Pray chants (NORITO)
Why are the NORITO is different by people or by organizations?
Chanting NORITO taught by shrine or some seminars does not feel good.
It was this kind of content.
I cannot make up my mind whether or not to tell the story behind NORITO which shrine adopted or each individuals is telling.
By learning KOSHINTO of OKINAWA, as knowing the animism of very old era, I become convicted of a fact.
What I can write down here, is to be careful of NORITO adopted on Internet or shrine.
And to immediately stop chanting NORITO told by individuals.
NORITO is written in KANJI, 宣命体, from the past.
In studying process of SHINTO priest, there is NORITO writing.
SHINTO priests can arrange freely.
And some families in the Shinto, they whom individually telling are also arranging NORITO freely.
Many might know that XXX family has its original NORITO.
It is said NORITO comes from FUTONORIGOTO, YAMATOHIMENOMIKOTO.
The original is OOHARAE, or said to be NAKATOMINOHARAI.
If you chant, this will take about 10 minutes and it is very long NORITO in KOSHINTO.
Even if it is long, chant with your heart.
You might feel something.
