also, what are the "kami principles"? anything like Zeus to human which is either crispy or extra crispy?
Well, it's like the "Peter Principles", but it wasn't a best seller.

Actually, what it says, is "make (yourself) that which give rise to Kannagara". "Kannagara" (as in "Kannagara no Michi", the "Way of the Gods") means something along the lines of "keeping the heart of the Gods" - so..."aligned with the principles of the Kami" for a more simplified representation.

Best,

Chris
