I learned this prayer many years ago when I was a member of the Johrei Fellowship. 

Johrei is a spiritual practice based on the focusing of universal life energy, also referred to as “divine” or spiritual light., 

I believe that the same divine light I learned to channel so many years ago is now being channeled through the Alchemy of my Gongs.

Amatsu Norito

Taka-amahara ni Kamzumari masu

Kamurogi Kamuromi no mikoto mochite

Sume-mioya kamu Izanagi o mikoto

Tsukushi no Himuka no Tachihana no

Misogi harai tamou toki ni nari maseru

Haraido no okami-tachi

Moro-moro no magagoto tsumi kegare o

Harai Tama-e kiome tama-e to
