To-no-Wosite and Ukesuteme

We have described how the teachings of To-no-Wosite were brought to China from Hinomoto many millenia ago. We have also presented the story of Ukesuteme who became the spiritual master, Mother of the West, known to Taoists as Xi Wangmu.

To no Wosite and Taoism

We now come to the title of this series, “The Root of Taoism is in Wosite Japan.” It is derived from this part of Beace’s post:

つまり彼の国での神仙思想(道教など)の根っこは、

大陸に我が国から伝わった、トノヲシテと縄文哲学や文化であり、

1度廃れてしまったその思想を、紀元前1000年頃に、

再び復活させたのが、ウケステメさんこと「ニシノハハカミ」

そしてそれが、あまりにも素晴らしかったために、

国亡き後も、この世にはない理想郷として神話となった・・・

In other words, the root of Taoism (Shinsen thought) is To-no-Wosite and the Jomon philosophy and culture that were introduced to the continent from Japan.

Beace is stating the the root of Taoism is threefold, all stemming from the Wosite civilization:

(1) To-no-Wosite teachings

(2) Jomon-Wosite philosophy

(3) Jomon-Wosite culture
