About Us


Shizen Kiei Kyo was established in December 1979 by Mineko Ota for the purpose of treating people who suffer from mental illness.



The state of mental confusion is regarded as the result of  losing control of the mind due to worries. If you treat this state of mind as an illness, then it will feel as if you should be restrained and that you require medicine for the illness.

However, these kinds of treatment methods do not solve the problem. For the sake of peace of mind, we realize that human beings are ephemeral creatures. We can not think about impossible things and instead we should leave it to the natural course. You can get closer to enlightenment and find a way to live happily by thinking that you are a part of nature and that you are devoted to that nature.

In this way, the base idea is the same as that of Buddhism, but it is the background of the establishment of this religious corporation that we found a methodology to ease the preaching to people that are suffering from their illness so that they become more aware of their state of mind.

If the mind is not calm or in confusion, the imbalance between the mind and the body will also diminish the power of natural healing.

In order to find the peace of mind, first take refuge in nature and then intone to find the peace of mind.

If you repeatedly intone "Shizen Kiei" (while residing in nature) three times and follow the heart of god, there is no doubt that you will be cured of your illness.

Our religion is influenced by the wisdom of Buddhism. Below are the tenets and elements of our faith:

  1. Life should be filled with smiles and gratitude. This is at the core of our doctrine and is born from the teachings of Buddhism. It's essential to maintain a heart filled with smiles and gratitude even in challenging circumstances. This perspective aligns with the wisdom of self-improvement and harmony in Buddhism, encouraging us to keep smiling and being thankful even in difficult times.

  2. Every individual should be treated with utmost care, much like customers, and their happiness should be our primary concern. Rather than pursuing financial rewards, finding joy in the happiness of others is our ultimate satisfaction. This belief is deeply rooted in the values of compassion and cooperation found in Buddhism.

  3. At the end of each day, we strive to live in a way that we could leave this world without regrets. We practice focusing on the present moment, embracing mindfulness, and walking the path of happiness.

  4. We pursue a simple and functional way of life, cutting away unnecessary clutter. Without being swayed by excess information or desires, we direct our focus to what is essential. Additionally, we concentrate on methods that contribute to the happiness of others.

  5. We independently identify what holds value for ourselves in the present moment and wholeheartedly dedicate ourselves to it. It is crucial to put in our best effort to bring happiness to others, rather than comparing ourselves to others. We dedicate ourselves to realizing the ideals we've set for ourselves.

  6. The reward for our actions lies in the happiness of others, not monetary gain. We believe that the true value is in making others happy, regardless of whether they express it. Our faith lies in our convictions and efforts.

  7. Rather than competing with others, we endeavor to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves. The reactions of others are secondary, as our top priority is to passionately pursue our ideals. We do so without belittling others, channeling our time and energy into realizing true value.
