Onisaburo Deguchi (1871-1948), japanese spiritual teacher and co-founder of the religious Oomoto movement.
Onisaburo Deguchi was born with the name Kisaburo Ueda in 1871, in Kyoto Prefecture's Kameoka City. He passed away on January 19, 1948, at the age of seventy-eight.
From a young age Onisaburo was recognized as a prodigy, and he displayed extraordinary psychic abilities.
Onisaburo emphasized that "Art is the mother of religion; art gives birth to religion." He further explained: "The God who created the great infinite cosmos must be the Great Artist. The driving force to create heaven and earth is the germination of the Great Artist's seed."
Despite his ascension, Onisaburo is still active as the Mizu-Soul. In fact, his greatest legacy, The Reikai Monogatari (Tales of the Spiritual World), continues to provide spiritual insights into how humanity should worship the Great Original Deity of the Universe (alias Kamususanowo-no-okami) under whatever circumstances.
Anecdote has it that Onisaburo turned his naked bottom on the Moon because he felt sorry for his anus and wanted to show it something beautiful! He's just too much, isn't he? :-)
