OFUDESAKI 31

Interpretation:
I believe this verse is talking about the path of Oyasama, and the completion of her efforts to bring upon salvation of everyone. This completion date was upon her physical death in 1887. This date was foretold in the Ofudesaki, and predicted to bring upon the workings of God to save mankind.
