red clothes (Of, D, L)


このあかいきものをなんとをもている なかに月日がこもりいるそや 六 63
What do you think of these red clothes? Tsukihi dwells within. Ofudesaki VI : 63

赤衣を召されたのも、教祖が月日のやしろにおわす真実を、眼に示して納得させようとの思召からである。
“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).

これからは常に赤衣を召され、そのお召下ろしを證據守りとして、弘く人々に渡された。これは、一名々々に授けられるお守りで、これを身につけて居ると、親神は、どのような悪難をも祓うて、大難は小難、小難は無難と守護される。
“From that time on, Oyasama always wore red clothes. After She had worn the clothes, they were cut into small pieces and given to many people as the Proof Amulet.” (The Life of Oyasama, p. 93).
