Mrs. McDevitt read Father’s speech titled “Pillars of Establishing New Cultures,” given on Friday Oct. 3, 1969. There were around 15 participants that day.
“When someone dies, where should we bury them? Have you thought about this? Why not in the ocean? Why not in the high mountain? In the high mountains, insects and wild beast are the owners there, not humans. In the deep valley there are also owners. Where do you make a cemetery? I had a dog for 13 years and where did it go (to die)? To a deep valley, not to the sea.”
(Katsumi: Father did not give a clear answer)
“After I became 13 years old, I did not allow any physiognomist to see my face because I thought ‘My time has come to meet God. God will come to my hometown to attend to me.’ Why? To establish the relationship of subjective partner and objective partners, (I thought) there was only me for God. Where did such an idea come from? That is the principle of perfecting Adam.”
“One should not have a Seunghwa ceremony after death, but a Seunghwa ceremony while living.
