Comment on verse 81
Whatever may be said about things already seen,
unless the origin is known, there can be no understanding.
This verse clearly implies that the mission of Yoboku is to let the people know the origin. And the mission of Tenrikyo Church is to actively engage in the organized effort of letting the origin known throughout the world.
The origin is what God the Parent wishes us to know. That joyous life is the reason for the entire existence, both man and world, is the bottom line. That our thoughts and actions must be based on the bottom line, is all God urges us to be aware. That God provides means through which God works with us to realize the joyous life, is what makes Tenrikyo unique and original. God works through the Service, which can be done only at Jiba. Jiba is more than the so-called holy place. It is the center where God power is generated, which then extends to throughout the world, like electricity generated at Jiba it lights up all the services done throughout the world.
end of comment.
All human bodies are things lent by God.
