MITAMA SHIZUME
Words to Calm the Spirit

Ametsuchi no musubi no naka ni chihayaburu
Kami no mioya no oyaoya to tsutae mashite
Chichihaha no atae tamahishi wake mitama.
Life originated with great vigor when heaven and earth took form, the genesis of the universe. The mitama of the kamisama has divided and been transmitted to us through our ancestors and parents.

Kono utsushiyo o makari naba
Towa no mitama no furusato no kami no mikado ni kaeru nari
When we pass from this visible world, we return to the resplendent abode of the kami, the origin of the enduring mitama.

Kami no mikado wa
Ametsuchi no nagaki inochi ni kotonarazu
Mimi ni kokoezu me ni mienu
Kiyoki nagisa ni shiki nami no yosuru tokoyo no kuni to yu.
The kamisama realm of eternal life remains inaudible and invisible. It is said: in the eternal land of the kamisama, waves gently lap on a beautiful, endless shore.

Tokoyo no kuni ni shirakumo no chie o oshi wake akanesasu
Hi no wakamiya ga tatsu to yu
It is said: in heaven the white clouds are pushed away, and there stands a shrine of the sun which shines a brilliant crimson color.

Hi no wakamiya no takadono ni
Yoyo no mitama wa akaru tae teru
Tae mochite mi o yosohi mizu no magatama
Torikakete yasuku odahi ni masu to yu
It is said: generations and generations of mitama radiate extraordinarily brightly, residing in the calm, tranquil sanctuary of the Sun Shrine, wearing exquisite, beautiful jewels.

Yasuku odahi ni masu koto o aogi kohinomi
Utsusomi no ware mo ukara mo hitosuji ni
We who are living in the present world
Earnestly look up in prayer, pleading for abiding peace and tranquility for the Departed.

Kami no mamichi no masamichi o ukegahi matsuri tsutsushimite
We sincerely believe in the true, straight path of the kami.

Oyako harakara mutsumajiku ie o totonoe
Mi o osame kiyoku akaruku urehinaku
Ikuru makoto o ame kakeri kuni kakerishite misonahashi
Parents and children, brothers and sisters—all strive to live clearly and brightly, in happiness and without grief. See how this truth flies through the heavens and soars across the earth!

Mitama wa takaku yasurakeku
Iya tokoshie ni shizumarite
We pray that your mitama abide nobly, in peaceful tranquility for all time.

Ie no sakae o mamori mase
Ie no sakae o mamori mase
Protect the prosperity of our livelihoods.
Protect the prosperity of our homes.

Mu jo rei ho shin ju bu gyo
Ten jo mu kyu mei un ryu sho
Bu nan nyu shin ka sho an raku
Not/above/spirit/treasure sincerity/receive/serve/go
Heaven/earth/not/distress life/fate/flourishing/bright
Not/distress/enter/kami changing/life/peaceful/ease

Myo ho ji gen dai i jin tsu riki
We follow kannagara, the way of the universe,
that the kami will manifest divine power in our being.

Harae tamae kiyome tamae mamori tamae
Sakiwae tamae terashi tamae michibiki tamae
Sweep the impurities from our being and purify our spirits
Grant us protection; grant us happiness;
Restore brightness to our spirits and give us guidance.

Sugasuga shiku sukoyaka ni
Higoto yogoto o arashime tamae
We implore the kami, that we may know health and strength, every day and every night.
