Ofudesaki chushaku

2:39 When the remarkable Kanrodai—which reveals God’s providence at the creation of the world and humankind—is built and the Service of the Kanrodai is performed, Oyagami’s true intention will spread to nihon and to the world, allowing all humankind to become spirited and live the Joyous Life.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 26


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 32:54

The world “marvelous” here connotes “unheard-of.” The Kanrodai — which is to be set up at Jiba, the place of the “world’s beginning” — will bring a settling to Nihon. This settling, moreover, will not be restricted to Nihon — those who understand God’s intention — but will also enlighten and bring understanding to Kara and eventually to Tenjiku, thus leading to a settling that will encompass all humankind.
