The Kototama principle

The Kototama Principle was perfected many ages ago by our human ancestors. It is the principle of human life in its totality, the principle that governs the activity of the life of the universe. It is the law of the operation of human capacity, its derivation, manifestation and action.

It is within the scope of human capability to create religion, philosophy, art, science, economics, politics, etc. Those manifestations of abilities and actions, from which all civilizations in their myriad aspects are created, follow the principle and law of Kototama. It is, therefore, the basic law or mirror of the Last Judgment.

It is we human beings who must judge the rightness or wrongness, the good and bad, of those things we have created. Without our purification, we cannot make a last judgment.

Some eight thousand years ago, the only true principle for human beings was hidden and civilization went its way in ignorance of it – until now. [...]

For the salvation of all people – to get out of the hell-world of our own making, actual civilization – we must recapture this life principle and turn back again to our natural, original humanity. Salvation does not come from somewhere else. It is we who must save ourselves, but we need the mirror with which to do it. [...]

The Book of Life

Revised edition, 1984

In this current of Amatu Kanagi civilization the human mind has no interest in perfectly cooperating with others for a mutual goal. It is naturally impossible for the human heart to feel this way and the uncooperating mind or group must be allowed to go its way. To induce cooperation, it is necessary to devise some very tricky, complicated and underhanded techniques, increasing the confusion of modern society – digging a bigger hell.

Until the principle of life returns to the human heart, no one can change the course of this current of civilization. When the time comes for all people on earth to seriously decide to purify themselves from this dark current, for that time, our ancestors left us the one way to do it, the life principle of Kototama.

The Real Sense of Natural Therapy

Originally edited by Sarai Saporta, 1992

>> Order book & reading sample


Healing can never be perfected as long as the treatment is confined to the maintenance of our physical existence. We need to realize the total relationship of human beings to the plants, earth, water, heat and air, as well as to the earth and heaven. Until that time comes, humanity will continue to fear sickness and death.

The Source of the Present Civilization

First printing 1994

>> Order book & reading sample


In this volume, I would like to talk about the origins of our civilization according to the records and documents of Hinomoto Kuni. These records began to be hidden systematically about ten thousand years ago for reasons we will see in the following chapters. They belong to two distinct categories: the first deals with the Kototama Principle itself, the principle of human life, and the second with ancient world history. The two categories were hidden separately.

The Source of the Old and New Testaments (Hinomoto no Mikoto Masahilo Nakazono)



The Source of the Old and New Testaments

First printing 2007

>> Order book & reading sample


The Kototama Principle goes back to the first civilization of the world. It was hidden about ten thousand years ago, and handed down through the ages to our era through symbolic constructions like our mythologies and religions, and ancient sciences like far-eastern medicine, astrology and numerology. Each of these is grounded in the truth of the fifty sound rhythms of Kototama Futomani, our life source, the Word of the Creator.

The Bible is one of the books in which the principle can still be found, recorded in symbolic form. I felt the time had come to translate it back to its orginal meaning. My task was not to give a complete translation, but rather to show how the Bible could be read, to help future generations who will look for this life principle and study it as it appears in the ancient documents.

And Other Essays

First printing 1979

Budo: Bu - physical movement; Do - Tao, Logos.

The true way of physical action exactly follows the activity of a priori Life Will. This definition was later narrowed to apply only to the martial arts of the Samurai period of Japan. The goal of their excercise was to open up their highest human capacity. Today, people misunderstand this to mean self-defense or a sportive activity.

About the author



The real meaning of the search for the Kototama Principle is the search for the substance of self. We should, therefore, follow the order of our ancestors’ way of teaching and seriously concentrate on completing the search of the inner self.

We should proceed step by step, to clear up the dust, our devil spirits, and correct our mistakes. We cannot otherwise improve our inner dimension, rising to a higher step of inner capacity. However much and hard we study the many things and matters of the world, accumulating a great deal of knowledge, it is still O-WO dimension of self.

Even studying this life principle of Kototama, memorizing my explanation of the fifty sounds, is not the meaning of our inner dimension rising to a higher step than O-WO. It is not the meaning of purification. For that reason, I have had some misgivings about the negative results that might accrue from the writing of this chapter’s explanation.

On the other hand, perhaps today or tomorrow, somewhere, there will be someone who has devoted his life to searching the final reality. For that one person, to provide a reference, I have decided to go ahead with this explanation.
