Every day of her childhood her father told her to be proud and live a life of dignity as a descendent of the royal lineage of Koguryo. She actually inherited the talents of the Kings of Koguryo and she used to talk naturally to flowers and trees, and prayed for peace day after day.
The interruption of the stream of Koguryo’s history had passed on to her such irresistible grievances that she was almost made to die of deep despair and pain, felt both spiritually and physically. When she encountered Mr. Tadamitsu Saito by chance, her life was miraculously saved, she recovered from a fatal disease, and drew back from the mental abyss. Based on this marvelous experience, she started to learn in depth a way to live a truly healthy life, which could be followed by anybody else. Then she understood that things happening internally and mentally are essential, and the key to success in one’s life, and she found that the scope of her activities was global.
