others and abandoning themselves.  The way he saves people is different from person to person, but he will save such people in the true sense. On the other hand, he tells me that those are no longer necessary who try to ask outer gods, psychics or spiritual healers for help, not being able to believe themselves, and that such dependent people are the result of degradation of souls transmigrating over and over for a long, long time.

  • depend 頼る
  • abandon 見捨てる
  • sense 意味
  • no longer もはや〜ない
  • degradation 劣化
  • transmigrate 輪廻転生

You don’t need to feel fear to hear this. Is your body weak? It’s OK. Is your mind unstable? No problem. All you have to do is nourish yourself (= part of God or Inner God), never giving up yourself. To nourish yourself is to nourish the Great Golden God’s child.

  • fear  恐怖
  • unstable   不安定な
  • nourish 養育する

By the way, it’s true that Ultraman represents Golden God. It sounds like a joke, though. The producer of Ultraman was inspired by Konjin. The story is about battles against monsters from space. It is based on an aspect of the historical event that did happen in ancient times, which is also related with the secret of the emergence of humans. Ultraman has been gaining popularity again these days. This is a sign of the revival of the Great Golden God. I began to write this blog in the same period. You are going to see a very interesting world begin.

True Meaning of a Buddha’s Saying

81pvowlMOmL

“In heaven and on earth, no one is a match for me.” It is said that no sooner had Buddha been born than he walked seven steps in four directions and said this with his right hand pointing to the heaven and his left hand the earth.

  • direction 方向
  • point 指差す

I was surprise to read this explanation online. The translation is misleading because it gives a self-righteous impression and make the readers think that Buddha is so great a person that they can’t hold a candle to him. I feel that the true meaning of his words is quite different. What the words spiritually mean is the following:

  • explanation 説明
  • misleading 誤解を招く
  • impression 印象
  • hold a candle to A Aの足元にも及ばない

*”In heaven and earth” … this world or universe, including all human beings and substances, is

*”no one is a match for me” …only a part of the body of the one and only Primordial Being, to which all and everything is connected. Therefore, there is only one being in the universe.”

  • including 〜を含めて
  • substance 物質
  • primordial 原初の
  • therefore それゆえ

Each person is like a finger. All human beings join together at a palm. They can trace back to the upper part of a body along an arm. Seeing that Buddha’s left hand was pointing to the earth, human beings may be like fingers of a left hand.

  • palm 手のひら
  • trace back 遡る
  • seeing that …  …ということを考えると

Here’s an interesting thing. A right hand is on the opposite side of a left hand with a space between them. Then, what is the right hand? If you assume the fingers of your left hand to be human beings in the World of Reality, then you can regard those of your right hand as their spiritual bodies, which also join together at the palm of your right hand and can trace back to the upper part of your body. Your arms join together at the torso.

  • opposite 逆の
  • assume 仮定する
  • regard 見なす
  • torso 胴体

Speaking of “fingers,” I think of solar coronas. Coronas are born from the surface of the sun, extend in a lively way and fully stretch out. Then they begin to shrink and disappear into the surface of the sun. It’s like tentacles extend and shrink. Coronas, which are to disappear in the course of time, are just like people’s lives.

  • speaking of A Aと言えば
  • corona コロナ
  • extend 伸びる
  • stretch out 伸びきる
  • tentacle 触手

Every time I visit Izougu(伊雑宮)of Ise Grand Shrine, I perceive a spherical body that has coronas around it and the color of the sun. The coronas may represent all creatures living and dying forever. In Showa era, when the World of the Dead had much influence on this world, on visiting Izougu, I used to perceive a spiritual being who looked like a woman in twelve-layered ceremonial kimono or a mermaid. As the level of my spirituality got higher, I ceased to see a personal god, a spiritual being with the form of a human. After Heisei era began, I have perceived a spherical ball like a sun disc there.

  • every time S+V SがVする度に
  • spherical body 球体
  • represent 表す
  • mermaid 人魚
  • cease to~ 〜しなくなる
  • sun disc 日輪

Well, there are a lot of troubles and difficulties in this world. But remember that when you’re suffering, God is suffering, too. For you are part of the Primordial Being, or God. If your finger is cut deeply, your whole body feels the pain, too. Just as coronas disappear into the sun, all creatures are to go back to the matrix sooner or later. You have nothing to worry about. On the surface of the sun, or in this world, all you have to do is jump around and dance to your heart’s content.

  • suffer 苦しむ
  • matrix 発生源
  • to one’s heart’s content 思う存分

The Original Form of Shinto Remains in Ryukyu Shito in Okinawa

Yamatohime-no-mikoto(倭姫命), who managed to reach Ise carrying the Sun God Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami on her back, and Himiko(卑弥呼), who mastered occult magics and governed the country, and the supreme priest of shintoism were all women. In the modern Japan, only Ise Grand Shrine has barely inherited this tradition.

  • manage to~ 何とかして〜する
  • govern 支配する
  • supreme 最高の
  • barely かろうじて〜する
  • inherit 継承する

The modern shintoism, however, has a male-centered structure, where shrine maidens have a low rank and are forced to retire at young age. Since God’s will is going to have effects upon the World of Reality, bureaucratic shinto priests will go away.

  • structure 構造
  • shrine maiden 巫女
  • be forced to~ 〜せざるを得ない
  • effect 影響
  • bureaucratic 官僚的な

Mt. Asama(浅間山, 朝熊山)erupted and an earthquake occurred at Kumamoto around the same time before and after Setsubun Day, which was the sign from the holy spirit that God’s will would begin to prevail in the World of Reality. The eruption of Sakura Island was just an omen of the eruption of Mt. Aso(阿蘇山).

  • erupt 噴火する
  • earthquake 地震
  • prevail 広まる
  • omen 前兆

The chinese character “熊” came from China, meaning”bear,” and the word “bear” stood for “sacred” “God” “the origin” in ancient times. Mt. Asama in Ise was a holy mountain where the Sun God and Hakusan-Kukuri- Hime-kami(白山ククリヒメ神) were syncretized and enshrined. When Naiku (内宮)of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮) was founded, the most important place for Hakusan faith was concealed. There are only a few shrines in Mt. Asama now.

  • stand for A Aを表す
  • syncretize 集合させる
  • enshrine 祀る
  • faith 信仰
  • conceal 隠す

I feel the spiritual line between the sacred mountain Mt. Hakusan and Mt. Asama is the prototype of the super-ancient land of the Japanese Archipelago and still the lifeline of Japan and the earth. The restoration of spirituality of Mt. Asama is a key to the future.

  • prototype  原型
  • lifeline 生命線
  • restoration 回復
  • key 鍵

Unexpectedly, the original form of the women-centered structure of shintoism remains in Ryukyu shinto in Okinawa. In Ryukyu shinto, they worship the sun and the eastern direction. Female priests of Ryukyu shinto, called Noro, carry incense burners with them, which is the most important ritual article for them. The smoke of incense sticks has been thought to attract the sun God and and recognized as essential for being with god. The incense burners are called Konjin by Noro and regarded as god itself.

  • unexpecetedly 意外にも
  • direction 方向
  • incense burner 香炉
  • attract 引きつける
  • essential 不可欠な

I hear that, in the Ryukyu Kingdom period, tax collectors, when collecting taxes from the licensed quarters, counted the number of incense burners put by the kitchen range so that the number of prostitutes couldn’t be fudged. Incense burners were what men were not allowed to touch and all women had. All women had their own incense burners in those days.

  • tax 税金
  • licensed quarter 遊郭
  • kitchen range 竃
  • fudge 誤魔化す
  • allow 許す

In old houses in Okinawa, each of the houses used to have a lot of incense burners women who had married into the families brought. So the number of the incense burners in a house showed how many generations had lived there and how old the house was.

  • marry 結婚する
  • generation 世代

I feel it’s meaningful that the worship of the sun, the eastern direction and Konjin has existed in Okinawa where the original form of shintoism still remains. Konjin is another name of Kunitokotachi-o-kami(国常立太神). Asama and Konjin-the true shinto that has been hidden for centuries is about to wake up from Ise-Hakusan Dou.

A Secret of Arrangements of the Buildings of Ise Grand Shrine

81pvowlMOmL

While the Shikinen-sengu ritual of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮) takes place, ornaments and treasures offered to Kami, or God in shinto, are renewed. The locations of the storage places for these are a little bit strange. Normally, such treasures are kept in inconspicuous places, but these are kept in treasure houses called Touhou-den(東方殿)and Saihou-den(西方殿)standing both sides of the main building where Kami is enshrined.

  • take place 行われる
  • ornament 装飾物
  • inconspicuous 目立たない
  • enshrine 祀る

When you visit Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine and stand at the place where visitors are permitted to pray, you can see the main building behind the treasure houses. At Naiku of Ise Grand Shrine, on the other hand, the opposite arrangement is used. You see the main building in front and the treasure houses in back.

  • permit 許可する
  • opposite 逆の
  • arrengement 配置

Historians say:

☆ the main building symbolizes North Star

☆ the treasure houses symbolize the South Dipper Six Stars and the North Dipper Seven Stars each

The two types of arrangements symbolize celestial maps of the summer solstice and the winter solstice. In Taoism, the North Dipper Seven Stars are regarded as responsible for “death” while the South Dipper Six Stars “life.” Though I have no objection to it, I feel the arrangements have a more important spiritual meaning.

  • symbolize 象徴する
  • North Star 北極星
  • celestial 天体の
  • Taoism 道教
  • objection 異論

Why is the arrangement of the buildings different between Geku and Naiku? Seen from the above, the arrangement of the buildings of Geku is △, while that of Naiku is ▽. Overlap the two arrangements, and you’ll see a hexagram(✡️).

  • overlap 重ね合わせる
  • hexagram 六芒星

Every time I stand and pray in front of the main building of Geku, I feel intense holy energy, while, at Naiku, I feel more intense energy when I look at the main building at a distance from the back than from the front. At first, I wondered why it was so. I guessed that if I could stand right behind the main building of Naiku, which is prohibited though, I could feel much more intense holy energy.

  • every time S+V SがVする度に
  • intense 強烈な
  • guess  推測する

My psychic reading has reveal that the secret lies in the treasure houses. Treasures offered to Kami are great artcraft works carefully made with the best technique. So artcraft works can be said to be magnetic masses of craftsmen’s thought energy.

  • reveal 明らかにする
  • artcraft work 工芸品
  • magnetic  磁気の

Lacquer wares, for example, are made from trees and Japanese lacquer carefully selected on the premise that they are delivered to Ise Grand Shrine. Time and effort it takes to make an artwork are unimaginable. I hear that craftsmen of treasures dedicated to Ise Grand Shrine have to obey a lot of rules, such as looping the workplace with straw ropes, restricting the entrance to the workplace and so on.

  • lacquer ware 漆器
  • premise 前提
  • unimaginable 想像できない
  • obey 従う
  • restrict 制限する

Artcraft works made with the best craftsmanship like this are positive magnetic masses. So treasure houses containing such artcraft works are like big storage batteries. And I feel these batteries begin to run down in twenty years. This is why the treasure houses, together with other buildings, have to be renewed every twenty years.

  • contain 中に含む
  • storage battery 蓄電器
  • this is why S+V こういうわけでSはVする

The reason why I feel a strong holy energy at Geku is that the treasure houses between visitors and the main building amplify the spiritual energy emitted from the main building. Ise Grand Shine can be said to be a rare religious facility that has been built with practical, spiritual secret arts. My theory is the effective period of the spiritual magnetism is one of the reasons why Shikinen-sengu ritual has to be held every two decades.

Ise Grand Shrine was Established Guided by Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami

Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮) has an important traditional ritual called Shikinen-Sengu(式年遷宮), where the old main building in one site is tore down and Kami, or “God” in Japaneseis transferred to a new one built in the other site every two decades. In this ritual, new ornaments and treasures are offered to Kami.

式年

  • ritual 儀式
  • tear down A Aを取り壊す
  • transfer 移す
  • decade 10年
  • ornament 装飾品

It has been discussed since a long time ago why this ritual takes place every two decades. There are a lot of theories about this, but I think it should be accepted as it is as a divine will because it has been held in this way since ancient times. The base of shinto is sun worship, and therefore shinto rituals are based on the movement and features of the sun.

  • discuss 議論する
  • take place 行われる
  • theory 説
  • divine 神の
  • ancient 古代の
  • worship 崇拝

For example, when the main building of Ise Grand Shrine is switched to the new one on the right site,

  1. The new main building being built on the right site means “The sun is born and rises as the morning sun.”
  2. The main building being torn down in twenty years means “The sun sets as the evening sun.”
  3. A new building being built on the left site again means “The sun is born in another world, or a foreign country.”
  4. The main building on the left site being torn down in twenty years and a new one being built on the right site mean “The sun turns the morning sun and is born in the original country. “
  • site 用地
  • rise 昇る
  • original 元々の

I feel that forty years it takes to perform the Sengu ritual twice is equivalent to twenty four hours of the sun movement. It can also be said that one day in the World of Gods is equivalent to forty years in the World of Reality. So, if you stay in the World of Gods for two days and come back to this World of Reality, you’ll be an old man or women over eighty years old. The left site of Ise Grand Shrine symbolizes the World of Reality and the physical body, while the right one the World of Gods and the spiritual body.

  • equivalent 同等の
  • symbolize 象徴する
  • physical body 肉体
  • spiritual body 霊体

This meaningful, mysterious ritual was started by Emperor Temmu(天武天皇), a very interesting person. Ooamano-ouji(大海人皇子), his former name,  who was a younger brother of Emperor Tenchi(天智天皇), raised a rebellion called Jinshin War(壬申の乱)over the problem of Imperial succession, defeated Ootomono-ouji(大友皇子), a son of his older brother, and named himself Emperor Temmu. This karma of the Imperial family has been passed on to this day, like Emperor Kammu(桓武天皇)drove his younger brother Sawara-shinnou(早良親王) to his death.

  • Emperor 天皇
  • rebellion 反乱
  • succession 継承
  • defeat 打ち負かす
  • the Imperial family 皇室
  • pass on A  Aを伝える
  • drive A to one’s death Aを死に追いやる

Taking a look at Emperor Temmu with my psychic power, I find that he was under the influence of Taoism introduced from the continent of China. Before Jinshin War, he left the Imperial Family temporarily to become a priest and went to Yoshino region of Nara prefecture, where he experienced Shugendo(修験道)and shinto rituals performed in Ise and Kumano regions. Since the former Emperor was interested in the dispatch of troops to Korean Peninsula, he had a strong connection with foreigners who mastered Taoism. It was Emperor Temmu, who mastered Taoism and Shugendo, that established rules for Shikinen-Sengu of Ise Grand Shrine.

  • Taoism 道教
  • introduce 伝える
  • temporarily 一時的に
  • region 地方
  • dispatch 派遣
  • peninsula 半島

It was only 2000 years ago that Yamato-hime-no-mikoto(倭姫命), inspired by the eighth level entity of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami(天照太御神), visited Ise and established Naiku(内宮) of Ise Grand Shirne there. Holy stone pillars had been brought to Ise from a spiritual mountain Mt. Hakusan in ancient times. According to my inspirations,

*A holy stone pillar, which contains a breath of the Primordial God, exists at Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shine.

*Another holy stone pillar, which contains the tenth level entity of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami, the Sun God, exists at Izougu(伊雑雑宮), whose official name is Izawa-no-miya.

伊雑宮2

  • holy 神聖な
  • contain 含む
  • breath 息吹
  • primordial 原初の
  • official 公式の

I feel that there has been an indigenous faith worshipping the stone pillar at the two areas since before Yamato-hime-no-mikoto visited Ise. During the period of Shikinen-Sengu, the local people gather white pebbles to put around the main building of Ise Grand Shine, which is a remnant of the historical fact. The reason why Yamato-hime-no-mikoto came to Ise seems to me that the eighth level entity of the Sun God was attracted to her mother, the tenth level entity of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami, at Izougu.

  • indigenous 土着の
  • faith 信仰
  • gather 集める
  • pebble 小石

In Japan exists Kuni-tama(国魂), the spritual entitity of the mixture of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami and Kuni-to-ko-tachi-o-kami(国常立大太神). Guided by Kuni-tama, a lot of family lines, persons or souls have been summoned to this country to rule it.

Secret of North Star

%ef%bc%97%e5%b7%bb

Though I’ve been writing about North Star many times since I began to write this blog in May 2007, I have avoided referring to its color as a big secret. However, I think it’s time to write about it.

  • avoid 避ける
  • refer to A Aに言及する

Every time I visit Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮), I perceive it to be the sacred place where North Star and North Dipper Seven Stars have been worshipped. At Geku can you see Ameno-minaka-nushi-no-kami (天之御中主神), or Ohkuni-tokotachi-oh-kami(大国常立常太神)in the form of North Star of the present century. Geku is where the spiritual vibration that produces life and keeps them alive is pouring down.

  • every time S+V SがVする度に
  • perceive 知覚する
  • sacred 神聖な
  • worship  崇拝する
  • pour down 降り注ぐ

So when I visit Geku, I get visions of North Star and North Dipper Seven Stars in my mind. The color of the star corresponding to North Star is different from those of the other stars, which are shining white. North Star is light greenish blue or Paris green.

  • therefore それゆえ
  • correspond 相当する
  • greeninsh 緑がかった

The companion star of North Star, or Alcor, is also light greenish blue.  I feel it’s related to the world after death. That is, North Star produces life, while Alcor controls death. There is a mechanism in the universe that pairs of yin and yang produce and develop everything.

  • companion star 伴星
  • related 関係している
  • yin  陰
  • yan 陽

It takes a long time for stars to become North Star by turns. I feel that a star coming in the center of the universe changes its color from white to light greenish blue. When North Star changes, the land of the earth that receives the energy from North Star is also changed. In Japan, as of present, it’s the region situated between Ise and Mt.Hakusan(白山). With the change of North Star, the region where the light of creation pours down changes. Nara, Kyoto, Izumo used to be a place like that.

  • by turns 代わる代わる
  • as of present 現在では
  • region 地方

Ancient civilizations in foreign countries also developed on the lands that received the energy of North Star. As North Star changes, nations and regions where civilizations rise change. The movement and replacement of North Star means the change of the universe that the Fundamental Being expresses.

  • civilization 文明
  • rise 興隆する
  • movement 動き
  • replacement 置き換え

The color of North Star is not visible with an astronomical telescope.It’s the image in my mind. It’s interesting that a lot of buried properties in ancient times have the same color. Ancient people must’ve thought of North Star as the center of the universe, too. I feel that they regarded the color, which they saw spiritually, as the one showing nobleness and tried to expresse it on articles.

  • astronomical telescope 天体望遠鏡
  • buried property 埋葬品
  • nobleness 高貴さ
  • article 品物

The idea of worshipping North Star and its color traces back to Taoism in ancient China. I can feel even now that Taoism had a strong influence on Ise Grand Shrine in the age of Emperor Temmu(天武天皇). The soul of Lao-tzu(老子), who is the founder of Taoism and has been worshipped as God in China, came from North Star at that time.

  • trace back to A Aに遡る
  • Taioism 道教
  • worship 崇拝する

I want to name the nine stars “North Dipper Nine Stars” :North Star, North Dipper Seven Stars and Alcor. These nine stars represents the whole universe and the universe in microcosm. They have practical effects on the earth and societies.

  • name A B AをBと名付ける
  • represent 表す
  • microcosm 縮図
  • practical 実際的な

And it is Hakusan-Kukuri-hime-oh-kami(白山ククリヒメ大神) who controls North Dipper Nine Stars. The name is not just a name for one goddess. It also shows both a state of other gods being controlled by her and children of the future, for all human beings have gods inside. There are a lot of gods on this planet, aren’t there?

Total Amount of Feel-Good Chemicals in the Brain is Fixed

Reportedly, drug problems have begun to spread even among high school students. Some assert on the Internet that marijuana is harmless, but it’s not true. I feel that, though smoking marijuana for a short period of time appears to be harmless to your body at first, it does affect you a lot when you are in your forties and over.  You will suffer from psychotic disorder such as depression. The longer you smoke, the more miserable your life will be in old age. Many drug users will commit suicide.

  • reportedly 報道によると
  • spread 広がる
  • harmless 無害の
  • affect 影響する
  • psychotic disorder 精神障害
  • miserable 悲惨は

I think that many of the people who have been to India for the purpose of practicing meditation have smoked marijuana. Based on the mysterious experience there, such as oneness with the universe, many of them have become teachers of meditation in Japan. Meditation under the instruction of such teachers must lead to an unbalanced mental condition of ego-swelling. Since many of such teachers are possessed with evil spirits, their students will also suffer from mental illness in later years.

  • for the purpose of A Aの目的で
  • meidation 瞑想
  • instruction 指導
  • nothing but A  A以外の何物でもない
  • possess 憑依する

Stimuli of the ingredients of drugs like marijuana promote the temporal secretion of feel-good chemicals in the brain, which cause an uplifting feeling or mysterious experiences. I think the total amount of feel-good chemicals the brain secretes is fixed, or in other words limited. If the chemicals, which should be secreted when people experiences many things in life, are consumed in large amount in a short period of time by using drugs, they will run out in and after middle years. Therefore, drug users won’t be able to enjoy themselves in later years whatever they do. They’ll have lost a sense of joy.

  • stimuli 刺激
  • ingredient 成分
  • secretion 分泌
  • uplifting 高揚の
  • consume 消費する
  • run out なくなる

Delectation caused by drugs is nothing more than physical pleasure. On the other hand, the sense of security caused by the manifestation of your Inner God is pleasure of soul. This is infinite and inexhaustible. You can feel the pleasure for ever. Marijuana should be for God. Hemp is a sacred plant whose counterpart exists in the World of Gods. In ancient shinto, it was indispensable as Yorishiro(寄り代), a kind of medium where the holy spirit stays temporarily. Kami-fuda(神札), a kind of talisman, of Ise Grand Shrine is called Jingu-taima(神宮大麻), or Jingu marijuana. The name shows exactly “Kami-fuda of marijuana” including the idea of  “Yorishiro for God.”

  • delectation 快楽
  • security 安心
  • menifestation 顕現
  • infinite 無限の
  • hemp 麻
  • sacred 神聖な
  • indispensable 不可欠な

Also, hemp that has been cultivated in Japan since ancient times has little narcotic effect substance causing illusion and it has been used not for pleasure but as medicine. Clothes, bed sheets and towels made of hemp are very good. They can keep away spiritual dirt and get rid of static electricity and spiritual magnetism of your body. I feel, however, that hemp fiber that has been distributed these days has no longer good effects that hemp should have.
