Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no Dai: Foundation of the Path 33:41

God is working to hasten the setting up of the Kanrodai. To allow that to occur, God works as “the broom” to sweep clean the depths of everyone’s mind throughout the world. As verse 52 says, “Throughout the world, God is the broom for the sweeping of the innermost heart.” We are told to watch carefully as God sweeps the innermost heart of everyone in the world acting as the broom.
