End of Omichi no joshiki as a regular feature/Table of Contents

I posted the final entry from my translations of the first half of entries from Omichi no joshiki (a work by Koji Sato sensei) last week, and I’ve decided to end its run as a regular weekly feature. I feel it’s time to move on to other things.

Translations from the second half of Omichi no joshiki will hereafter only be posted on demand. The Table of Contents can be found below, and it includes links to post with translations of entries from the first half.

If you see any entry in the second half that seems interesting, e-mail me at roy@tenrikyology.com and I’ll translate it (if it has not already been done so) and put it up.

I’m planning to move on to something old actually, before beginning a new project. I’ll post translations (some revised) from 58 Selected Writings (Japanese title: Ohanashi goju hassen) that I originally posted on Tenrikyo Forum more than a year ago in the weeks to come.
