Ofudesaki chushaku

Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:73–4

Although the Ofudesaki’s story of the truth of origin uses the words “fish” and “serpent,” the creature names referring to the other instruments of creation, such as “turtle” and “orc,” do not occur in this Scripture. Instead, the Ofudesaki uses the corresponding sacred names to refer to those instruments. Thus the Ofudesaki speaks of putting “Kunisazuchi” into the “serpent” and “Tsukiyomi” into the “fish.” In the Story of Creation, God consumes such instruments as “turtle” and orc” to test the flavor of their minds. In contrast, neither the “fish” nor the “serpent” is depicted in this story as being consumed by God. It is into the “fish” and “serpent” that God would put those instruments.
