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).

“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).
