Ofudesaki chushaku

3:100 I, Oyagami, wish to fix the human term of life at one hundred and fifteen years.

*Note: When the Kanrodai is finished, people who partake the kanro (sweet dew) that falls from heaven will be able to live in this world until the fixed term of life and beyond according to their heart’s desire.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 46

一〇〇、親神の心としては、人間の定命を百十五歳と定めたいのである。  かんろだいが出来、転から降らして下さるかんろを頂いたならば、定命まで置いて下され、更に、それ以上心次第でいつまでもこの世に置いてもらえるのである。

Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no Dai: Foundation of the Path 33:52

“[M]arvelous salvation” will mean that the natural term of life will be fixed at 115 years. Everyone will then be able to live to be 115. God’s sole desire, according to verse 100, is to “fix the natural term of life at one hundred and fifteen years,” and this applies to all humans.
