Ofudesaki chushaku

Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:74

God would draw forth the instruments that represent the principles of God’s providence that are called Kumoyomi, Kashikone, Otonobe, and Taishokuten. In terms of the sacred names used in the Ofudesaki to refer to the ten aspects of God’s providence, Izanagi and Izanami appear first. Then verses 37 and 38 present Kunisazuchi, Tsukiyomi, Kumoyomi, Kashikone, Otonobe, and Taishokuten. So far, eight out of the ten sacred names have appeared in the Ofudesaki. Yet the two most important names, Kunitokotachi and Omotari, do not appear until Part XVI. Nonetheless, given verse 30–which says, “Among the ten performers of this Service, there are those who take the role of the Parent of the beginnings of origin,” meaning that the Service performers include those who receive the truth of God the Parent–it could be said that the Ofudesaki has already mentioned all the ten aspects of God’s providence to which the ten performers correspond; namely, Tsukihi (Moon-Sun) or God the Parent as well as the eight instruments. Yet the sacred names referring to Tsukihi have yet to be revealed.
