True Happiness for Humans Is Not Obtained Through Material Things Alone

We, who are kept alive and nourished every day by the blessings of nature,
With that awareness, every month, through the altar of the church
We are holding a “thank you party” to offer prayers of gratitude to the gods and Buddha from the bottom of our hearts.

Face God, set your mind (wave) pure with God's mind as your mind,
Again, through daily life,
I will try to devote myself to the happiness of myself and others.

True human happiness does not come from material gratification alone.

When we align our minds with the workings of nature (God's will) that surpasses human power,

Even if you don't ask for it, you will naturally be blessed with happiness.

If You Can Live Your Days with Gratitude and Joy, There Will Be No Greater Happiness Than This
