Prayer application

Yakuyoke

The notion of the critical age is an outcome of our ancestors' wisdom developed over a long period of time and through experience. The critical age may refer to a mental and physical turning-point, or to a time for taking a break in a person's life. The prayer services for warding off evils are offered as the “Compass” for your life, to promote your well being at this turning point in life.
