Held each year at the beginning of July, this ceremony is based on the Principle of Effect and Cause developed by Masami Saionji. Its purpose is to create an energy field at Fuji Sanctuary that radiates divine energy, which flows to all humanity and everything on earth. While this aim is shared with other events at Fuji Sanctuary, the July ceremony focuses specifically on the accomplishment of this energy field by strongly affirming the divinity of humanity, thus projecting the dawn of a new era of elevated consciousness and humanity’s evolution to a more spiritual civilization.
The first July grand ceremony was held in 1998, the same year that Byakko moved its headquarters to Fuji Sanctuary. That ceremony, based on the IN and divine affirmation of Jinrui Soku Kami Nari (humanity is divine), took over eight hours to complete, and brought about a significant shift in the energy at the sanctuary. Since then, the ceremony has focused on strengthening this energy field, and in recent years it has been possible to complete the ceremony in a much shorter period of time. The content of the ceremony has also changed somewhat, and now includes prayers of gratitude to nature and special kotodama (divine prayers).
In 2017, at this ceremony, the Divine Spark IN, dedicated to awakening the divinity within all human beings, has been practiced for the first time by all participants.
At the ceremony held on July 6, 2008, Byakko Chairperson Masami Saionji remarked:
Unhappiness, loneliness, and other negative conditions that people are experiencing at present did not originate from the moment called ‘now.’ They are manifestations of past negative emotions. These suppressed negative emotions cannot generate pleasant or agreeable phenomena. What generate positive circumstances are words and actions of love, peace, truth, and so forth.
Whatever our situations may be, we must not hold fast to them, but must instead think, I am all right, Everything will be fine, Everything will be accomplished, and Great Divine Accomplishment. Each time we think these thoughts, we have registered the energy of accomplishment in our future. What kinds of phenomenal manifestations will this bring about? Only good things — accomplishment, total harmony, peace, and happiness, with nothing missing and nothing lacking. These are the kinds of phenomena that will be manifested in your life from now on.
Please note that membership in Byakko Shinko Kai is required to participate in this ceremony.
