    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.
