Becoming an Ikigami

"Ikigami" means Living God.

Since all people are born with a part of Tenchi Kane No Kami's heart and spirit, everyone has the latent ability to become a living deity. By embodying Tenchi Kane No Kami's intentions and carrying out His wish to save people, anyone can become an extension of Tenchi Kane No Kami, and therefore a living god.

A living god (ikigami) is not an exalted being or someone with mysterious, spiritual powers. It is the ideal human being who strives to save people from suffering and problems and to make the world a happier place to live in.

Tenchi Kane No Kami is invisible, but His work is visible through the efforts of people striving to become an ikigami. And only through such people can Tenchi Kane No Kami come to life in the real world.
