The Lee-Teng-hui’s Guardian Spirit Speaks on the Truth Regarding World War II
Japan! Regain Your Samurai Spirit: A Message from the Guardian Spirit of Lee Teng-hui, Former President of the Republic of China

With an “anti-Japanese” historical perspective, China and Korea are attacking Japan. Korea especially is spreading to the world the idea how of awful Japan was during the war. They criticize that the Japanese occupation era was an act of aggression by Japan.

To stand up against Korea’s anti-Japanese diplomacy, it would be a good idea to hear what the Taiwanese who lived through the Japanese occupation era has to say. Taiwan is known as a pro-Japanese country. They along with America sent a large amount of donation to Japan when the Great East Japan Earthquake hit. What does the leader of Taiwan think of Japan then?

Master Ryuho Okawa of Happy Science Group, called forth the guardian spirit of the former President of Taiwan, Lee Teng-hui, and asked about his view on Korea’s “anti-Japanese diplomacy” and on where Japan and the world may be heading henceforth.

What are spiritual messages?

“Spiritual messages” is a phenomenon wherein the words belonging to spirits from the spiritual realm are channeled down. The ability for this belongs to those with a high level of enlightenment, and it is different from “psychic phenomenon” (the phenomenon where one loses consciousness and enters a trance, and the spirit alone talks). Further, in cases of non-Japanese spirits, it is possible to send spiritual messages by selecting words out of the spiritual medium’s native language, and thus have them understood in Japanese.

What is a guardian spirit?

The human soul is, as a principle, composed of six entities, and one of these “soul siblings” in the spiritual realm works as the guardian spirit. That is, the guardian spirit is actually a part of one’s own soul. Therefore, the “spiritual message of the guardian spirit” comes through accessing a person’s subconscious, and its content can be thought of as that person’s true thoughts in the subconscious mind. → Read More


Korea’s Anti-Japanese Diplomacy Is an “Anti-Jewish Movement”

(This book is now available at


Former President Lee Teng-hui has deep connections with Japan. He was born in Taiwan during the Japanese occupation era, and joined the Kyoto University Faculty of Agriculture in 1943. He also studied in the States. He was the President of Taiwan from 1988 to 2000.

He speaks fluent Japanese and is an author in the Japanese language. He is known as a pro-Japanese who even repeatedly has visited the Yasukuni Shrine. Towards the end of last year, when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the Yasukuni Shrine, Mr. Lee Teng-hui said, “Of course you should go pay your respects to the spirits of the leaders who gave up their lives to their country,” and that, “the visit is not a political problem, it’s a spiritual problem,” voicing his support.

Internet users in China criticized for such statements, calling him “unpatriotic”. But Mr. Lee Teng-hui’s belief seems not have waivered.

In the spiritual message this time around also, the guardian spirit of Mr. Lee Teng-hui again expressed a deep understanding of Japan.

On President Park Geun of Korea, who advances “anti-Japanese diplomacy”, the guardian spirit of Mr. Lee Teng-hui stated, “She is selfish, fickle and irrational. She just goes by her instinct. She does not have what it takes to be a President.” He went on, “If you can unite your country with anti-Japanese propaganda, how is that different from Hitler’s Naziism? Is it not the same as the anti-Jewish movement?” He thus sharply criticized how Korea was like Hitler, practicing racial discrimination against Japanese.


“Japan Was the Model of the East. It Was the Only Country to Stand Up Against the West”

Korea’s President Park Geun keeps criticizing Japan based on the perspective that “everything the Imperial Japanese force did was evil.” Was this really the case?

Mr. Lee Teng-hui, who is a “living witness” of the Japanese occupation era and the past war, has often praised the moral integrity of the Imperial Japanese Army in his writings and interviews.

On the forced entrainment of comfort women, which Korea always brings up, Mr. Lee Teng-hui has said, “There were many prostitutes in Northeastern Taiwan during the war, but many of them were Korean women. As the war escalated, and the soldiers moved south, their brothels became empty. The women then gathered in groups, and they moved to the military locations. They actively went to the battlegrounds. They were not forced.” (“SAPIO” February issue, 2014)

Mr. Lee Teng-hui has flatly denied the existence of “comfort women”. When the Japanese military became the topic of the conversation, he emphasized that “They were a beacon of virtue, just excellent,” and that the citizens and people in the colonized areas widely admired them.

He furthermore went on to state, with his voice quivering with emotion, how “only Japan was able to stand up to the West. It was the hope of Asia.”

As the guardian spirit of Mr. Lee Teng-hui said, before the Great War, the West forcibly colonized most Asian countries, with the exception of Japan and Thailand, and those places became victims of oppressive governments and unspeakable racial discrimination. Japan was the sole country to go resolutely against the West. The sight of the Japanese forces challenging the Western countries and winning in battles changed the slave mentality of Asians who viewed themselves as members of an “inferior race”.

Indeed, after the Great War ended, Asian countries won their independence. The strong spirit of independence, which the Japanese had sown, propelled Asian governments one after another. It was none other than Japan that created the great historical movement called “the liberation of Asia.”

Even though Japan had such proud achievements in the world, Mr. Lee Teng-hui’s guardian spirit talked sadly about modern Japan, which has become slavish because it has accepted a masochistic historical perspective. “I don’t want to see the Japanese always engaged in apologetic diplomacy.”

He spoke angrily about the former Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama, who started the “apologetic diplomacy”. He called Murayama “a hypocrite” and said, “you must understand that Korea, as a nation, is a scam artist.”


A Strong Japan Can Also Lift Up Taiwan

The guardian spirit of Mr. Lee Teng-hui also touched upon relations between Taiwan and Japan in his interview. For many years now, Taiwan has been carrying the political burden of whether to become independent from China. President Ma Ying-jeou of the current administration made a list of “three promises (no reunification, no independence, no use war)” regarding China, and has been making efforts to stabilize relations. However, when we look at history, it’s obvious that China already abandoned Taiwan.

When Japan won the Sino-Japanese War that occurred in 1894, the representative of Qing, Li Hongzhang, reportedly told Prime Minister Hirobumi Ito, upon the cession of Taiwan based on the Treaty of Shimonoseki:

“In three years time, there will be small turmoil; then in five years time, there will be great turmoil in Taiwan. It will become very troublesome. We no longer want such a country. We wish to give it to Japan. Does Japan want it?”
Taiwan, at the time, was riddled with many problems such as the proliferation of piracy, opium addiction, and widespread infectious disease. Qing did not know what to do. In order to lighten the burden of compensation, Li Hongzhang presented Taiwan to Japan.

Once Taiwan was in Japan’s possession, Japan transformed Taiwan into a modern nation through the construction of schools, railways, dams, the improvement of sanitary conditions, the promotion of industrialization, and with first rate personnel transfers such as Gentaro Kodama, Shinpei Goto, and Taro Katsura. Many Taiwanese, who have not forgotten these acts of assistance, have remained pro-Japanese.

However, in 1972, in order to restore diplomatic relations with China, Japan had to severe diplomatic relations with pro-Japan Taiwan. The guardian spirit of Mr. Lee Teng-hui said, “Rather than to Korea or China, (Japan) ought to apologize to Taiwan, which was abandoned.” And he went on to declare, “If Japan can become a strong nation, then Taiwan can live on with integrity,” even as it is currently in danger of China swallowing it up. He expressed hope in the “revitalization” of Japan.


Lee Teng-hui, a Christian, Questioned the Historical Perspective of the West.

Mr. Lee Teng-hui, who was a Christian, listed in his book, “Real Leader’s Requirements,” “faith” as the number one prerequisite for a leader. Precious faith can support a lonely leader. Only when a leader can put faith in an existence beyond him or herself, can a leader then overcome a crisis.

In the spiritual message, he acknowledged, “The essence of Christianity is love and faith,” and “Without love and faith, it is not the real thing.” From such a pious Christian standpoint, he urged Western nations to reflect back on history from a religious perspective, “You must think deeply whether what European countries have done really accords with love and faith in God.”

Western nations have strong tendencies to go along with China and Korea in their judgments over how “Japan ought to apologize for the wrongdoings committed during the war.” However, do those Western countries have the right to tell Japan that it should apologize?

Western countries colonized Asia and Africa, and for years they exploited them. They violated Africa’s human rights when they enslaved its black populations. No country has ever offered an apology or paid compensations for the acts of exploitation. Furthermore, no American president has ever apologized for its unethical use of nuclear weapons. It was clearly against international law to massacre Japanese civilians, but no American president has ever visited Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

In 2007, there were protests in Malaysia against Britain, calls for apologies and compensations, and Britain completely ignored them. Algeria asked for an apology from President Sarkozy, and France rejected it.

Such examples are only the tip of the iceberg, but western nations have not repented for their wrongdoings, even as they encourage Japan to apologize. There’s obviously something wrong with the historical perspective of Western nations.

To admit the legitimacy of Japan might mean that they must own up to their own wrongdoings, because right now they are going against “the righteousness of God and Buddha”.

The time has come for the West to heed the words of Mr. Lee Teng-hui seriously, to look back on its history based on “the righteousness of God and Buddha”, and to repent.

The guardian spirit of Mr. Lee Teng-hui also spoke on the points listed below:

  • His evaluation of Prime Minister Abe’s visit to Yasukuni Shrine
  • His thinking on the use of “the right to collective self-defense,” which parliament has been discussing

  • His view on China’s President Xi Jinping
  • His opinion on America’s announcement to “stop being the world’s policeman”
  • On the failure of America’s foreign policy, which has led to the bloating of Communism
  • On France, and the French Manga festival, where Koreans promoted a “comfort women comic”
  • Mr. Lee Teng-hui’s “requirement for international persons to become cultured” (He was proficient in both Japanese and English)
  • His “testament” to Japan after it experienced defeat in the Great War
  • His message, and his idea for Taiwan’s proper path

Mr. Lee Teng-hui also revealed that he was born in China, England, and Japan in his past lives. When he was born in England, he was an active leader for revolution in religion. In Japan, he was a famous model of bushido, and in China, he was a high official in the Three Kingdoms era.

Much may be learnt from Mr. Lee Teng-hui’s spiritual message for the awakening of a proud Japan.
