The Ohikari Receiving Ceremony solemnly took place at the Zuiun-kyo Sacred Grounds Su no Hikari Kyodan Headquarters altar room on July 21.

After Kyoshu-sama offered the Opening Prayer to God, everyone prayed the Amatsu Norito under his lead. Next, everyone sang Meishu-sama’s hymns and heard the teaching, “Words of Light.”

Then, Kyoshu-sama presented the Ohikari to those who newly became members.

After Kyoshu-sama exited the altar room, Rev. Narii, President of Su no Hikari Kyodan, gave a greeting, and then, all the attendees read aloud “Words of Prayer” and sang “Ieji” (Goin’ Home).

Members, who newly received the Ohikari, accepted into their hearts “to be born anew as a true child of God, a Messiah” following in the footsteps of Meishu-sama, and determined to serve in the divine work of true salvation revealed by Meishu-sama, made a new start.
