hey folks, its been a while.

going out on a limb here but i wanted to ask if anyone knew where i might be able to find a translation of the norito used during a very typical shinto ritual - namely the ground breaking ceremony performed on behalf of companies and individuals prior to the start of construction.

For those interested - you can find many recordings of the ritual on youtube, following a set ritual pattern.

What you can't find is what's actually being said - unless someone's ear is attuned to use of ancient norito. Just Kidding
