Daily Guiding Principles
 ー Written by Masami Saionji


When people encounter life's torrents, who will be able to overcome them?
One must call up the gifts (knowledge, experience, effort, and devotion) that have been cultivated in one's mind and body, and deal with them courageously and with all one's might.
Moreover, If they have strong faith, they will be protected and guided by an unseen entity, and they will be able to overcome the obstacles without difficulty.
However, many people who do not have faith as well as past experience, knowledge, effort, and devotion are swept away by the torrent.
Faith plus daily effort and devotion are important for human beings.


To alleviate internal anguish through external means is a way of life in modern times.
However, this does not provide a fundamental solution.
The anguish and pain may subside temporarily, but it is not eternal and will recur.
To alleviate internal suffering, there is no other way but through internal means.


Medicines exist for the body.
Prayers are for the soul.
Medicine is for those whose bodies are ill.
Religion is for those whose souls are ill.
Treatment of the body and the soul are considered separately.
But, if the soul is not sick, the body will not be ill.
Prayers exist to lift the soul, to remove the illnesses of the heart.
If you think your body is ill, first, rely on a doctor and medicine.
But that alone is not enough.
Then, pray.
Pray to cleanse the illnesses of the heart, the impurities of the soul.
Through this, the physical illness will be completely healed.
