In order to achieve a meaningful inner-self development, Reiyukai advocates the importance of improving one’s relationship with their parents and ancestors. Through the daily action of honoring your ancestors and nurturing your relationship with them, one can realize the good aspect as well as the aspects that can be improved upon within themselves.
Besides learning about your own roots and about who you are from your parents and ancestors, Reiyukai also proposes members to establish an environment where they can care for and learn from others, by creating a circle of fellowship. Sharing life experiences and reflecting your action and thoughts with other people within the group, makes one’s inner-self development even more significant. Thus, the action of making small but meaningful positive changes, leads to a development of oneself which in turn brings improvement to the community.
