Words to Remember for Life
Tolstoy’s spiritual message on August 24th, 2012

After the recording, we have given the foreword and afterword from Master Ryuho Okawa for the publication in Japan.



Tolstoy is a leading Russian literary figure, but his impression on modern day youth is fading. Contemporaries around the world revered the image of the venerable Tolstoy that tilled the earth like a god, and there were many who tried to seize his every word like a biblical text. That his great light could not illuminate the darkness of the Soviet Union’s politics, economy, and military, and created left-leaning religious men and women could only be described as a historical irony.

I, too, am at a loss to describe the Soviet Union’s demonic rule. The world knows of Stalin’s Great Terror, Solzhenitsyn’s “The Gulag Archipelago”, the prosperity of Japan’s leftist intellectuals, and the mass media.

I pray that the publication of this book rekindles a sacred light in Russia, restores its friendship with Japan through the “Truth”, and creates a world in which the land is bathed in the light of God.

I, myself, am one who, with a sense of reality, knew about the existence of devils through Tolstoy’s Folktales in my youth.

Now, bearing Gandhi and Tolstoy’s accomplishments in mind, to what extent the ninth dimension spirits will be able to fulfill their missions in present day earth is a major issue for me. I, too, am a religious leader who will soon have published over a thousand books. I have hundreds of millions of readers worldwide, and passionate believers exist in about one hundred countries. I plan to continue my preaching tours throughout Japan and all around the world.

So as not to allow Tolstoy’s words, “Walk in the light there is light” to sound empty, I would like to finish the remainder of my life as a light that drives away the darkness. I hope from the bottom of my heart to be able to create waves of love and peace, which will greatly transcend, while at the same time integrate, religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Japanese Shintoism.
