PRAYER

Kanrodai at Ojiba

Purpose:

To ask God to help people understand the Original mind and the heart (soul), so they can purify their minds. When this happens, they will be spirited and attain the Joyous life.

OUR PRAYER (Joyous Service): Must be performed with a pure mind (Original mind/shinjitsu), void of greed, arrogance, and self love for God to answer our prayer. The prayer must be preceded by the spreading of the truth of the heart, Original mind and what God will do to help others understand God’s truths. This dissemination of God’s truth is called hinokishin. This prayer is also called the Kagura and Kanrodai Service, which includes the movements of the hands in expressing our sincere prayer to God.  The Prayer is directed to the Kanrodai (coordinates 34 Latitude, 135 Longitude) where mankind was first created; and where God and Oyasama are said to be to answer our prayers for world salvation.
