Ofudesaki Part 15 is an outline of the 15th part of the Ofudesaki. This outline is based on what appears in Thoughts on a Thematic Outline of the Ofudesaki by the second Shinbashira Shozen Nakayama.

Part 15 was written in 1880.

Part 15: God is hastening the gathering of performers to complete the Service and teaching the cleansing of the heart. We strongly feel the urgency of the serious situation.
