Third Edition

It should be good, if I call together instruments to add to them, and teach them My providence one by one.


It would be grand, if I assemble more instruments in order to gradually teach them My providence for this couple.

Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:73

The verse refers to equipping the “fish” and the “serpent” with instruments and teaching them the providence and workings of God the Parent in a step-by-step manner. After putting the “orc” into the “fish,” God, as Tsuki-sama (the Moon), would enter it. After putting the “turtle” into the “serpent,” God, as Hi-sama (the Sun), would enter it. God would then conceive humankind. The phrase “add instruments to them...step by step” refers to this aspect of creation.
