Prompt start thereafter, until finished,

Senshin no Gyo is a ceremony that serves as a cleansing of the mind and body at the beginning of the new year. As Shinichi Tohei Sensei explains here, there are 2 primary points to the training:
  1. “If we are able to maintain calmness at our one point, no matter how challenging our situation may be, with training and experience we are able to go through it effortlessly;”  and
  2. “In welcoming a New Year, the icy water helps wash away all the events that have happened in the past year, whether they may have been good or bad.”

  1. However, if you do this with oneness of mind and body, you will find it easier than you think. Everyone who practices this says, “Before doing Senshin no Gyo, I thought it would be very difficult. But after I set my mind and did it, I could do it easily.”
