God the Parent
• Tenrikyō

We refer to God the Parent as Tenri-Ō-no-Mikoto. God the Parent is God of Origin, God in Truth. “God of Origin” means that “God” refers to the Origin from which humankind and the world emanated-the giver of life for the whole of creation including humanity. “God in Truth” indicates that “God” refers to Reality, apart from which nothing exists and which is therefore present within human bodies also. Thus God provides for all. Indeed, God is the Parent who gave birth to us and who sustains and nurtures us.

God the Parent, Tenri-Ō-no-Mikoto
• Tenrikyō

God the Parent, whom we address as “Tenri-Ō-no-Mikoto” in our prayers, is God of Origin, God in Truth....

“God of Origin, God in Truth” is an explanatory term indicating certain aspects of God the Parent.... We call God “God the Parent” not only because God is the Parent who created and has nurtured and provided for humankind and the world but also because God's parental love is so great that we can directly bare all our feelings–whether of joy or of sorrow–to God and completely rely on God.

God is Our King and True Parent
• Rev. Sun Myung Moon
• The Unification Movement

Adam and Eve should have avoided the fall and reached completion, forming one mind and one body as true parents centering on God, their True Parent. Instead, they entered into a relationship with the enemy and found themselves in a position with their body in total control of their mind.

True Love and True Marriage
• Rev. Sun Myung Moon
• The Unification Movement

We can receive the seeds of true love only by receiving the true Holy Blessing from the horizontal True Parents [the Rev. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon]. They come as substantiations of God, the vertical True Parent, and thereby engraft us into God's lineage.

• Baháʾuʾlláh (Bahāʾ Allāh)
• Quoted by Shoghi Effendi
• The Promised Day is Come

Say: O concourse of bishops! Trembling hath seized all the kindreds of the earth, and He Who is the Everlasting Father calleth aloud between earth and heaven. Blessed the ear that hath heard, and the eye that hath seen, and the heart that hath turned unto Him Who is the Point of Adoration of all who are in the heavens and all who are on earth.

• Matthew 6:7-15
• Reported Words of Jesus
• New Revised Standard Version

Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

• Ephesians 3:14-19
• Paul
• New Revised Standard Version

I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Spirit of Shakti
• Nicky Jacobson

Shakti [Śaktī, Sanskrit for ability or power] in the Hindū concept is the active and dynamic principal of feminine power sometimes referred to as the Divine Mother. Shakti is the mother goddess, the source of all, the universal principal of energy, power or creativity.

Kālī the Mother, page 19
• Sister Nivedita (Margaret E. Noble)

it is in India that this thought of the mother has been realised in its completeness. In that country where the image of Kālī [Sanskrit for black one] is one of the most popular symbols of deity, it is quite customary to speak of God, as “She,” and the direct address then offered is simply “Mother.”
