OFUDESAKI 9-26

Interpretation:
Oyasama was the first parent of human beings. God created the first parents from components of both heaven and earth. From earth, the instruments (sea creatures) existing in the muddy ancient ocean, and from heaven, the pure original mind of God. This is why understanding the Origin of human beings is important. We must all return to the Original mind that was given to the first parents.

Interpretation:
When people realize what God is doing, they will be able to sweep their hearts by themselves. What is God showing us? God lets us see our ominous future, by showing us what fates will appear if we act on these negative thoughts we have in our minds. God shows us our future fates. People will understand that what we sow, we will reap. By this understanding we can sweep our minds of evil thoughts, preventing fate from accumulating in our hearts. When this happens, only joy will come from our hearts.

THE OFUDESAKI, SCRIPTURE OF PROPHECIES

This translation differs from Tenrikyo Church Headquarters. Please compare both translation in determing God’s message to the early followers of Oyasama. The Ofudesaki is translated by many as the tip of the writing brush, but it can also be translated as the writing brush of the future. There are many prophecies that are in the Ofudesaki, the most important is the one that says when everyone’s mind in the world becomes purified (shinjitsu), the Kanrodai or Central Pillar will be erected, bringing upon the Joyous life for the world. For more insights on the Ofudesaki, please join or view the Tenrikyo Ofudesaki Study Group on Facebook.
