Text Oracles of the three deities Amaterasu ômikami, Hachiman Daibosatsu, and Kasuga Daimyôjin. According to legend, the oracles appeared on the surface of the pond at Tôdaiji in Nara during the Shôô era (1288-1292). The oracles came to form the basis of moral teachings concerning pureness of mind, honesty, and benevolence, and also contributed to the formulation and spread of Shinto doctrine.
