Sixth edition note

1:10 From now on I, Oyagami, will teach you the hand movements of the Kagura Service and anticipate Service performers to assemble and perform it.
*Note: “Kagura Service” (Kagura-zutome) is a Service performed around the Kanrodai where ten dancers represent the ten aspects of the complete providence of Oyagami. Oyagami becomes spirited seeing our performance of the Kagura Service and through its performance we also pray for God’s workings for the salvation of humankind (済世救人).
The Kagura Service is also called the Service of the Kanrodai since it is where it is performed. It is also called the Joyous Service because it represents the truth of God and humankind becoming spirited. Further, it is called the Salvation Service because it is the Service for single-hearted salvation. (Refer to notes to 6:60, 10:25–7, and 15:52) The Kagura Service is not to be performed at any place other than the Jiba.

註 かぐらづとめとは、かぐらづとめでかんろうだいを中心にして、元初まりの十柱の神様の理をたたえて、十人の人々によって奉仕するおつとめであって、このおつとめによって親神様にお勇み頂き、済世救人のお働きをお願い申すのである。

このおつとめは又、場所の上からかんろだいのつとめとも、又、神人共に勇むという理の上からよふきづとめとも、又たすけ一条のつとめである上からたすけづとめとも仰せられている。(第六号三〇註、第十号二五 二七註及、第十五号五二註参照)このおつとめは、ぢば以外に於いては許されない。(「おさしづ」第三百九十一 三百九十二頁、第四百五頁参照。)
