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
