Shinto Theology

Shinto Ethics
Shinto is an all-pervading indefinable way which is quite universal. Shinto or Kaminomichi or the way of the Kami or the Gods is the name of the religion observed by the Japanese from time immemorial. ‘Kami’ means God or deity, or sometimes soul. Shinto implies spontaneous following of the ‘Way of the Gods’. Shinto is not really an ‘ism’. It is only a teaching. It is not a set of verbal theories or concepts. It is the all-pervading way. It is very difficult to translate ‘Shinto’ into English. ‘Shinto’ means ‘The way of the Gods’ or the ‘God-like way’ or ‘The way from the Gods’. There is no proper equivalent for the term ‘Shinto’ in English. Shinto is an all-pervading, indefinable way which is quite universal. Shinto is divided into two classes, viz., the Sectarian Shinto, which is sub-divided into 13 sects; and the Shinto of the national faith of the Japanese, or the State Shinto Religion. A perfect understanding of Shinto will enable one to have proper understanding of the Japanese nation and their culture. There is neither much grand philosophy nor complicated ritual in Shintoism. Shinto is not a religion adopted by the State. It is a religion of the heart. Shinto is a natural and real spiritual force which pervades the life of the Japanese. Shinto is a creative or formative principle of life. The Shinto principle is the background of Japanese culture, code of ethics, fine arts, family and national structure.

SHINTOISM The above picture shows an archway into a Shinto shrine. This is known as a torii, symbolizing the border between the human and kami world. Shintoism is a Japanese religion that came from the indigenous people of the country. Beginning in the late fourth century B.C., it has no founder or doctrine. The beliefs of this religion center on being one with nature. Members of the Shinto belief worship the kami, who include native deities (including emperors and heroes), spirits of nature, and mythical objects. Shintoism is divided into four main forms: Koshitsu, Shuha, Folk, and Jinja.
  • Koshitsu- Shinto standing for the Shinto of the Imperial House. It is a general term for rites that the emperor performs. Shuha- Classified into two categories: Sect and New Sect. Each group has a founder and its own doctrines, which goes against mainstream Shintoism. Folk- Practiced more by commoners; inseparable from the Jinja Shinto Jinja- means shrine; refers to Shinto who worship in shrines, as a community of locals or kin, and perform their activities or rites together; known as the core of Shintoism

Brief history of Shinto:
Shinto is an ancient Japanese religion. Starting about 500 BCE (or earlier) it was originally "an amorphous mix of nature worship, fertility cults, divination techniques, hero worship, and shamanism." Its name was derived from the Chinese words " shin tao " ( "The Way of the Gods" ) in the 8th Century CE. At that time: The Yamato dynasty consolidated its rule over most of Japan. Divine origins were ascribed to the imperial family. Shinto established itself as an official religion of Japan, along with Buddhism The complete separation of Japanese religion from politics did not occur until just after World War II. The Emperor was forced by the American army to renounce his divinity at that time. Unlike most other religions, Shinto has no real founder, no written scriptures, no body of religious law, and only a very loosely-organized priesthood.
Shinto beliefs:
Shinto creation stories tell of the history and lives of the "Kami" (deities). Among them was a divine couple, Izanagi-no-mikoto and Izanami-no-mikoto, who gave birth to the Japanese islands. Their children became the deities of the various Japanese clans. Amaterasu Omikami (Sun Goddess) was one of their daughters. She is the ancestress of the Imperial Family and is regarded as the chief deity. Her shrine is at Ise. Her descendants unified the country. Her brother, Susano came down from heaven and roamed throughout the earth. He is famous for killing a great evil serpent.

- Shinto accepts the material world as good, while Buddhism view the world as evil, yet both religions are practiced in Japan... and often at the same time: They celebrate weddings in Shinto "shrines", and funerals in Buddhist "temples".
- The main deity is "goddess Amaterasu"

What is Shintoism? One of the major feature of Japanese religious life is the way in which man, gods, and nature are closely interrelated on the same plane. The term god can mean kami, Buddhist divinities, or even souls of the dead. Nature stands for not only an objective and inert collection of substance, but 'the sacred rhythm of the cosmos as a living unity'. As seen in Shinto mythology, the kami express their sacredness and power through their embodiment in Nature, such as the sun, moon, wind, trees, rivers, and mountains. Both kami and man are defined in relation to Nature or as a part of Nature. Buddhism's openness to the natural world later was developed into a return to Nature by the Zen sect.
Shinto Kami
The Shinto's worship of Nature is most significantly evident in its earliest stage. In this stage, Shinto reveals an aspect of low nature religion, bearing a crude view of the world and life in animism, or animatism. The latter is a common belief among ancient cultures, in which they regard everything in Nature as animated, sentient beings like themselves. Some of the old Shinto texts tell that trees, herb, and even rocks are all endowed with the power of speech.

Chapter 27 Back to previous page S hinto, the national religion of Japan, is one of the oldest of all the world's religions. It is unlike other religions inasmuch as it is basically not a system of beliefs. It has been variously defined. Shinto is purely a Japanese religion, the origins of which are buried in antiquity. The Japanese name for their country is Nippon, which means "sun origin." Until the end of World War II, Japanese children were taught at school that the emperors were descendants of the sun-goddess, Ama-laterasu Amaterasu had allegedly given the imperial house the divine right to rule. In 1946, in a radio broadcast to the Japanese people, Emperor Hirohito repudiated his divine right to rule. Shinto's history can be divided into a number of stages. The first period was from prehistoric times to A.D. 522 when Shinto reigned supreme among the people of Japan without any serious competition. In A.D 522 Buddhism started gaining in popularity among the Japanese people. In the year 645, the Emperor Kotoku embraced Buddhism and rejected Shinto. From 800 to 1700, Shinto combined with other religions, mixing with both Buddhism and Confucianism and forming what is called

Shinto, the national religion of Japan, is one of the oldest of all the world's religions. It is unlike other religions inasmuch as it is basically not a system of beliefs. It has been variously defined. John B. Noss' definition states:
It is basically a reverent loyalty to familiar ways of life and familiar places... it is true to say that for the masses in Japan love of country, as in other lands, is a matter of the heart first, and of doctrinal substance second (John B. Noss, Man's Religions, New York: MacMillan Company, 1969, p. 316).
Clark B. Offner defines Shinto in the following manner:
Shinto denotes "the traditional religious practices which originated in Japan and developed mainly among the Japanese people along with the underlying life attitudes and ideology which support such practices." Various implications can immediately be derived from this statement of a modern Shinto scholar. First, Shinto does not refer to an organized, clearly-defined body of doctrine nor to a unified, systematized code of behaviour. The origins of Shinto are lost in the hazy mists enshrouding the ancient period of Japanese history, but from the time the Japanese people became conscious of their own cultural character and traditions, the practices, attitudes and ideology that eventually developed into the Shinto of today were already included within them (Clark B. Offner, in The World's Religions, Sir Norman Anderson, ed., Grand Rapids: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1976, p. 190).

Historical Development
Shinto retains some aspects of kami no michi, the way of the gods, observed by those who inhabited the islands in prehistory. Kami were powers that inhabited sacred places or were to be found in superior people. Ordinary people gave offerings of fruit, vegetables and wine to sacred places marked off by a Torri (gate) to express reverence for land and leaders of heaven and earth. Shinto is an ethnic religion, one belonging only to the Japanese. From prehistoric times, the Japanese worshiped kami, powers in natural phenomena. Kami could become humans and vice versa. Women served as shaman (miko). When the Koreans brought writing, books, painting and other art forms to Japan, and the Chinese brought their religious stories, the Japanese responded by collecting their own religious dramas (8th century C.E.). The early Japanese believed the islands were generated from the interaction of the male principle Izanagi (He Who Invites) with Izanami (She Who Invites). These two demiurges fished the islands out of brine. Then they produced many other Kami of natural phenomena (sun, storm, moon, etc.) A descendant of the original Kami, named Jimmu, began to dominate human affairs. Jimmu was believed to be the first

  • Name: Shintoism Founder: Shintoism does not have a founder, but it is rooted in ancient Japanese mythology and history. This history was orally transmitted between generations of Japanese people prior to the introduction of Buddhism in the sixth century A.D. Date of Birth: DNA Birth Place: DNA Year Founded: There is no exact date as to when Shintoism was founded, for it encompasses rituals and customs that began in Japan during ancient times. However, the introduction of Buddhism and Confucianism to Japan in 552 A.D. prompted the adoption of the term "Shinto" to differentiate the religious history of Japan. Sacred or Revered Texts: Kojiki (Records of Ancient Matters): 712 A.D.
    Nihongi or Nihon Shoki (Chronicles of Japan): 720 A.D.
    Engishiki or Yengishiki (Procedures of the Engi Era): 927 A.D. The Kojiki and Nihongi texts are not actually "sacred" by the traditional, religious definition. In other words, they are not comparable to the Bible for Christianity or the Torah for Judaism. However, they are useful to the Shinto religion because they contain the first comprehensive writings on the history of Japan and Japanese mythology, wherein Shintoism has its roots. The most significant myth to the Shinto religion is the creation myth, which is described in the beliefs section below.
    The volumes of the Engishiki provide details of codes, national rites, and ancient prayers (norito).

    18. Shintoism And The Land
    shintoism and the Land . In the details of its ritual functions as well, shintoismdisplays the natural simplicity of human relationship with the land.
    "Shintoism and the Land" Shintoism, the Indigenous religion of the Japanese archipelago, is intrinsically bound up with the phenomenal manifestations of the Great Nature within which we live. According to Shinto belief, Divine Beings - known as 'Kami' - make their appearance in this world amidst the natural elements of water, wood, and stone in the beautiful forms of lakes, rivers, forests and mountains. These "sacred spaces" serve as the dwelling places of Divinity and thus deserve the due respect of human society. If the utilitarian view of Nature as merely a natural resource, as simply material "stuff" to be utilized for the purposes of the human species prevails, we sadly neglect the spiritual functions of the Nature-order as habitation and instrument of Divinity. By ignoring this spiritual connection of visible Nature with the greater Whole, human society goes a long way toward cutting off its own connection with the greater Universe. In contradistinction to some faith traditions of the West, Shinto leads more towards identification with the world around us, rather than a rejection of it. Through greater and greater harmony with the universe, the true function of each individual human self is revealed. In the details of its ritual functions as well, Shintoism displays the natural simplicity of human relationship with the land. On every Shinto shrine altar are placed small containers of water and salt. Two single branches of pine complement these. The daily worship includes offerings of rice, green vegetables, nuts, fruit, fish, and rice wine, all natural produce of the land or sea. The Divine Beings residing in the midst of Nature accept its natural products as offering from our hands.
