    Onisaburo Deguchi (1871-1948) was one of active figures in Oomoto religious movement in Japan. In 1898, he got acquainted with Nao Deguchi, founder of Oomoto religion, and soon became one of her leading followers. Onisaburo Deguchi’s the author of numerous publications, including the 81-volume work Reikai Monogatari (霊界物语?). He was engaged in many fields of art, creating paintings, sculptures, calligraphy works, and ceramics. One of the key points of his teaching was close connection between art and religion, as well as the positive influence that works of art have on the world. During his life, Deguchi upheld pacifist views, dressed himself in richly decorated clothing of his own embroidery, and posed as different Buddhist or Shinto deities. When Oomoto religion was persecuted by the Japanese government, he spent almost seven years (1935-1942) in prison... In the West, Deguchi was first and foremost famous by the influence he exerted on Morihei Ueshiba, founder of the Japanese martial art of Aikido, whom he first met in 1919.

Today, there are both supporters and opponents of troubled warnings: the former monitor the aggravating climatic situation in the world, draw conclusions and attempt to sound the alarm, whereas the latter are persistently unwilling to notice anything and turn their backs on the problem, suspecting somebody of “having dividends” on the panic. As for me, since I am the editor of www.rgdn.info and regularly let enormous strata of relevant information through my consciousness, I surely belong to the former. And this is exactly the reason why I’m preparing this new material.

It turns out Virgin Mary is revered in Japan. You didn’t know, did you? Me neither, until I accidentally saw her image on the web. I set myself the task, found more images, and then decided to publish my image collection on the website.

She is very sweet, isn’t she? In Japanese images of Our Lady there are no features of sorrow, pain or bitterness as in the images usual for Catholic and Orthodox traditions. Only gentleness, touching tenderness and boundless love radiate from these simple Oriental scenes.
