akaki 赤衣

red clothes (Of, D, L)


“What do you think of these red clothes? Tsukihi dwells within” (Ofudesaki VI:63).

“Oyasama began to wear red clothes, which was unusual for the time, to persuade people by this visual symbol that She was truly the Shrine of Tsukihi.” (The Doctrine of Tenrikyo, p. 9).

“By changing the word Kami (God) to Tsukihi (Moon-Sun) and by having Oyasama wear red clothes, God made the truth of Oyasama being the Shrine of Tsukihi clearer and more visible.” (The Life of Oyasama, p. 93).
