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