Shinto Shuseiha
   'Shinto Cultivation Group'. An association founded in 1873 by Nitta, Kuniteru (1829— 1902) for the purpose of worshipping Amaterasu, the kami of heaven, and the kami of earth, the triad who figure in the Kojiki account of creation. The teachings reflected a strongly Neo-Confucian outlook, emphasising spiritual and mental cultivation in accordance with the Five Relationships in order to make a positive contribution in the world. It was recognised as a sect immediately following the new Meiji legislation of 1876.
