Tenets

The tenets are the most important and core teachings and the right directions which lead to the aims of Daesoon Jinrihoe.

Virtuous Concordance of Yin and Yang (Eumyang-hapdeok) Harmonious Union between Divine Beings and Human Beings (Sinin-johwa) Resolution of Grievances for Mutual Beneficence (Haewon-sangsaeng) Perfected Unification with Dao (Dotong-jingyeong)
Virtuous Concordance of Yin and Yang
This refers to the harmonious integration of the virtues of yin and yang in order to bring about the ideal relations among all beings or existent things in the universe.
All things in the universe form pairs because they always exist in relationships of relativity; each with its own counterpart. That is what we use the term ‘yin and yang.’ Some examples of this include, light and darkness, heaven and earth, divine beings and human beings, and other such complementary polarities. However, the Former World was a world of oppressed yin and revered yang wherein yin and yang had fallen into a biased and conflicted relationship with one another. Therefore, this tenet is undertaken to create concordance and harmony between yin and yang while also preventing them from bias or conflict against one another.
For instance, all social or human relations such as those between nation and individual, parent and child, and husband and wife are necessarily relationships characterized by mutual dependence. Yet, these relationships are often subject to conflict and disharmony. Therefore, the ‘Virtuous Concordance of Yin and Yang’, in terms of social or human relations, refers the resolution of these conflicts and the creation of a harmonious state wherein human beings collaborate and help one another.
Harmonious Union between Divine Beings and Human Beings
This means that divine beings and human beings can come to depend on each other in a harmonious and complementary way that transforms both into ideal beings. The human mind is an invisible gate through which divine beings come in and out. In this way, divine beings can harmonize with human beings to bring about various occurrences. Human beings come to achieve harmony with divine beings through their pure minds. If humans cultivate deeply enough, they achieve purity, eliminate selfishness, and live in harmony with others by resolving all kinds of grievances and grudges. Only at this advanced stage are they then able to interact with holy divine beings. Eventually, they become enlightened to understand all matters in the universe and are empowered to achieve all their aims at will.
Resolution of Grievances for Mutual Beneficence
This includes the whole process of resolving grievances or grudges by or against all things, people, and divinities, and also the process of preventing grievances or grudges from arising as well as promoting the betterment of others. Generally, people provoke grievances or grudges through their vanity and greed. These grievances or grudges created either in your present or past life brings misfortune and blocks your way to success. Our cultivation is carried out to resolve all such grievances or grudges by practicing specific forms of spiritual cultivation created by Holy Founder Jo Jeongsan while living within our means and promoting the betterment of others in order not to provoke any further grievances. Then, all grievances and grudges piled up from remote ages among human beings as well as between human beings and divine beings will be resolved and this will lead to the realization of ultimate peace and harmony for humankind.
Perfected Unification with Dao
This is the stage where human beings reach a perfectly enlightened state. This means that once mind and body are completely clean and pure, one can be unified with holy divine beings and eventually reach human perfection. In this state, one can have a thorough and full understanding of everything in the universe with the ability to do everything in accordance with one's will. By doing so, an everlasting paradise eventually arises in this world.

Creeds

Creeds are the necessary conditions that disciples have to follow to achieve the aims of Daesoon Jinrihoe. The category of Creeds consists of 'Four Cardinal Mottos' and 'Three Essential Attitudes.' They appear as follows:
Quieting the Mind
Restore your innate conscience which is unbiased, impartial and pure. Preserve this state to achieve the purpose of your cultivation.

Quieting the Body
Conduct yourself in accordance with righteousness and propriety. In other words, do not act with vanity or selfishness.

Reverence for Heaven
Bear in mind that Sangje is always with you. That is, serve Him with utmost respect and sincerity.

Spiritual Cultivation
While quieting your mind and body, fully concentrate your reverent mind on Sangje with your desire to worship Him sincerely. In other words, direct this reverent energy to your lower Dantian (the elixir field considered to be a qi-energy or life-force center located in the lower abdomen) by reciting incantations while continuously maintaining reverence and sincerity. This whole process is done with the ultimate goal of achieving integration with divine spirits.
Sincerity
Sincerity is a matter of reflecting consistently on yourself as you focus your efforts upon noble endeavors. Being sincere means maintaining a mind that is continuously concerned with detecting and correcting any insufficiencies in your exertions or dedication, as doing so will enable you to complete your task.

Respectfulness
Respectfulness is a matter of conducting yourself in a decent manner.

Faithfulness
Faithfulness is a matter of making up your mind about something and then confidently moving forward without any change or deviation from your originally determined intention. This involves committing yourself to the highest level of devotion in order to reach your anticipated end.

Aims

There are six aims in Daesoon Jinriohoe. However, these aims form pairs. The paired aims are interrelated with each other. The ones which appear first are based upon the ones that follow. In other words, it is through latter aims, that the formers are able to be achieved. These aims can serve as the best description of our identity and also as the best summary of the vision of Daesoon Jinrihoe.
Guarding against Self-deception – Transformation of Human Spirit
The first aim is to focus on our inner-selves as we guard ourselves against self-deception and totally transform our spirits. As we do not deceive ourselves, we can restore our conscience to the correct state of honesty and truthfulness. The conscience is the innate form of human nature that is free from greed and selfishness. Accordingly, ‘Transformation of Human Spirit’ based on ‘Guarding against Self-deception’ is the means by which we transform our spirit from the state of mutual conflict, which has long burdened humanity, into a new state of harmony and mutual beneficence.
Realizing Earthly Immortals – Renewal of Human Beings
The second aim is to renew ourselves wholly and in every aspect. An ‘Earthly Immortal’ is the ideal human being that we seek to become through the cultivation of Daesoon Truth. This new human being is a Dotong-gunja* who is unified with divinities while reciprocally responding to each other and reached the state of ‘Harmonious Union between Human Beings and Divine Beings (Sinin-johwa)’. ‘Renewal of Human Beings’ means that humans are perfectly and ideally renewed in their disposition and physical constitution through practicing the Dao of Mutual Beneficence and being reborn as the leaders of the Earthly Paradise of the Later World.

*Dotong-gunja : those who have the wisdom to fully understand everything in the universe beyond space and time while possessing the empowerment to do all things at their will.

Creation of Earthly Paradise – Re-creation of the World
The third aim is for the world. ‘Earthly Paradise’ is a world enlightened through Dao, wherein all people live as one family while there is no need to use force or punishment as humanity is governed harmoniously and in accordance with laws and principled.(principles) The world is thereby peaceful and full of happiness as there are no natural disasters with regards to the forces of water, fire, and wind. ‘Re-creation of the World’ is undertaken to greatly open a new world of harmony and mutual beneficence in all humanity. This world gradually unfolds due to the Reordering Works of Heaven and Earth performed by Sangje. These Reordering Works rectified the Former World that had been ruled by mutual conflict and had reached the very verge of annihilation.
