103. Without Erring
Komakichi Komatsu, who lived in Osaka, returned to Jiba for the first time in July 1882, led by Tokichi Izumita, his spiritual guide, in order to offer his gratitude. This was soon after his recovery from cholera and the beginning of his faith.
When Komakichi was granted an audience with Oyasama, She personally handed him an amulet and spoke these gracious words:
“I appreciate your return from the bustling town of Osaka to the remote countryside. You are eighteen and still young. Go through life without erring. As long as you do not err, in the end, your happiness will exceed all bounds.”
Komakichi kept these words as his lifelong motto and remained constant in them throughout his life.
