The Ohikari Receiving Ceremony (Ceremony for New Members) solemnly took place at the Su no Hikari Headquarters altar room on September 15. Kyoshu-sama’s successor, Masaaki-sama, was also present.

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

Next, Kyoshu-sama presented the Ohikari to the new members.

After Kyoshu-sama exited, President Narii gave a greeting. Then, all those present read aloud “Words of Prayer” and finally sang “Ieji” (Goin’ Home).
