Some of you may disagree with me, but I believe that the first two chapters of the Ofudesaki summarize all the teachings, and prophesy of God. I will give you a couple of examples. The first two chapters differ from the rest of the Ofudesaki in that they were both written in 1869. Chapter 3 is not written until 1874, which is a delta of about 5 years. The early two chapters predict the physical demise of Oyasama and her daughter Kokan (see image). In verse, 1-61 of the Ofudesaki, the word parent refers to Oyasama who wanted to continue to train Kokan. The following is from the Ofudesaki and the Life of Oyasama.
This child, 2 years, 3 years, you wish to train,
You are saying. But God has detached. 1-60
Ponder, the parent how much she may desire,
God’s detachment, this will not come true. 1-61
On September 27, Kokan passed away for rebirth at the age of 39. On being notified, Oyasama returned to the Residence by rickshaw. She went straight to her bedside, stroking her lifeless body and said, “What a pity! Come back soon.”
