Mokichi Okada conducted research in the areas of agriculture, health, and art. He established prototypes for an ideal civilization that features gardens, nature farms, art museums, and health centers in cities around the world. He saw Purifying Therapy (PT) as a way to eliminate illness and create a better world. He has inspired a worldwide movement to create “Paradise on Earth”—
“Most people regard a world without illness, poverty and conflict as an unattainable ideal; but our movement is not afraid to say that it believes firmly in its realization. The fundamental way to create such a world is to eliminate illness.” (April 20, 1950)
How It Works: Purifying Therapy (PT) is the core of Okada’s utilization of “spiritual science.” He learned from nature that, just as our natural ecosystem cleanses itself periodically with water (rain) and wind, our body—a microcosm—also cleanses itself periodically. He believed that this cleansing process for the human being is what people call “illness,” which manifests as discomfort such as fever, pain, and stiffness. It is through illness that impure matters that have accumulated in the body over many years are eliminated. PT is based on Okada’s theory that we have life-sustaining energy because our spiritual body is combined with our physical body. Over many years of research, Okada discovered that focusing the spiritual energy available in the universe onto the affected part of the body will accelerate the dissipation of such impure matters. The transmission can be done from one person to another, or it can be self-administered. Seminars teaching the techniques are being held at various locations.
