BEN FULFORD : Updated background briefing on the Yatagarasu or Three Legged Crow Japanese secret society
Notice to readers, this week marks the beginning of my annual one month break from the internet. For that reason, until the August 25th edition, reports will cover topics that are not time sensitive.
The Three Legged Crow is an ancient Japanese secret society based in Kyoto, Japan. The legend has it that a crow with three legs guided the first inhabitants to the Japanese archipelago. For this reason, the three legged crow is an important symbol in ancient Japanese Shinto.
The leaders of this secret society cover their faces in black masks before giving orders to Yakuza gangsters, politicians and others. In addition, people belonging to certain bloodlines associated with the Yatagarasu do not register their births with the government. They are also given a special education based on Tibetan Buddhism and esoteric Shinto.
This writer was taken to a Yatagarasu initiation ceremony that used to be reserved only for Emperors. The Japanese imperial family stopped attending these ceremonies after Japan became a colony in the Meiji era.
Everybody participating in the ceremony dressed in pure white kimonos. Only the presiding Shinto priest wore purple with his white. This is interesting because purple is the colour traditionally associated with Roman Emperors and Egyptian Pharaoh’s. The members of the Japanese imperial family that this writer has met claim to be of Egyptian origin. More about that later but for now let us return to the ceremony.
The ceremony involved
using a flint to create sparks while we chanted from an ancient text. The chant was a set of basic social rules the Emperor was supposed to enforce against incest and other forms of social degeneration.
While the chant was going on, I heard voices that spoke said to me, in ancient Japanese: “You have no ancestors here, what have you come to do?” My answer was, “I am here to correct the bad things my ancestors did to your people.” Some other people in the room reported seeing a bright white light while I experienced this. Others say they saw nothing but people chanting and bowing. I am sure I did not imagine what I experienced and believe the entities that contacted me accepted my answer.
While visiting the research institute where this ceremony took place, I was told that the family that ran the place had been hereditary teachers of ancient knowledge for thousands of years. The teaching is based on Mandalas. Each Mandala consists of many, many, interconnected pictures and takes at least two years to learn.
Here is a link to pictures of some of the mandalas and of the research institute:
On a different occasion, I was invited by the Yatagarasu to speak at an event in Kyoto. When I got into the taxi at the Kyoto station taxi stand, I noticed the driver had a three legged crow on his key chain. He said it was just a coincidence. Also, before going to Kyoto, I had been asked by somebody associated with the Sokka Gakkai Buddhist sect to buy a traditional Japanese jacked with the symbol 誠 makoto, which means sincere, honest, from the heart. This was the symbol used by the Shinsen gumi, the last group that fought against the colonization of Japan during the Meji era.
The Sokka Gakkai are behind the Komeito Party within the ruling Japanese government coalition. They also control the Japanese police and have a large presence in the Japanese military. They used to be linked to the Nichiren school of Buddhism that adapted some aspects of monotheism, such as helping the poor and the suffering, as part of an effort to defend Buddhism from Christianity.
Another encounter I had with the Yatagarasu came through contact with an elderly gentleman who resided in Inokashira Park, in Tokyo. He was a retired professor of evolution who chose to live in the park in order to be close to nature. He knew all the crows in the park and said they were divided into five tribes. He could recognize the leaders of each tribe. He also befriended and protected a crow that was not part of any tribe.
He could also communicate with a king fisher. He told me the bird was unable to find a bride and would be leaving soon in search of one. Shortly after he told me this, the bird stopped appearing at its usual spot.
This sort of deep connection with the natural world and ability to communicate with non-human beings is an essential part of the ancient knowledge of Shinto. Some make claims to be able to use eagles to see from great heights by telepathically accessing their minds.
One person I met claims her aunt, who had just finished a nasty divorce, decided to kill her ex-husband by using an ancient curse. For two months she chanted a certain chant at a specific time and, on the appointed day, her uncle died.
Other heirs to this tradition I have met claimed the ability to see entities that most of us cannot see. These people who make these claims have yellow eyes, similar in colour to the semi-precious stone tiger eye. It would be interesting to try to scientifically test such people and see if they have the ability to see parts of the electromagnetic spectrum most of us cannot see.
At a different occasion I was invited to participate in a ceremony where they attempted to invoke the Goddess Amaterasu.
The participants all wore yellow paper headbands covered with some form of unknown writing and chanted. At a certain point I heard a female voice with a very peculiar accent saying she was too shy to physically manifest but that she wished the Japanese people would be well behaved. Again while many people claimed to have heard this voice, a friend of mine who was there heard nothing.
What is interesting about the Japanese royal family claims to be Egyptian in origin is that they practice certain ceremonies to invoke entities much in the same way as ancient European/Egyptian/Babylonian cults like the P2 Freemasons and Illuminati do.
Japanese Shinto also carries out ceremonies of a sort that have gone extinct in ancient Egypt. For example, in ancient Egypt, gaudy shrines were kept inside the temples and, once a year, they were taken out and paraded around before being returned to the temple. This practice ended when the Persian empire invaded Egypt and destroyed all the shrines. The Japanese still carry out this ritual. So do the Catholics.
It makes sense if you think about it. Egyptian pharaohs had many wives and many children but only one could inherit the throne. Many a younger son must have embarked with a few hundred followers in an effort to found their own kingdom. It appears some of them ended up in Japan. They have kept alive ancient non-scientific “magic” technology. Since I have been trained in the scientific method, I would like very much to see rigorous scientific investigation of this.
