The Secret of the Roundtrip Visit

Haku-san Chukyo-Jinjya in Gifu Prefecture literally means Chu(中)= middle, inside, Kyo(居)= placed, shrine of Haku-san. The shrine resides at the very bottom of Haku-san.

Originally, there were nine gods in nine small hokora(祠) shrine on the trail of Haku-san. Therefore, this shrine is where the nine gods come together. This shrine is the true Haku-san “Kukuri-hime” Shrine. (Kukuri-hime= the hidden secret of “binding”) It is very rare to see a hokora(for Amaterasu-Ohomikami at the Haku-san shrines.

The honden(main shrine) is placed facing Ise. In the ancient times, there was a system in the Gods’ World to bind Ise and Haku-san. The river that runs through the shrine is the spiritual source of the Kuzuryu-gawa (九頭竜川= nine headed dragon river).

Taicho-daishi had witnessed a giant dragon at the Midori-no-ike lake on the top of Haku-san. The lore tells that the true identity of this giant dragon is the Eleven-Headed Kuan-Yin (means=the completed sound). Actually, in my opinion, it is the other way around. The giant dragon is a Giant Black Dragon Deity and it is a figure or a form that takes place as the energy of Haku-san. Depending on who is looking at the figure, it can be seen in a different form. If the person is a Buddhist, it might be seen as a Kuan-Yin. If the person is a Shintoist, it might appear as a Shinto Goddess.

When I visited the Haku-san Chukyo-Jinjya, I sensed the presence of a Black Giant Dragon Deity. The Deity has been guarding Haku-san for centuries. Haku-san=Black Dragon. Ise=Bird.

When this two energy comes together and become one, is turns into a form of a Phoenix. A phoenix is a half dragon, half bird figure.

From now one, we the children of this motherland will bind Ise and Haku-san to creat the New Era of the Phoenix energy. The whole system of the society will change.

We have our own innate god in our heart. On the outside we worship the gods at the kami-dana altar. Human are lazy. We think if we know it in our heart, we don't need to thanks the gods daily. That is not the truth. By taking care and the time to change the water and the sakaki leaves daily, that moment you are one with the gods. It is good to have that moment daily. When you send your gratitude towards the gods at a shrine, you are facing your own innate god. When you send your gratitude towards the gods at your own kami-dana, it is the same. This is the law of the roundtrip energy. You give your energy to the gods and the gods give back to your innate god.

“The energy of gratitude” is the clear and pure energy that will bring back a clear and pure energy to yourself. The wish sending is not good. Believing in a god, savior outside of yourself is a one way ticket. The energy will not come back to you. Thus no growth.

Gods are all in oness.
The god at your altar, the god in your heart. It is the same.

Hidden Shrines of Ise 8 - Going to Haku-san

When I visted the Haku-san Chukyo Jinjya, I sensed a very ancient god residing at the honden, main shrine. It seemed to be the parent gods of Izanami and Izanagi. Here, the vibrational energy of the gods was in oneness with Haku-san. The large shrines where they worship Haku-san would always place Izanami and Izanagi as their main god of worship. The worship of Kukuri-hime-kami was added later at the Haku-san Shrines. It was because Kukuri-hime-kami had hold together the husband and wife god, Izanami and Izanagi, to later become the parents of Amaterasu-Ohomikami.

In the Japanese Mythology, Izanami and Izanagi are the gods who made the land of Japan, and all the gods of Amatsu-kami (the Heavenly Gods) and Kuni-tsukami (the Earthly Gods). However, at Ise Jingu and other shrines that worship the Heavenly Gods, they have a policy not to worship the parent gods but to bring the daughter god as the director of earthly events.

At the Haku-san Shrines, God Izanami and Izanagi has been the main gods to be worshipped from the ancient times. Haku-san is the place where the parents of all land and gods of Japan reside.

After visiting the main shrine, we went to the shrine on the right side to the main shrine. This shrine worships Amaterasu-Ohomikami. Here I witnessed a nichirin, circle of light, just like I had seen at Ise Jingu. The left side shrine was for God Ninigi (Amatsu-kami). I sensed a God Spirit at this place as well. At the other shrine where God Sarutahiko (Kunitsu-kami) is worshipped, I also sensed a God Spirit in residence.

It is very rare to have all the shrines big and small to be alive like this. Especially the God Ninigi is worshipped in many different shrines through out Japan, but this was the first time I felt a God Spirit alive inside the shrines. Many other shrines were more business minded, in which case, the God Spirits no longer nest at such place.

I was glad to have visited this shrine, Haku-san Chukyo Jinjya at the end of my journey. It was worth the while. All the major gods resided in this shrine. It could become the place of the second Tenson Korin. It is interesting that both Ise Jingu and Haku-san Chukyo Jinjya were built at the time of Emperor Ouryaku (456-479 AD). I sense the Will Power of the Kuni-tama (the soul of the land) behind this Emperor.

From now on, as the line between Ise and Haku-san opens for the Divine Power to descent, more people will start to visit this area and the shrines. And the door will open for the World of Gods to interfere with this earthly dimension. This was all planned from the ancient times.

By this door opening, the war will come to an end between the Amatsu-kami and Kunitsu-kami, between countries, between societies, between familes… All will come to peace for the New Era to begin.

For the future generation, the spirits from the future will have to interfere into the present. Those who are willingly able to do the round trip between Ise and Haku-san might be the people from the future who are here to help this era of chaos. If you cannot do it, don’t worry. As long as you keep cleaning your ancestral pipeline and send gratitude to everything around you that will be more than enough.

If you are visiting the shrines, it is best to go on your own or with your family rather than going with a big group.

I ended my journey by visiting two more shrines. Nagataki-Hakusan-Jinjya and Hakusan-Hime-Jinjya.
I feel that I am getting younger day by day.
