Handbook for TEN-DAN Managers@
All stars belong to solar system move around their centerc sun.
NIJUU HAS-SHUKU (*1) carry constellations around their centerc
pole-star, and the earth turn round on its centerc SHU-MI (*2). KI (*3)
flow round on one point of physical centerc GEN-KAN (*4).
And people as well SHO-TEN SHIN-SEI (*5) work around theircenterc
RAUM. No activities of TEN-DOU work without each center.
If you wish you had TEN-DOU always in your mind, you should
regard that the TEN-MEI c Command or Mission of the Heaven c
originated from RAUM and as the representative of 18th Messiah
YUMI-NAGA SOc our Teacherc the RYOU-DOU RI-JI KAI has been
(*1) NIJUU HAS-SHUKU: Twenty eight esignsf where specified guardian Gods
of RI-TEN enshrined
(*2) SHU-MI: Legend has it that there has been a holy mountain in the center
of the earth God knows either where is it and since when it has been there.
(*3) KI: Wave motion or energy as the origin of material, which fill everywhere
in the Macrocosm.
(*4) GEN-KAN: Sacred spot of body where soul stay to control physical being.
(*5) SHO-TEN SHIN-SEI: A general term of Gods in RI-TEN.
2. There is RAUM at the center
for activity of both SO-SHI (*1) and
ON-SHI (*2) and the great Mission of Heaven is executing on the
center of ON-SHI, so that there is no TEN-DOU without Center.
Therefore you should know the Center of TEN-DOU must be
RYOU-DOU RI-JI KAI.
(*1) SO-SHI: MI-ROKU BO-SATSU. Teacher of Our Teacher YUMI-NAGA.
(*2) ON-SHI: Our Teacher. This is the translation word for word.
3. The Center of organization
of TEN-DOU is the SOU-TEN-DAN and
its management center, that is, the board of directors is RYOU-DOU
RI-JI KAI, which controls local mission bases and fasten their unity.
There would be no progress in TEN-DOU without Center.
The management of Center is the life of local activities. If one wish
TEN-DOU to achieve their prosperity, one should have to make
much of the recognition of Center, to make local bases solid and keep
strong cooperation structure with the Center. That is, no TEN-DOU
TEN-MEI come from directly ON-SHI originated from God, which
one could never deprive of. It must be God not human make TEN-
MEI come down. You never fail to obey it. The TEN-MEI you owe is
the Mission of great importance. It is your very life to accomplish it.
It must depend on how DOU-SHIN could make his mind better one
by one to improve the weak constitution of TEN-DOU. Therefore you
have to inform DOU-SHIN the Intention of Center now and then,
that is, on what TEN-DOU should center to execute the TEN-MEI.
You ought bear in mind that whatever their appearance might be
changed the direction you have to aim in the Way shall never be
influenced. To obey whom has TEN-MEI is the very same to follow
me ( ON-SHI ). Therefore I have been managed recent TEN-DOU
through the physical body who should have TEN-MEI.
12. You ought to accomplish both
TEN-DOU and JIN-DOU (the Way of
Humankind) as well as both ethics and morals. You must have much
trust in others so as to create a reliable relationship with each other
and make TEN-DOU sure become a beautiful and bright charitable
institution of faith and sincerity.
13. You should be familiar with
others using JIN (perfect virtue of love)
and behave as a person of character respecting REI (decorum) so
that you could foster SHIN (trust, belief or reliability, confidence).
14. You should make much of
discipline your mind and moral behavior
with regarding the basic GO-JOU (*1) HAT-TOKU (*2) in order to
(*1) GO-JOU: Five Virtues originally inherent in MU-KYOKU (Nothing
c the state before the Creation). They are such as shown bellow.
1) JIN: Love, fellowship and mercy
2) REI: Decorum, modesty and humility
3) SHIN: Belief, trust and confidence
4) GI: Justice, devotion and faithfulness
5) CHI: Wisdom, wits and intelligence
(*2) HAT-TOKU: Eight sorts of virtues derived from GO-JOU, which
contain some original virtues besides them.
15. The marrow and pith of TEN-DOU is
SHU-GEN (*1). That person
must be the very man of TEN-DOU who has mastered SHU-GEN
and achieved to be a super-man. Do your best to SHU-GEN.
(*1) SHU-GEN: To make onefs mind to GEN-KAN concentrates.
A kind of meditation such as Yoga or ZEN.
( notes )
(1) It goes without saying that TEN-DOU people should have to keep
SHU-GEN, but it would be nonsense to make the best their Way
unless they have not yet finished with the basic way of human
ethics and morals.
(2) Even if one might be looked up to as a leader, he should not only
endeavor both SHU-GEN and KEN-SAN (*1) without working in
DEN-DOU (*2). TEN-DOU is not a school, but an exercise hall of
sincerity. It is DEN-DOU how to keep KI at the GEN-KAN. TEN-DOU
without DEN-DOU might be inferior to other religions.
(*1) KEN-SAN; Study or learn about TEN-DOU.
(*2) DEN-DOU; Spread TEN-DOU (the Messages of Gods) among
(3) The trinity of DEN-DOU, KEN-SAN and SHU-GEN would be great
help of you. To know, to realize and to act. To know again in order to
act. To be lost in SHU-GEN in order to know well. You have to
understand that it may as well take your life in TEN-DOU, even though
you might have missed training only one of them.
(4) If only you could have realized what your inner self is, thereafter you
had better take the initiative in outer DEN-DOU than inner study.
16. Realization is
econvictionf of JOU-BUTSU (*1). No one could
achieve the conviction without keeping SHU-GEN. Shall it be
excusable for a man who was already initiated SAN-POU that he has
not yet tasted going into ecstasies over SHU-GEN?
(*1) JOU-BUTSU: Become one of Buddha (a God in RI-TEN).
17. Nothing must be more exquisite
thing in TEN-DOU than SHU-GEN,
where one would feel KI like air he breathed through his nose and
so that he might know the gateway of soul and through the
concentration feel becoming a living Buddha.
Feel at your GEN-KAN and convince the achievement of living
Buddha. It must be the justification by both faith alone and work.
Keep SHU-GEN and you shall get peace of mind.
18. DEN-DOU SHA (*1) should make it a
rule to know well of GU-DOU
SHA (*2) and then preach a sermon ( talk about TEN-DOU )
according to their personality, so that he should be sure a man of
wisdom who would be able to make many-sided discourse on the
(*1) DEN-DOU SHA: DOU-SHIN. People initiated SAN-POU is
generally called DOU-SHIN as well as DEN-DOU SHA, that is,
man of mission to spread TEN-DOU among general public.
(*2) GU-DOU SHA: People who is looking for SAN-POU.
19. It is necessary for you to make
public have as much opportunities
of lecture as possible. You shall never be conceded to have fulfilled
your duty as long as you are merely working in Mission until you
could have made someone understand TEN-DOU and believe it
Keep a proper balance between both Mission and Enlightenment
(amount of both spreading the Way and the lecture).
20.Begin by accustoming yourself to
Decorum, if you wish prosperity of
TEN-DOU. Decorum is used to be executed just as local conversation
in somehow different way according to countryside. If it were once
united, people could concentrate their spirit on one point and local
original Decorum shall be perished. If you could make great use of
their powers, it would be easy to concentrate their mind to unique
22.Review once again how to
a. Have you ever made someone enlighten or inspire, or realize the
Way since you had been initiated SAN-POU ?
b. You should know that people could never become DOU-SHIN
unless you would inspire him to be initiated over and over again.
c. Donft forget your mind and mood when you got SAN-POUc and
d. You should give your thanks to God for your happiness to get the
Way, and reflect that it might be your responsibility for unhappy
people who were not yet initiated SAN-POU.
e. You have to know the fact that it must prove the great power of
GEN-KAN which might attract people to the Way, so that you would
easily lose your both belief and trust without realization of the
central point of concepts.
23 Qualification to get the
If a man could not get the initiation of SAN-POU without keeping
the oaths entirely, whoever have been initiated SAN-POU never
have any qualification to get it, so that they might have to go to Hell.
If so, it will be no use spreading SAN-POU among SAN-KAI (*1).
Should not SAN-POU (*2) rather have been succeeded one after
another as they had been ? If almost all the people who got SAN-POU
surely should fall into Hell, how could the Master gain the honor of
his authority ?
(*1) SAN-KAI; Three worlds, that is, KI-TEN, SHOU-TEN and JI-GOKU
(Hell) among where spirits and souls are repeating reincarnation
(life and death) in order to train themselves.
(*2) SAN-POU; Three invisible treasure, which one will be able to be
endowed from God through the Initiation ceremony in TEN-DOU..
24.Notwithstanding its high value of
religious services one might have
accumulated in several generations or for thousand years, it must be
far below the virtue one shall be gotten at the moment when he is
initiated SAN-POU. However great amount of merits one could have
accumulated in several lives in SHOU-TEN, it must be far shorter
than that which he will obtain when he could have saved a soul.
25. It is expected that the Way will
be so favorably extended as to make
the both home and foreign missionary system steadily established.
As for home system, it should be needed the mutual relationship
filled with harmony made of DOU-SHIN. And the system shall be
released from any restrictive fixed idea and awoken to free
consciousness with the aid of strong relationship.
As for foreign system, it would be required the world-wide active
Missionary organization and publishing of new printings, which may
have extreme enlightening power to spread Messages of Gods
among the worldc
You have to do your best to enlightening missionary activities (DEN-DOU).
That is, as a chain of DEN-DOU, you shall make the best possible
use of your time for a lecture in order to enlighten the earnest new comers.
You ought to have these opportunities as many as possible.
2) New version checklist of Newcomer shall be made, which all TEN-DAN
manager should keep at hand.
Old version one was made imperfectly. You ought to make such a
checklist as to be installed with items of address, telephone number
besides dates of birth and the initiation, and additional notes to be written
something about TEN-DOU.
3) Periodical meeting shall be held in order to increase new person of ability.
Pick up the names of DOU-SHIN who have ever been TEN-DAN
or recent KEN-SAN KAI (Enlightening meeting), who shall be called to
attend at the chance of lecture mentioned above(1). The person in charge
should be responsible for calling them.
4) Instructor ought to make it a rule to use such printing and lecture that the
new comers shall easily be enlightened.
5) Bring up such Instructors (KOU-DOU SHI) that have ability to go out into
the world to give public the lecture at once.
The future of TEN-DOU depends upon excellent achievements of
Instructors. TEN-DOU requires many competent leaders in order
to make its basis strengthen. Any leader who might be poor at
speech, could never give any instructions to persuade DOU-SHIN
to follow them.
It must be the same thing that whether one could make others
understand the basic idea of TEN-DOU well or not should depend
on how correctly one might others show the concepts of it. Therefore,
DOU-SHIN, KOU-DOU SHI (Instructor), DAN-SHU (TEN-DAN manager)
and TEN-DEN SHI (Master) and any other person who plays some
responsible roll in TEN-DOU, that is, all the people training themselves
in the Way shall be able to explain TEN-DOU correctly and obtain the
ability of such a good talker as to be impressed on onefs mind.
6) You ought to become such a good TEN-DAN manager as to execute
any kinds of ceremony shall be held in front of TEN-DAN. Without
execution of any ceremony in front of TEN-DAN, nobody shall be
called a DAN-SHU. Whoever called as TEN-DAN manager should
learn the minimum necessary decorum and at least acquire the habit
of executing daily KEN-KOU REI (incense offering ceremony) in good
faith. You shall never forget that the authorized Gods are used to look
around the holy place such as TEN-DAN all the time.
7) The most important thing for TEN-DAN manager is that he has a Mission
of DAN-SHU. Wherever there is TEN-DAN, there is the Mission of
DAN-SHU come from RAUM, in front of which the Initiation ceremony
could be available. The settlement of TEN-DAN should have done by
Command of RAUM (TEN-MEI). Therefore, any DAN-SHU might as well
betray TEN-MEI as neglect his duty. It will be the most important point of
problem in TEN-DOU that here mentioned above. The person in charge
of DAN-SHU affaires in local missionary bases should take care of this
point and lead DAN-SHU appropriately.
8) Devote your whole energies to low labors.
Clear your mind of all mundane thought, and devote yourself. Seek
everything in your mind. If only you set yourself in low position, everything
will be smooth sailing. Nobody could draw a circle of harmony without the
center of it. The disturbance never fails to begin with getting out of the
center. If the center were steady enough, general public will be longing
for it, and gathered to make harmony there. If the communication between
upper and lower would be frequently, lower should be obeyed and
followed to upper.
post based on TEN-MEI is so grave that you ought to set an example
of anything above mentioned to others. The steadier the Manfs ecenterf is,
the longer the Mission he can keep.
Now is the time where the very self-consciousness is required
TEN-DEN-SHI, DAN-SHU and other stuffs. Keep harmony and move
against coming catastrophe gathering up each ability and mind.
Whoever become TEN-DAN manager is qualified to be endowed a
TEN-MEI from Heaven. If DAN-SHU would keep GO-KAI (five kinds of
taboos), fulfill the duties as a human and devote himself to the Way,
people will follow him without fail.
If a DAN-SHU aware of delay in the management of TEN-DAN,
to reform himself and study to cultivate a new decision for DEN-DOU.
If he lived in distant place where few TEN-DAN were found, he should
do his best to increase the number of TEN-DAN manager around
there with aids of central stuffs.
will need a lot of wisdom and labor in order to spread TEN-DOU
among new territory. It goes without saying that the TEN-DAN has so
powerful right such as guaranteed in Heaven that any kinds of evil
spirits hardly approach it.
some DAN-SHU have erred from right way and forget the
center to be kept so that go to his own way, who will soon be
occupied his mind with the sectarian thought which out of divine
control. Because the legitimate Mission of Master exist merely in
TEN-DOU SOU-TEN-DAN. Make it a principle to keep the rule
thoroughly and take great care of committing no injustice to be
discovered by divine patrol that are making periodical tour of
inspection around TEN-DAN. Therefore, DAN-SHU ought to be pure
and clear in his mind and manage TEN-DAN accordance with divine
Gods shall decide the life span of DAN-SHU because he
has divine Mission to be fulfilled. The fact that he has become a
DAN-SHU according to his accumulated causalities in his former lives
may prove the greatness of his correspondent virtues.
should express the decision to fasten partnership each
other in local area, so that they make mutual relationship tighter. Also,
DAN-SHU had better to make frequent communication with DOU-SHIN and
share their distresses so as to be advanced the smoother activities of
