We have disobeyed you!
Though you allowed us to serve in the work of Johrei
That belonged to God,
We made it our own, human practice!
How arrogant we were!
We compared the power of Johrei
Saying whose was strong and whose was weak.
We were measuring the power of God!
You channel Johrei to us without a moment’s rest –
To all that exists within us!
After you were born anew,
You showed us that
The true essence of Johrei is sonen!
How wonderful yet fearful it is!
You, O God, exist in our breathing and sonen!
Sonen is God.
God is Light.
Come, says Meishu-sama –
He says, come to the Light!
I tell you followers of Meishu-sama.
The true Johrei is this:
To surrender your sonen to God
And serve in His divine work!
O gracious God!
You forgive our sins
And purify us with Your love, always.
For You wish to live with us in Your heaven!
Why did you leave us with the word purification?
It is for us to trust in the true salvation of God
And respond to His profound grace!
