Excerpts from Miki Nakayama and discriminated peoples

I realize it has been a reeaaallly long time since I posted anything or made any updates to this website. I offer my apologies.

I stumbled upon a translation I did some time ago that I felt could be useful to researchers of Tenrikyo and burakumin in general. I am unsure if this post will lead to more activity on this website down the road or not.

Happy Oyasamas 2013!

April 18 is Oyasama‘s birthday, or what I like to call Oyasamas.

If there is anyone out there wondering how to celebrate, one way you could do so is to wear red on April 18. Another way is to read The Life of Oyasama!

In any case, have a Happy Oyasamas!

Happy Thanksgiving 2012!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!! Thank you for visiting the site!

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve posted anything on Tenrikyology.com. Thank you all for your continued patience. Hopefully, I’ll be back to posting regularly sooner if not later.

As of now, I plan to spend an American-style Thanksgiving in the first time in who knows when. It will be the first time my wife and children will be experiencing a Thanksgiving. For this, I am immensely thankful.

Other things I have been greatly grateful for recently:

  • Wonderful and understanding family and friends
  • Spiritual solace from unexpected sources
  • Life and all that it has to offer

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
