Questions and answers (31)-(32)


Question 31:

What do you think of a strange orb, like a ball, in a picture? A friend of mine said orbs were not good. Is there a good orb or a bad one? Or both? Do I have to worry about an orb in a picture?

  • orb オーブ
  • picture 写真
  • have to~ 〜しなければいけない
  • worry 心配する


Many orbs are restless spiritual bodies at the place. Black and white orbs are the spiritual bodies who cannot rest in peace. There can be cases of taking a picture of energy bodies of gods. In such cases, the orb tends to have a geometric pattern and thin green color. If you have taken a picture with orbs in it, just put it in a white envelope, seal it, and throw it away with other garbage.

Question 32:

I didn’t notice that there is a sound of “n” between “Ze” and “On” of the words “Na Mu Kan Zen On Bo Sa Tsu  Nen Pa Kan Non Riki”(南無観世音菩薩 念波観音力).  Should there be “n” as you said ? I’m going to use the words only if I’m really in trouble.

  • notice 気がつく
  • be going to~ 〜するつもりだ
  • only if S+V SがVする場合だけ
  • be in trouble 困っている


Na Mu Kan Zen On Bo Sa Tsu = Extol the perfect (Kanzen, 完全) sound(On, 音, Kotodama,言霊)!

  • extol 讃える
  • perfect 完全な
  • sound 音

The words include this kind of meaning, so there should be the sound of “n”. Nen Pa(念波)has an image of the mercy of Kannon spreading. I’ve made up this way of reading sympathizing with the sun. The words calling for Kannon are a magic word,which brings out the heart inside yourself of wanting to be of any help to others. The words bring out Kannon out of your body. If you have a heart that you want to help people, you’ll be helped at the same time. It seems that as long as you want only yourself to be helped, you can never have the power of Kannon.
