Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 32:50

II:15 We are told that if we are “sincere in desiring this path to be” – the word “path” referring to the path that begins at Jiba and extends throughout the world via the “places where God’s truth is conveyed” – then we should "ponder over everything from [our] innermost heart," that is, ponder deeply in the depths of our mind.
