Text (Yamazaki Ansai)
This three volume work (also known simply as the Fūsuisō) was written by Yamazaki Ansai in his later years. The text is a commentary on Nakatomi-no-harae which serves as both a compendium of Shinto thought and as most important text of Suika Shintō. Ansai wrote that people must practice harae in order to purify both their bodies and minds and, must then, devote themselves to wholeheartedly venerating the kami in order to receive the "prosperity of a proper relationship with the kami" (seishin no sachi, also shinjin) in their lives. In short, Ansai's purpose in writing this book was to make his readers aware that through the practice of harae one can attain a "unity of kami and human" (tenjin yuiitsu). When Ansai was near death, he entrusted Ōgimachi Kinmichi with a draft of Fūsuisō and the succession of "the correct transmission of Shintō" (Suika Shintō). Ansai also offered a revised copy of the text to Shimogoryō Shrine. The Nakatomi-no-harae fūsuisō is included in Shintō taikei, Ronsetsu-hen, Suika Shintō, Volume 1; and in Dai Nihon bunko, Suika Shintō, Volume 2 (Saeki Ariyoshi, ed.).
