Summary of chapter 2
After the mind is made pure, the Joyous Service will follow
The Joyous Service brings new members (crops) to our churches.
Message to the early followers to Prepare the Residence(church) where the truth is conveyed.
God will like to work in the “High Mountains” with our prayer; but he cannot due to the Kanrodai or the location of the original mind has not been located.
If the early followers ponder, and purify their minds, they hasten the location of the Kanrodai.
The early followers need to purify their minds. When this happens, God will bring new members to the residence (church) when the Joyous Service is performed.
God will place illness (fire and water) in distinguishing the minds of people near us when we perform the Joyous Service. These people will come to the church.
We must direct our prayer (Joyous Service) toward the Kanrodai for God to accept our sincere prayer. This specific location not yet located due to the impurity of the early followers.
