Somethings to Ponder
How effective is our sazuke? From a personal experience, of people performing it, I find that it is not effective. But I hear stories of how it has healed people from serious illness. In the past, the salvation of people who doctors have given up on, have increased the religion’s membership. Some may ask, why is the sazuke not effective today?
In the Ofudesaki, the iki or breath is said to have healed people. This salvation service is not available today. I believe that the sazuke is a substitute for this now. The following is from the Ofudesaki:
Hereafter, however serious an illness there may be,
the breath and the hand dance, all will be saved 12-50
Does this mean that we must perform two special services for a person to be saved? The teodori is the Joyous Service we perform everyday, asking God to save others we have spread God’s truth to. The iki or sazuke is a prayer administered directly to to sick person asking God to heal someone. What Service do we perform first?
The daily Service or teodori, we are asking God to sweep the minds of people we have already spread the truth to. These are the truth of the Original mind, heart/soul, and the working of God. These workings are illness as guidance to help the people understand what their hearts do to purify their minds. These people by understanding the teachings will come to our places or worship to be healed by the sazuke, and will further be informed of the teachings.
Does this mean that the people that we have not spread the teachings will not be healed by performing the sazuke? We need to first convey God’s teaching first, before we perform the sazuke. This is paramount that they understand the teachings of the Original pure mind and their own heart/soul. With their understanding, we can perform the sazuke if they request.
The healing of the body is not the primary goal of the sazuke. It is the eventual purification of their minds that is most important. With the attainment of the Original pure mind, only joy will come from their own hearts/souls. This is the the message we need to spread to the world. With our special sevices of the teodori and the sazuke, we have the instruments to save the world.
The Question therefore should be, why does the prayer not work?
YOU ARE NOT PERFORMING THE JOYOUS SERVICE DAILY.
YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE TEACHING OF THE ORIGINAL PURE MIND AND THE HEART.
YOU MAY NOT HAVE A PURE MIND YOURSELF.
YOU HAVE NOT INFORMED THE PERSON OF GOD’S TRUTH FIRST.
THE PERSON DOES NOT UNDERSTAND GOD’S TEACHINGS
Remember the sole purpose of our Services is to facilitate the sweeping of evil thoughts from others, so that their own hearts bring joy in their lives.
Pure mind Results in a Happy Life
