Devotion – (Kenshin)

The heart of devotion is towards what?
It is towards the Tao.
The value for all human beings is the only reason for you to devote to Tao.

Because Tao is void, the spirit of the Universe,
It is the appearance of your egoless state.
Devotion is the result of you overcoming self-love.

In ancient days, in Japan, there were priests who were called “Yu-gyo-so” (play going priest) or throw awaked saints.
They were on-going travelers and Nembutsu practitioners, who traveled from village to village and country to country.
They would dig the well of the village for the people who needed water.
They would build a bridge on the river for the people who needed to get across.
And they were the healers as well.

By doing all these works, they could let people's hearts touch the gospel of Amida Buddha.
And transmit the teachings of Dharma.
Sangha work should be done with the same heart as they had.
Motivation is to spread Tao Heart, spread the teachings.

The motivation of your Sangha work comes from your setsu heart.
So, you will not treat Sangha work as your hobby.
You will not do the Sangha work with a conditional limited heart.
So,
Your Sangha work will not be like giving some help to other’s Sangha work.
You will be responsible for the project until its completion.
You will treat Sangha work as a mission of your life.

Devotion is unconditional commitment.
Compare this to the heart of using Tao,
For how much richer is the heart which feels pleasant to be used by Tao, The One, The spirit of the universe.

With this rich heart, you will be able to do the Sangha work unconditionally and unlimitedly.
That's how you can spend a most energetical life.
And that’s why one who lives with unconditional Sangha work is in their "Forever Young Days".Devotion – (Kenshin)

Zuiki. (To feel happiness for other’s happiness).

Zuiki is the heart to feel happiness for other's happiness.
Why Rita is the source of happiness
Is because the heart of Zuiki is present.

The happiness will come from the source of the universe by having the heart of Zuiki.
And Zuiki will bring you true happiness for now and in the future.

A sad part of human beings is that we all have jealousy.
This is the heart of feeling negative about the happiness of others.
Jealousy is a dark prayer, wishing that happiness hadn’t come to the person who is having happiness

Zuiki is to feel other's happiness as your happiness.,
Wishing that other's happiness will continue.
Wishing that even more happiness comes to those who already have happiness now.

You should know,
What you are wishing to others is what you are wishing for yourself.
And all wishes will be realized, as is the principle of the universe.

Therefore,
If you wish that good fortune doesn’t go to others, good fortune will not come to you.
If you wish that good fortune goes to others, good fortune will come to you.

When you have such knowledge,
Zuiki will become the philosophy of your life.
And life itself becomes the practice of Zuiki heart.

The Source of the universe is the happiness which spreads infinitely.
See Buddhist sutra.
How much you can find the word "happiness" in there.
Shakyamuni, filled with the happiness light of Amida Buddha,
Shared his happiness of enlightenment.

Pure Land is full of happiness.
The universe itself is the Zuiki heart.
All existence enjoys happiness for each other's happiness.

The state of increasing the depth of happiness by the infinitive connection of wishing each other's happiness.
This is the happiness of Pure Land.
This is the happiness of the Universe.

Increase the number of happy people, who live with Zuiki heart,
Is also the mission of Tao
As these people increase,
Won’t the world become an easier place to live?
Won’t the world become a more joyful place to live?Zuiki. (To feel happiness for other’s happiness).

Rita. (Giving Heart).

(1)
The heart and practice of giving merit to others is the meaning of Rita.
But be careful of your misunderstanding.
The purpose of Rita is not to give to others the "gaining happiness".

Sometimes you unexpectedly create the relationship of “giver and taker"
But in that case, the heart of the giver becomes rich but the heart of the taker becomes poor.
The purpose of Rita is not to make such a distinction.

And as long as the taker doesn’t become a giver, their heart will not grow in richness.
You have to be wise enough not to let the receiver drop into the "gaining happiness" state, and create a taker.
Wise enough to let others become givers as well.

(2)
Your motivation of Rita practice;
Is to show your action, as an example of a Rita practitioner.
Is because your setsu heart naturally makes you do this.
It is because you wish that others will also have the heart of Rita.

And as you know, the principle of the universe is "one who gives will gain the most".
Your motivation of Rita;
It is because you want others to be rich as well.
Is because you want to share the principle of the universe.

Imagine, someone who received Rita from you starts to share that heart with others as well.
And then those that received that heart also start to share the Rita heart with others.
This is how Tao heart spreads and all people become rich.

This shows that Tao heart is not a word but action.
This shows that your Tao heart is only real if there is action to share with others.

If the heart of Rita spread in this way,
Your action of Rita was a true treasure for the world.
The quality of Rita is unmeasurable.
It will change the world.Rita. (Giving Heart).

Gratitude. (Kansha).

If you are looking for the way to give the treasure of the heart to people,
You must be grateful to Tao.
Because you have received the way to do it through the teachings of Tao Sangha.

If you are looking for spiritual growth for yourself and others,
You must be grateful to Tao.
Because you have received the way to do it through the teachings of Tao Sangha.
Pure gratitude to Tao is not because you have gained something.
Gratitude is because you are able to give.
And there is a clear determination of repaying within it.

Be wise enough to know if your gratitude to Tao is real or not,
Especially, when you have received something from Tao.
Because often it makes you feel as if you have true gratitude to Tao.
But, if your gratitude doesn’t include the determination of repaying,
This gratitude will be called "gained gratitude".

Be careful with your “gained gratitude”.
What you have gained no longer becomes the reason to feel gratitude to Tao.
You know why? Because you have it already.
You will start to feel that you deserved it. (Your right to receive, of course, or why not?).

Then you will start to desire and look for more merit to gain.
You might even start to look towards feeling unsatisfied so as not to feel gratitude.
And as soon as you stop gaining merit from Tao,
The "gained gratitude" you felt before could easily turn to negative feelings towards Tao.

Because "gained gratitude" is based on your self-interest.
If the motivation of your Tao Sangha study was not to share the merit with others,
You might not able to have real gratitude to Tao, but temporary "gained gratitude".

Gratitude to Tao is to give, not to gain.
And there is a clear determination of repaying,
And repaying means to give the same gratitude to others that you received from Tao,
And it is for Tao to be praised.
And the richness of repayment comes from the motivation of giving,
More than you think you have received from Tao.

If the determination of repaying is not clear, your spirit might not have grown enough yet to receive the merit of Tao.
Your capacity might not have expanded enough yet to receive the spirit of Tao.
If you have such a rich motivation, as repaying more than you received,
You have the capacity to receive unlimited merit from Tao.
The merit will be more than you can ever imagine.

Gratitude to Tao increases the richness of your heart.
Gratitude to Tao itself is blessing your existence.

The real gratitude makes you feel that your gratitude is always never enough.
Because gratitude to Tao is forever.Gratitude. (Kansha).
