O Sensei Nakazono explains the treasured Takeuti documents from Japan, which reveal the ancient history and future implications of human civilization. By masterfully connecting the current of ancient times to the present day situation, O Sensei explains how the 50 sound rhythms of the Kototama Principle are key to moving humanity forward into the higher order of the third civilization. 

This is the author's most current explanation of the Kototama Principle and ancient world history. The origin of our present, materialistic civilization (Amatsu Kanagi) is explained as revealed in the ancient Takeuti Documents of Japan, which have been guarded by chief priests for thousands of years in the oldest shrine in Japan, Koso Kotai Jingu (excerpts included). They record a time when "god-men,"  those who had perfected a complete, direct knowledge of the Kototama Principle, the highest way of life, hid the principle from mankind in order to be able to develop the present civilization. Now the time has come to move into the third civilization (Amatsu Futonorito), and the hidden secrets are finally being disclosed to this generation. These documents show that the totality of human capacity can be achieved through complete understanding of the  fifty sound rhythms of the Kototama Principle.

About the author:

Born in May 1918 in Southern Japan, Kagoshima District, Sensei Nakazono began his studies by practicing kendo at the age of 6, judo at 12, and karate at 19. Later he studied many other forms of martial arts; then fully immersed himself in the art of Aikido, learning directly from O Sensei Ueshiba, its founder.

Following his mother’s inclination, Sensei Nakazono began his formal studies of acupuncture in 1934 at age 16. He was a student of George Ohsawa, the founder of macrobiotics, and Sakai Sensei, who taught the spirit of finite form, Jizo Bosatsu.

​He was re-introduced to the Kototama Principle by Sensei Ogasawara, and revised every aspect of his life and work from this profound viewpoint. In 1972 he moved to Santa Fe, where he established the Kototama Institute to teach Aikido, natural therapy, and the Kototama Principle. He inspired the passage of the New Mexico Acupuncture Act in 1973, and was honored as “A Living Treasure” in Santa Fe, New Mexico in July of 1984.

​Sensei Nakazono taught the Kototama Principle in Santa Fe and throughout the world. He devoted his life to handing it over for the sake of all humanity. His books  embody his teachings, great vision and compassion for  mankind. He passed over on October 8, 1994.
