This is the deity whose workings are felt throughout the entire universe and in the very lives of all human beings. This is the name of the deity that Konkokyo believers worship.
Tenchi Kane No Kami is the parent Kami of all humanity. This Kami’s love and grace has and continues to envelope all of humanity and all other forms of life, regardless if they are dead or alive.
Although the workings of Tenchi Kane No Kami extend throughout the Universe, Kami is also fostering and watching over humanity as well as other living entities. Kami’s wish is for all living things to accept and perform the role that has been allocated to them, during their lifetime and after.
The Founder (Konko Daijin) also called Tenchi Kane No Kami as “Tenchi No Kami-Sama,” “Oyagami-Sama,” “Kami-Sama,” and “Kami.” In English, our deity is called “Divine Parent of the Universe,” “Principle Parent,” “Parent Kami,” “Kami-Sama,” or “Kami.” Although a male pronoun (He) is used for linguistic convenience, it does not signify the gender of the deity.
