Why do some religions pray toward a location?
In our religion, we pray toward Jiba because it is the “naru moto”, or where the instruments for creation was assembled. The Jiba, symbolizes the cause of why mankind was created, which is to lead a joyous life. This is why it is important to direct our prayer to this location; and why are minds must be in cohesion with the purity at the origin of Jiba, for God to accept our prayers. When our minds believe in this purpose of why we exist, God promises that our unselfish prayers will be answered.
For the people, who still are perplexed with this “origin”, just believe from your hearts that all mankind was created to lead a joyous life. Your sincere prayers will be answered. More to come on tomorrows blog!!
