Updated Explanation of Jashinism

Recommended Posts

Guest Lupi

Many people in life are oblivious to the suffering

of others. They do not know what pain is and yet they heartlessly inflict sorrow and grief on others. The faith of Jashinism is devoted to the enlightening of the public to the suffering they are inducing.

Jashinism is the religious practice based upon the worship of Jashin, the god of pain, death and destruction. Things that are depicted as evil by most people but that is due to nothing more than people's fears. Without these gifts the cycle of life as we know it could not exist. Followers of this faith are known as Jashinists. They believe Jashin draws energy from his followers by their acts of devotion. Jashinism is a polytheist religion that acknowledges and respects the faiths of others. They do not believe in a single omnipotent being, for if this were the case everything would be as that being wanted it. They would have created everything to be perfect. They also perceive the concept of free will as wishful thinking for once one pledges loyalty to a god or goddess they are relinquishing their freedom to serve their lord. Jashin is worshiped as a god and as a philosophy.

It is believed that Jashinism first appeared on the island Shikoku of Japan during the late Jomon period (14000 BC- 300 BC) to the early Nara period (710 AD- 794 AD). Shikoku is the smallest and least populated island of Japan. Jashinism shares many similarities to Buddhism and Shintoism. It is controversial due to its darkly oriented foundations. Jashinism was almost lost to the world due to the acts of religious rivalries. During the 1800s Jashinism began to reappear to the public. As a result, Jashinists were burned and lynched accused of being witches and devil worshipers. Religious persecution of Jashinists continues to this day and most are force to practice their faith in secret.

There are two kinds of Jashinists: Blood Bound Jashinists and Innocent Jashinists. Blood Bound Jashinists perform one of the most favoured forms of worship done through sacrificing their own blood. Blood Bound Jashinists are well educated on the human anatomy and do not intentionally do true harm to their body. Only small amounts of their blood are sacrificed. The most common ritual performed during blood sacrifices are to pray, sacrifice, then pray again. The first prayer is for a blessing on their sacrifice the second is of whatever they feel the need to pray for. The purpose of blood sacrifice is seen as some a way to help understand the physical pain that is inflicted to people. Others view it as a substitute for human sacrifices. Sacrificing was once a popular belief in almost all faiths.

Innocent Jashinists do not perform the rituals of blood sacrifice and mainly focus on understanding the emotional pain inflicted on others. They show devotion through extended prayer, fasting, meditation, etc. There are Jashinists who practice both forms of Jashinism.

Like most religions Jashinism has had a prophet. He is believed to be the founder of Jashinism and was granted immortality by Jashin for learning to understand true pain. He was eventually relieved of his immortality when his body was butchered and limbs cut off by those outside the faith. It is believed that Jashin brought his prophet to his immortal plain, where all souls sacrificed to Jashin are tormented for eternity and his followers rewarded and can even choose to be reincarnated.

Like other religions, Jashinism follows a set of commandments given to them by Jashin:

*Never inflict pain unto someone unless you have experienced that pain yourself (However by experiencing that pain you would not wish for someone else to experience that pain as you had.)

*No Earthly pleasures: sex, drugs, alcohol. (Man-made drugs used for medical purposes are fine. The use of marijuana is not prohibited for it is not a man-made drug. A romantic relationship with someone who is not a Jashinist is forbidden unless the basis of your relationship is out of love.)

*Pain equals pleasure. (Jashinist believe pain is a gift so we don't feel the damage done to our bodies. All Jashinists learn to enjoy the gift of pain or to ignore it completely.)

*Any sacrifice made must be human.

*Never leave a sacrifice alive. (This pertains to Jashin's prophet who is the only one who knows true pain. Only he is allowed to perform human sacrifice or to inflict pain on others, for he knows the difference between those who are suffering and those who abuse pain for their own benefit.)

*Once you become a Jashinist you cannot leave the faith. (The only way to leave is through suicide. By doing so you break your bonds to Jashin and your pledge of loyalty.

Some unspoken rules, though not commandments, is to respect all other Jashinists and to never use Jashin's name in vain.

To Jashinism sin is human selfishness. The selfishness of humans causes rape, theft, abuse, war, etc. Human selfishness is the cause of worldly problems and is something Jashinism is against.

Jashin's symbol represents the philosophies of Jashinism. The symbol is a downward pointing equilateral triangle inside of a circle. The spaces and lines all represent something different and relate to each other. The left line of the triangle represents life; the right death; and the top pain. the space between the left line and circle represents spirit; the right body; and the top mind. The circle represents the world and the space within the triangle represents self. Altogether it is Jashin. Mind over pain; life of spirit; death of body; all within the world around us with the self in the centre.

The ultimate goal of Jashinism is to create a world in which everyone understands and respects each other. A world where everyone, in some form or fashion, everyone is a Jashinist. A world without pointless suffering inflicted by those who do not understand its implications and consequences whether out of ignorance or done intentionally. A world of peace ruled by Jashin.

It is believed by some that once he has gathered enough followers and has accumulated enough strength he will manifest himself on Earth and bring his world of peace into being.

A common misconception that plagues the Jashinist faith is that this prophet was Hidan. Hidan is a character of a Japanese animation named “Naruto Shippuden”, originally a manga written by Masashi Kishimoto. He was portrayed as a ‘Jashinist’ very inaccurately. He was a brutal, sadomasochist and was a warped, extremist version of what should not be considered a Jashinist. Many fans of this character created crude websites of what they believed to be Jashinism, based off of what they saw from the show. These websites misinform those researching Jashinism and stain the true religion’s reputation and information available. Furthermore, the injustice to those seeking to practice the religion is done by fans of this character attempting to imitate him. Fans of Hidan claiming to be Jashinists, commonly referred to as ‘hidanists’ by those of the Jashin faith, who post ridiculous ‘facts’ and ‘rules’ of the religion negatively impact so many new Jashinists. Because of these websites and ‘hidanists’ people who are opposed to the religion harass Jashinists with claims that it is made up by Masashi Kishimoto or by the fans of Naruto Shippuden because of the inaccurate research they conduct on Jashinism.

      Erikka,   It's amazing to me how much in common we all have here. I did a similar thing to my across the street neighbors, by firing up my Harley inside the garage acting like an amphitheater to their bedrooms. I don't mind a Friday or Saturday party in the hood, but weeknights need to have a respectable quiet hour.   Have a great day,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      Good morning all. I used to drink two or three 20oz triple red eyes daily until my doctor asked me if I was attempting suicide by caffeine. Now I drink 8oz in the morning and occasionally a 16oz red eye when out and about with DD1. Behind the house I shared with my ex was a rental house that was always rented out to college students. One night their party was sooooooo frickin’ loud that even the dog was not happy. Their party died about 3 am and when I got up at 5 am to go to work I did wheel my 100 watt Marshall stack out to the back deck, cranked it to the max and serenade the neighbors with the intro to “Iron Man”. Wheeled back into my studio and end to work.

      Good morning everyone,   Yesterdays therapy session was very good, and filled with tips on how to bring my wife up to speed on my push to open the closet door. She and I sat at the dinner table last evening talking about my pinned up emotions, the tough man who consoles everyone else with positive motivation, hides and doesn't take my own advice. She said that the world she knows, sees me as this happy go luck guy ready to cheer anyone up with a smile and quick witted quote. Never suspecting I was really spending my alone time sad, afraid, and hidden. I told her I was about to show her the depth of my true emotions, and as side of me that I hope will not run her off. I kept reinforcing that my long term goal is for us to continue to grow old together. That made her laugh because we're both in our mid 60's and make noises when we stand up from the arm chairs. I'm still a few weeks from coming out to her... It won't be long and then we'll see if it's a smooth slow ride into transition or an explosive I'm out of here reaction.   >Hugs< and love for everyone,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      Hi Kathryn, and welcome! You've found a great place to start.  This Forum and the Members have been the source of great encouragement and information.   I am going through similar issues with my wife, but everybody's situation is different.  Mine is a bit of a roller coaster. My intent is to get therapy for myself first, and then be open and patient with my wife.  If my marriage is worth saving, then its worth that investment in time and patience.   Hoping for the best outcome for you and your family❣️

      I only ever take my forms off to bathe, or work. I sleep with mine and depending on the bra, they are fairly comfortable and stay in place all night. Even with my tossing and turning! Lol. I hope to start HRT soonish and start growing my own, but for now, I am satisfied with my forms. I want to get another pair so I dont wear out the good pair I have.

      Thats where the UTx would be required. If the organ that produces hormones is available, the active gene uses it to prodice its intended hormone. Wether it be testes or ovaries, the gene is what decides which hormone to produce.

      Wonder how it went for you Shawna? I was awake when mine was done, I recall crunching up on my elbows and saying "Bye Fellas!" The little nurse holding onto the little fella to keep it out of the way of the laser knife chuckled. The surgeon asked me why I had said that and I said it had been the hard drive for some very naughty past behavior. Total elapsed time was 43 minutes start to finish.    Get several bags of frozen peas, keep it cool and get well. You'll be doing kip-ups in no time!

      I didn’t start wearing bras until I actually had something to put in a bra. Since then I morphed from feeling sad to take it off to go to bed to ditching it when I get home. At first I wouldn’t leave the apartment without a bra but even that has changed now quite often I will walk to mailbox , take out the garbage or pop over to the neighbors sans bra and not get embarrassed that my nipples are quite noticeable under my T-shirt or tank top. But then again I live in the Emerald Triangle, a land that is a bit stuck in the ‘70’s, a place of hippies and Humboldt Honeys.

      Hi Janae  Well, you nailed this one on the head.  By time we finished dinner I could tell it was no longer a positive experience for both of us.  I think she let all the possibilities of what could happen next to roll around in her head and she closed down.  I think we both went to bed a bit depressed last night. This was the response I was worried about.  It was almost like I was Coming Out a second time.  Almost like she had come to think my gender dysphoria was a passing fantasy, and now she had to face it again (although it had never gone away). As much as I prefer the "open communication" approach my wife does not really handle it very well .. that's our history. This morning she told me she didn't want to talk about it and needed some time ... so its a little bit (actually a lot) tense right now, but I think/hope she will open up again.  She did reaffirm that she supported me going to therapy .. but she pulled back on ever participating.    Not knowing how your wife handles these topics I cannot give you advice on how to proceed based on how this went over with my wife. I almost regret telling her now about wanting therapy, but it was going to have to be addressed sometime, just for my own mental health.  But her delayed reaction and pain is hard for me to watch.  For now, I am just going do what I can to reassure her and to wait and see what happens after I start therapy.  thank you for the support and encouragement❣️

      I find the hormones to be liberating. Yes there are days that I get weepy over seemingly trifle things. But on the whole I love the way the hormones have given me the ability to react to life in a way that seems so authentic. As a man I had to walk a tightrope, skirt minefields and walk on eggshells around emotions that made being a member of the boys club closed to me because I was too girl like in my feelings. Now I just go with the emotions.  No longer have to constantly police myself to “fit” in. Viva  la hormones.

      Correction: Just heard from Angela, She's listed as pre-op call as of 6:35 am her time. My bad.
    • Dana Michelle
      If altering the gene causes the testicles to produce estrogen, how would it work on someone with full bottom surgery? With full bottom surgery, the testicles are removed.
    • Patti Anne
      Okay....... Shawna was wheeled into the OR at about 8:32am East Coast time. Angela said that she was nervous, but who wouldn't be? No reports yet after that. She's been in the OR for about 50 minutes and the procedure is scheduled for about 2 hours, assuming no surprises.   Fingers crossed!
