Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:49

Part V, as I said, does not contain the word “Service,” yet I believe that the phrase “the performers” ultimately refers to the Service performers. The foundation of the broad path is the Service. God will not say where the performers necessary for the broad path can be found. However, they will all come to this Residence of their own accord after disorders of the body are shown or manifested.
