This is about Oyasama and probably Kokan her daughter. Oyasama as a shrine of God, people prayed toward her physical location to pray to God. People had to go through Oyasama to access God. This may be similar to the Christian religion where they must go through Jesus, or and priest to access God. But today, the location of the Kanrodai is where we pray towards to receive God’s blessings. The people in the world now has access to God all the time. But remember, our minds must be pure (shinjitsu) before our prayers are accepted by God.
