*Note: “Divine Record” (Koki) refers to the true teachings that will be transmitted to future generations to become the basis for the salvation for many people.

註 こふきとは、後の世までも語り伝えられて、多くの人々を救ける元となる真実の教という意。


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:52

The phrase “this path” refers to the “main path.” If people follow this main path, the “Divine Record...in Nihon” will come about. That is to say, the “Divine Record” for those who have understood God the Parent’s intention–the “Divine Record” referring to the instructions, or writings recording them, that should be handed down through endless generations as the foundation of single-hearted salvation–will come into being.
