註 もとなるをやとは、おやさまをお指しになっている。おやさまは、親神様のやしろとして、親神様の理を受け、人間創造の理によって教をお創め下された。

Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2010)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 38:44

The core of what God will reveal at this time turns out to be “the Parent of Origin.” The Scripture is saying: “I shall make any and all things fully known to all people without discrimination. In particular, I want to tell them about the Parent of Origin,” referring to God the Parent, who created humankind and the world.
