Yasuaki Deguchi: The Omoto Religion and Aikido (10)

In 1973 I was appointed to the position of Saishi. This position required membership in the Saikyo-in and was always someone from the Deguchi family, which in the Omoto Order held a status similar to that of the Japanese Imperial family in Japan. The responsibilities of the position included handling Shinto ceremonies, studying the doctrine and canon of the Order, and working to establish and maintain a philosophy of teaching appropriate to the precepts of the Order.
