Kobayashi Bigen, Koshinto Nyumon, 1998
Chapter 7 Kannagara naru Omichi he: Energy Lines pp244-249
The Author: Kobayashi Sensei was guji for 37 years. Born in Taipei in 1927, served on battleship. Attended Shinto school at Atsuta Jinja 12 years; guji at Kumano Motomiya; Omiya Jinja 11 years; Ishikiri Tsurugiya Jinja 13 years. He also spent some time in Europe but unfortunately for us, he hasn’t published in the English language. He was exceptionally knowledgeable in broad areas of sacred wisdom and philosophy, and we are trying hard to translate his works. Here is a part of the last chapter in this book. He is writing about energy lines connecting sacred places in Japan. They have something to do with how principles in the universe are reflected as patterns on earth.
On pages 245ff Kobayashi shows what he terms energy lines in Figures 26 – 31. He begins with an area centered on Awaji Shima, the legendary birthplace of Japan. See Fig. 26.
Fig. 26 shows a triangular alignment ABC, distance 160 km between apexes.
A Sengamine (mountain) Hyogo
B Tamakiyama, Nara
C Tsurugiyama, Shikoku
On those mountain tops are himorogi/iwakura from 15,000 yearso ago.
Fig. 27 is a larger region and shows a circle passing through points A, B, and D, where
D Izanagi Jingu, Awaji no Ichinomiya
Then the circle also passes through
E Ise no Naiku
G Oue Yama, Motoise Naiku
Fig. 28 is an even larger region. A star-shape is formed by connecting jinja. The lines of the star are DE, EG, GH, HF,FD. Points on the star are G F E H D, where
H Kumano Motomiya Taisha
If we extend GF to the east, we get a straight line to
J Fuji Yama
Extending to the west, our line goes to
K Izumo Taisha
Additional alignments are shown in Figs. 29 – 31 of his book, not shown here, with points L M N.
L Kushimoto Ushiyo-misaki, Wakayama
N Suwa Taisha
O Nikko Futa-areyama Jinja (Toshogu)
He mentions some names which I have not succeeded in tracking down: Nakanishi Akira, professor, who studied himorogi, iwakura; Yamada Hirokuni, shocho/manager Stock Data Systems, studied triangular alignments of shrines. Also Yamashita Hiromichi, “Haruka naru daichi Mu kara no Yogen” published by Tama Shuppan.
On p. 243, he states that we have the power to connect to energies. The ancient Japanese prevented earthquakes by praying. Their oinori saved Japan from sinking like the Mu continent. Here is a similar map we found on the Internet.
