Whatever talk to a person is hinokishin
You simply sprinkle my fragrance around (about the heart and God’s workings).
Hitokoto hanashi wa hinokishin,
Nioi bakari o kakete oku.
If your mind is strong
No one will be able to stop you.
Fukai kokoro ga aru naraba,
Tare mo tomeru de nai hodoni
In the world, everyone’s mind, there is no one who does not
desire a field (place of prayer).
Mina sekai no kokoro ni wa,
Denji no iranu mono wa nai.
If there is a good field (location where we will plant the seeds), to everyone
Everyone will desire to have it.
Yoki ji ga araba ichiretsuni,
Tare mo hoshii de arogana.
It is the same with everyone
I too wish to have that land (refers to location where we do hinokishin).
Izure no kata mo Onaji koto.
Washi mo ano ji o motometai.
I do not compel you to do this or that.
That is dependent on each of your hearts (it is the heart that brings upon manifestations that forces one to act or not to act on the evil in the mind in order to purify the mind).
Murini dose to iwan de na.
Soko wa meimei no mune shidai.
By all means, the land is desired,
no matter what the price may be.
Nandemo denji ga hoshii kara,
Atae wa nanihodo iru totemo.
At the residence is God’s field,
Every seed will all sprout (hinokishin will come to fruit with new members with we pray toward Kanrodai).
Yashiki wa Kami no denji ya de,
Maitaru tane wa mina haeru.
Because, this is this world’s field
I too, firmly will plant the seeds (hinokishin of spreading God’s truth about soul and what work God will do).
Koko wa kono yo no denji nara,
Washi mo shikkari tane o mako.
This time, everyone has come to sow the seeds joyfully.
If the seeds are planted (hinokishin), these people will reap a rich
Harvest (new members) accompanied by the fertilizer (Joyous Service).
Kono tabi ichiretsuni,
Yokoso tane o maki ni kita.
Tane o maitaru sono kata wa
Koe o okazuni tsukuri tori.

Summary of Song 8: Where are the new members. God tells us it will not be done by ourselves; we need God’s help. We must purify our minds first by not acting on what sufferings or inconveniences the Soul brings forth. When we purify our minds, God will accept our prayers and bring new members to our places of worship.
