From the time of birth to our death, there are major turning points in our life. The ceremonies introduced here are those ceremonies that are held at these critical junctures in life. There is the marriage ceremony, which is a timeless and joyous event. There are ceremonies held from the time of birth to adulthood. There is also a ceremony to celebrate longevity for those who have lived a long life.
But, the greatest ceremony is the funeral held at the end of life. The true form of all human beings is the soul, and when our life journey ends, our soul returns to Kami; and we are eventually reborn into this world through the power of Kami.
Human beings are allowed to live through the power of Kami. Shinkon, the spirit of Kami, protects and is always with us.
