The following is a translation of the Foreword from Ishizue: Kashihara Genjiro no shinko to shogai (Cornerstone: The Faith and Life of Genjiro Kashihara) by Teruo Nishiyama. Note: This translation is a provisional one and may need to undergo further revision.

I posted the ninth and last of my completed translations of Ohanashi goju hassen (tentative English title: 58 Selected Writings) on October 18. I haven’t worked on it since February 2007, since I decided it would be more fruitful to devote my attention elsewhere.
Intuition tells me that the work is a little too “Japanese-y” to be of benefit to English-speakers (with apologies to any Utada Hikaru-haters out there). Nevertheless, I will keep the promise I initially made at Tenrikyo Forum: If there is anything that seems interesting in the Table of Contents (Click “Read more”), specify a request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll work on it. Translation-on-demand, if you will.
Note that the translations of the titles among the ones I haven’t translated are tentative since I have yet to read most of them, let alone know what they are actually about.
I have still yet to begin on my promised follow-up feature/project for Tenrikyology.com. Hopefully I can start on it soon and so it will be the main feature here for the rest of 2009.

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 email@example.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.
