The following is an excerpt of “The Life of the Foundress” by Yoshinaru Ueda as it appears in Tenrikyo: Its History and Teachings (1966), pp. 28–30. Note that this excerpt has been slightly revised to reflect current translation styles.
I’ve decided to upload the English version of the “sermon” I gave almost two years ago at New York Center. It has some personal and other information that hopefully some of you out there might find interesting.
