About Toho no Hikari
Construction of an Ideal World
Toho-no-Hikari is one of the subordinate organizations under the umbrella religious organization of Sekai Kyusei Kyô, which works for the construction of an ideal world filled with truth, virtue and beauty by solving the difficult problems of illness, poverty and conflicts of individuals, families and society, by following the teachings of the founder, Meishu-sama (Mokichi Okada 1882-1955).
Salvation of Individual and Family
Our present society is facing various issues. Needless to say, not only in each individual but in each family, there might be various issues and sufferings.
At the inaugural ceremony of the “Japan Kannon Society” (the predecessor of the present Sekai Kyusei Kyô, Toho-no-Hikari), Meishu-sama stated, “The world is composed of people, who form countries. Countries are composed of cities, towns, and villages, which are made up of families, and families are made up of individuals. Therefore, if the individual who constitutes the basic unit cannot be saved, then there is no way the world can be saved,” and, “When individuals are saved and perfected, then by extension, the entire world can be saved and perfected. Accordingly, the emphasis must be first placed on saving and perfecting the individual. Take for example, a single family as a prototype of the world, when the family is saved and attain the state of paradise, the whole world will be saved.”
The desire of Toho-no-Hikari is the salvation of individuals and families which are the smallest units that compose the world and the society, and expand it to the community, the nation, and to the world.
Working towards a Perfect Human Being
Meishu-sama taught us, “The ultimate objective of faith is fostering perfect human beings.” This is a path of becoming a person of true happiness by understanding the mechanism of the world including the meaning of life and death and practicing altruistic deeds wishing for the happiness of people.
