Publishing

Publishing is a major part of our effort to spread Meishu-sama's teaching throughout the world and ensure that it will be transmitted to future generations. Our publications center on writings by Mokichi Okada and works about him and his teaching.

In 1984, together with two sister organizations in Kyoto--Reimei Kyokai and Meshiya Kyokai--we published the English translation of the core teachings of Mokichi Okada. It is called Johrei: Divine Light of Salvation. This is a basic English-language exposition of the teaching. More than 10,000 copies have been sent around the world to individuals and university and public libraries. The introduction contains a biography of Mokichi Okada and his spiritual journey, and the appendices include interpretative essays on points of doctrine, an account of a controlled test of Johrei administered to cancer patients, and a detailed discussion of nature farming in theory and practice.
