I created this site to share this most amazing prayer to heaven.  If practiced and said correctly can help cleanse and purify your spirit.  I want to give a special thanks to Stephen Comee for helping me with many corrections, translation, and details about the prayer and Amaterasu.  I also want to thank all those that encouraged me to say it by sharing their experiences.  Thank you.  Jeff Krantz

Amatsu Norito means Prayer of Heaven.

As you say these words or listen on the right to the latest audio clip, visualize a golden ball of light coming through the top of your head and slowly moving down through the base of your spine as you continue to chant or listen.

In your mind, ask for something you wish to be healed for you or someone far away.

Raise your head, clap three times, bow and offer personal prayers. After praying, raise your head, clap three times, bow twice with hands together, and then bow.

Bow once, bow twice with hands together, then clap three times and bow again with hands together.

Now, keeping hands together while raising your head, recite:

Taka-ma-ga-hara ni kanzu-mari masu

高天原に神留り坐す

Kamurogi Kamuromi no mikoto mochite

神魯伎神魯美の詔以て

Sume-mi-oya kamu Izanagi-no-Mikoto

皇御祖神伊邪那岐大神

Tsukushi no Himuka no Tachihana no

筑紫の日向の橘の

恐み恐みも白す
