Seeing Red


In case you don’t notice, I am fucking furious. F U R I O U S.

I just came across this teaching in the Primary Kenshu (what they now call the Spiritual Development Course). It’s in the section about sins and impurities common to all humankind. This is a screen shot of the actual document that the lecturer is instructed to read 'exactly like a parrot’. I’d forgotten it.

So. God created your body and it was perfect. The highest object of art. (Evolution has actually created a human body that's lucky to work, or else God's design is a bit shit and He meant that.) And if you do anything to it like sticking needles in it (injections, vaccinations, piercings, shock horror TATTOOS) it’s defiling God’s art, God’s property! That’s YOU, by the way.

Now, if you have had any surgery, that causes massive sins and impurities from wounding God’s physical body property (that’s YOU).

Needless to say, if one has a surgical operation, the sins and impurities are even greater.


If you needed surgery as a baby — A BABY — you accumulated great sins and impurities. If you broke your arm and needed surgery, you accumulated sins and impurities. If you needed your gall bladder removed, or cataracts removed, or a skin cancer removed, or an emergency heart operation, or a Caesarian to save your baby, or anything surgical done at all — yep, you accumulated massive sins and impurities.

How. Fucking. Dare. They.

The surgery might have been inevitable, and necessary to save your life, but you probably needed the surgery because of your family’s horrendously deep sins and impurities. But having the surgery adds the debt back on.

They also say that going through suffering, like illness (untreated by ‘so-called medical science’) is cleaning, erasing your sins and impurities.

This is the worst sort of manipulation and fear indoctrination. What an evil way to ensure your followers are certain of their deep sins and impurities and the ‘debt they owe’ your 'so-called God’.

How many of us have got through life without a single needle, without a single scalpel cut, let alone without a piercing or tattoo? Oh, practically none of us?! Well isn’t that convenient?! That's everyone in the room, then.

The first time you hear this you’re sitting in the primary course, all keen to absorb their 'special teachings', trying to accept what you’re hearing. Being told to be obedient. And you will quickly discover that you are shameful, defiling yourself without even knowing it, and have to start with an ‘attitude of apology’ otherwise God will not save you! Let’s create shame and guilt from the very start!

This makes me sick. This is the lowest of the low. Utterly. Disgusting.

Part 1

Before I get stuck into this one, let’s have a look at the group’s current public statements about health, how they present themselves to non-members.

BTW, light = True Light = Okiyome (their 'purifying energy from God').

The Sukyo Mahikari American site says, on their FAQs page:

Does light heal illness?

No. As the light purifies the spiritual aspect of human beings, positive effects can occur on many different levels. However, the purpose of the practice is for spiritual development.

On their Health page it says:

Receiving light is not a substitute for medical examinations and treatment. Sukyo Mahikari advises people that it is necessary to receive medical advice and take appropriate medical care of themselves and their families.

Their European site says about Health:

In general, the Western approach to health does not acknowledge a spiritual dimension. However, this attitude is gradually changing. By introducing more people to the principles that govern the universe, Sukyo Mahikari anticipates an era in which more people enjoy good health and well-being.

So, I guess that doesn’t sound too bad, if you’re into a bit of spiritual stuff in general. They sound kinda reasonable? Maybe? Fairly benign? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Well, hang onto your fucking hats, boys and girls. Cos here we go … down the rabbit hole of Mahikari’s actual teachings on health. What they don't tell in public. Despite their more benign public face, you can be 100% sure that their actual teachings have not changed.

There's a lot to discuss, so to save your eyes bleeding, I'll only assail your sensibilities a bit at a time, and do this over a few blog posts.

First of all, you need to know that God is getting a bit fed up with we humans, and the world is entering severe times, called the Baptism by Fire. What with COVID-19, climate change, and reality TV, I’m not arguing there. But this has been a constant warning, since the group surfaced in the late 1950s. Are we there yet?

Here's a quote from their 'bible', Goseigen:

Medicine (Kusuri), Revelation at 3:00 am on April 3, 1959

God feels true pity for the present condition of the world because you cherish medicine so much, just like ants that gather around sugar, so I shall clearly show you the Correct Path or the Vertical (spiritual) Path. Medicine (KUSURI) is not sugar. When it is overused, it can be the cause of losing mankind's spiritual power and facing disastrous death.

For reasons which could not be disclosed in public, God once allowed medicine to be used by humans. It was because of the Arrangement which could not be revealed in those days. However, there is a vast difference between the present condition and what God truly intended, so I [God] shall tell you [Okada] the truth. ...

Although you have been enjoying and have been allowed to enjoy this poison, even naming it medicine on your own, you should know that its true nature has been shown at the same time by the KOTODAMA of KUSURI. “KU” indicates suffering', which you always talk about, and the function of choking. “SU ' means the function of the power to control, and it also brings the phenomena of termination and restriction. It works as the power of decision, as the power used in the response of “yes!” and also as the power to stop. “RI” has the power to close, such as closing a door, to tighten and harden everything. ...

Therefore, God is finally going to intensely cleanse the poison of the triplicity of your MI (the spiritual, astral and physical bodies) and develop the positive spiritual power. Otherwise, the true children of God (HITO) will lose their original power, which will make fruitless the purpose for which God created His children, the Earth and food prepared for them. For this reason, God must finally carry out MISOGIHARAHI which is one of the causes of the evolution of the Divine Plan, progressing step by step towards the time of the Baptism of Fire. It is one of the most principal reasons for reinforcing the spiritual essence of Fire in the Universe.

It goes on further, but you get the gist. God used to let us use medicine for secret reasons, but now we can't, and we didn't pick up the hints He left us in the Japanese name for medicine, and now He's going to clean us up. So we can work for His plan.

Secondly, drugs and injections harden inside your body (hard drugs, get it?). Nope, no such thing as drug metabolism or excretion. I mean, why even bother having a liver and kidneys? Also frozen foods make your body harden from the cold, so don’t eat them. No ice cream for you! ☹️🚫🍦

This is what Okada (the founder) wrote for primary kenshu (the 3-day initiation/brainwashing course):

The poisons that go into your body by pouring them in or breathing them in become incredibly hard in your body. Medication or injections, for instance, when they are first put into your body they are in liquid form, a powder or something like that. Well, there'd be no problem if these toxins came out of your body after you put them in there, but they don't. They become solid.

So people who take in poisonous medication make their muscles change from living flesh to something like wood, and finally into something like mineral rock. Eventually such people make their muscles like concrete, Sukuinushisama* said.

In short, things become hard. And when things become hard like this, people call it a tumour, cancer and so on. But in fact it's only hardened medication that had been taken orally or through injections.

That's why more cancer is found in the so-called civilised people. Isn't cancer becoming a national disease in America and such countries? Lately in Japan as well there's been a tremendous increase in cancer.

Stupid medical researchers! Why haven’t they discovered that cancer tumors are made up of hardened medication yet? And I'm still shocked that my doctors haven't figured out I have concrete muscles.

Next thing to know. Germs help to cause fevers which can melt these toxins. The higher the fever, the harder the toxins they can melt. The gross stuff that comes out of you, like snot, phlegm, diarrhea, and pus, is the molten toxins coming out, cleaning the inside of your body. Because that's exactly how bodies work. 🙄

So it’s obvious that stopping a fever is stopping your body from being able to get rid of these toxins. Stopping diarrhea and runny noses, infected sinuses and in fact any infection of any type is also reprehensible! You’ve only got yourself to blame if you end up dying from cancer. 🤷🏼‍♀️

The beauty of Mahikari, though, is that Okiyome / Light can melt those hardened toxins in your body, too! Woo! So by receiving Light, you can avoid needing such a high fever to melt toxins and be purified. Or whatever.

But wait! There's more! It’s not just medicine and other crap you eat!

No, you can also generate toxins in your body by getting angry. So don't ever feel angry! See, proof is in kenshu teachings! 🚫😡

Human beings also generate poison when angry. That is why those who lose their temper lose out. This is why the lifespan of short-tempered people is short. It is because in such people's bodies more poison is generated than in other people. So, such a person accumulates a lot of poison in him during his lifetime.

If a person becomes impure it is necessary for God to clean his cells to let him achieve his natural lifespan, so a major cleaning will occur.

In other words, he'll get a major illness. So from now on everyone, please remember that if you get angry, you'll lose out.

BUT! All this is only 20% of the cause of so-called diseases which Mahikari do not acknowlege the existence of!

You’ve ALSO inherited a bunch of sins and impurities from your ancestors, going way back, and from humanity as a whole. AND let’s not forget attaching spirits. Who could forget those guys. They can be ancestors, other dead people, evil spirits, or animal spirits. They attach to your body, and can cause all kinds of diseases. 👻

Any 'disease' is 20% physical (crap you’ve been putting into your body) and 80% spiritual (attaching spirits, karma, negativity and other bad shit).

As it says in primary kenshu:

As I explained yesterday with various actual examples of spirit disturbance, 80% of problems are spiritual.

Therefore, the most important thing is to solve spirit disturbance. This is extremely important for human life, for all humankind as well.

Therefore, the main essence of medical science should really be solving spirit disturbance.


And how do you solve spirit disturbance, boys and girls? YES! You become a member of Mahikari, give Okiyome, offer Divine Service, make donations, have an ancestors’ altar, and all the rest. You put God and the Dojo first.

In short, in Mahikari, to the very end, healing (treatment) is not the aim. The aim is to become free of illness. What is particularly important here is to find out the spirit disturbance of the person and solve it. In solving the spirit disturbance guide the person to reverse his sōnen [innermost attitude]. This is the most important thing.

To the very end we have to make people repent from the soul and change into Divine character. If a person repents from the soul, he'll become a practitioner of Seihō Kami Muki, and arrangements will occur for health, harmony and wealth naturally. Okiyome is for this purpose.

What Sukuinushisama* and Oshienushisama** strongly emphasised as the medicine of the future is “true medicine for the salvation of the world, medicine (great study) in which the trinity, spiritual medicine, mental medicine and material medicine, are combined as one body.”

And the point is that spiritual medicine makes up at least 80%. Mental and material medicine combined is 20% at the most. Because thinking in this modern age is opposite to this, there are diseases with unknown causes and the number of sick people is increasing.

So the Yōkōshi [sunlight children] movement is to try to change this current flow and give rise to a medicine (great study) for the sake of mankind.

Please distinguish this matter clearly.

I gotta say, re-reading all this stuff is making me feel sick. Must be spirit disturbance ...

*Sukuinushisama is Okada, the founder dude. *Oshienushisama is Okada's 'adopted daughter' (cough* mistress cough), who 'inherited' the leadership from Okada after he died and a huge legal battle.

Mahikari has pretty sick teachings on charities. And I mean sick as in cruel, not excellent.

So here’s how this goes.

First of all let’s get one thing straight. You have heaps of sins and impurities, right? From previous lives, general sins of all humankind, and the crap stuff you’ve done in this life. Hell, it’s a lot. Trust me on this. Lots and lots of negative karma. Fuck you’re screwed.

However. God really wants you to erase this negative karma, and is trying to help you! Woo! How does He manage this? Well, by cleaning you up, erasing this crap ... by causing you suffering, or 'cleansing'. Pay back time. Illness, being poor, being beaten up, conflict, shit abusive jobs and relationships. That’s God showing his love. Honest. So you can erase your negative shit and make everything great. Eventually.

This ties in with their ‘have gratitude for anything and everything from morning til night, how gracious it is that nothing bad exists’ thought-stopping shit mantra, too. Lost your job and can’t feed your kids? Cool! You’re erasing heaps of sins and impurities! Got a dreadful disease? Congratulations! Begone, negative karma! Be grateful! Yaaaaaaaaay!

In normal life, someone who has fallen on hard times might be helped by a charity. Housing for women fleeing domestic violence, help for the homeless, food for the starving, toys for refugee kids, saving a forest. Heaps of stuff. Cos, you know, that’s the decent humane thing to do. To help each other. Actively. Doing stuff, donating stuff. Showing the fuck up.


Mahikari teaches that charities and even hospitals interfere in God’s plans, stopping His cleansing, by making things easier for you, and lessening the suffering associated with whatever crap you’re going through. They ‘perpetuate the misery of mankind’. And when that happens, well, God’s got no other choice, does He? (Does He? I mean, being God and all … ? Maybe he could kinda not do that? No? Just me?)

He has to make your suffering more severe, seeing as what you were going through before was the ‘easiest option to erase your karma’. But you’ve chosen, fuckwit that you are, to use useless human knowledge to ‘solve your problems’. And now He has to step you up a notch to the Next Level of Erasing Karma. You might get incurable cancer, or have your kid killed, or go bankrupt, or something much worse than what you were already going through. You idiot.

So, members are actively discouraged from supporting ‘hypocritical’ charities. It’s much MUCH more important to support the TRUE charity of spiritual awakening and purification to save humankind and the environment — Oh wait! Is that us in Mahikari? It IS? OMG! Oh guys, I don’t know what to say, I’m just overwhelmed, we’re the one true path to God and we’re the one true charity? Oh wow. I don’t have a speech prepared or anything. AND we have tax-free status as a charitable organisation? Oh, this is like the best thing ever!

So. Donate your time and money to Mahikari! It’s that simple really. Don’t waste your time or money on actual charities, which only make people accumulate more impurities and the need for more severe purification. You’re actually being kind to people by offering to give them True Light (the highest form of altruistic love, by the way, in case you didn’t know), and helping them learn how to offer Divine Service too! Offering more and more money to them is the ‘true charity work’.

Besides, God is the one who gave you any money you have in the first place, so it’s only fair that you give a whole lot of it back to Him! You selfish arsehole.

When I was in, we never did fundraising for anyone or anything outside of the cult. Build a new temple, sure! Help anyone else ... yeah, nah.

Hmmm 🤔

Just to show I’m not making this fuckery up, here’s one of the founder's 'Mini Teachings'. Note: ‘charitable work’ = them.

“To build hospitals in order to save sick people, to collect money to do so ... just increases the number of patients who are poisoned by medicines*. They are far from charities. I would call them hypocritical charities, which accumulate sins and impurities. 'Charitable work' is the deed to rid mankind of disease and poverty, and actualise truly peaceful and safe civilisation on this earth.

“In order to spread heavenly civilisation, it is also a 'charitable' work to correct clearly the mistakes which are considered as common sense at the present time. To offer more and more money for that work ... this is also charitable work. The flood of hypocritical charities is too much now and the world is deteriorating more and more.

“For these reasons I wish, all the more, for those who work hard in hypocritical charities, to be awakened to the real charities and to introduce people who are suffering in poverty and sickness without tranquillity of mind to real salvation.

“Suppose one person has donated one hundred million yen* [to Mahikari]. Imagine how much this will cause the circle of salvation to expand. That can be a great salvation, can't it? I call this 'charitable work'.”

How charities should be, Sunkyo, pg 82–83

This cult presents a benign face to the public, trying to look less fucking insane, but I can guarantee you that the founder’s teachings and their prayer book and ‘bible’ won’t have had a single word altered. Don’t trust these fuckers.

  1. Medicine = toxins, which build up in the body to cause diseases. Obviously.

  2. ¥100,000,000 = about $880 USD (Nov 2021)
