Tenrikyo - The Reason of Heaven


This universe is the body of God.

Ponder this in all matters.


Verse I _4

You are calling this place the Jiba, the Residence of God,
in Yamato, but you may not know the origin.

This seems to me to be a very personal verse. On can reflect on it or not. The tone of the verse does not seem to me to be critical so much as it is instructive. I feels to me like a parent encountering a child who has put on and tied their own shoes for the first time, only the shoes are on the wrong feet and the bows are knots.
