to Light of Grace)
principles of the 'Ittoen' movement, founded in 1904 by Tenko
we be born anew and live as we are accepted and enabled to live
by the one indivisible Light of grace.
May we worship and revere the truth, which is the same in all
religions and work for the cherished goal, and great hope (vow)
which is also common to all.
May we serve others in the spirit of "sange" (selfless
penitence for all the evils of the world) and do mendicant labor
May we attain fulfillment by abiding by the principles for community
life based upon the supreme and eternal law
And may we, in this way, return to our Home filled with heavenly
flowers and smell of freshness, and flow freely in the paradise
free of any fixed form.
