Gedatsu is a religious study whose ultimate objective is to render the state of supreme spiritual awakening or enlightenment to all who sincerely practice its teaching. Literally meaning 'to undo', Gedatsu is the means by which we can be freed from the bonds of negative human karma and attain true peace of mind. 
The centric sacred object of worship of the Gedatsu Church is the source of the Universal Life Force. All things derive their life from this one creative principle. Followers of the Gedatsu teaching strive to cultivate spiritual awareness of this divine source of life by worshipping God, thus strengthening our spiritual character and understanding of the commonality of all creation. 
The Church's originator and founder, Gedastu Kongo, taught that our everyday life is religion itself, and that life's problems serves as a means of purifying and strengthening our spiritual character. We truly accept this attitude in life; there is no justification for complaint or argument.

At the heart of Gedatsu teaching is reverence to God and respect toward ancestors. Gedatsu emphasizes the importance of recognizing the profound and immeasurable blessing we receive from five sources: country, parents, teachers, society, and all living things. Since these favors are fundamental to our existence, it is vital that we express our gratitude for these blessings in our everyday living.
All religions of the world share a common aspiration to affect human salvation. Gedatsu takes a nonsectarian approach in solving the problems confronting each of us. No matter what our faith, we will find that Gedatsu can help in solving our everyday problems and deepening our understanding and ability to use the power of religion.

Amacha Kuyo is a unique characteristic and service of the Gedastu Church in which we dedicate our sincere blessing for all souls of the universe. This is accomplished daily by pouring nectar tea (Amacha) on the Kuyo-To, an octagonal stupa, on which all souls are invited to receive the blessing. Incantation and prayer, when given properly and earnestly before the altar, is the method through which we may channel universal power to others who are in need.

The Gedatsu Church exists for the spiritual development of all people. We encourage you to pursue this way of Gedatsu to illuminate within yourself your divine intellect and employ the method of self-realization and self-purification, increase your mental and spiritual faculties and enjoy a life which is filled with joy, hope, and peace.
