A priest of the Temple of the Clouds (whose great gong is shown above) saw in vision a path to save tens of millions of lives: He must kill Hideki Tojo, else Tojo attack America and start a terrible war.
Tojo had not yet been born.
The priest was Buddhist, a man devoted to compassion. He had vowed to serve all sentient beings. His visions were never wrong.
He vowed to kill Tojo.
On the same single night, the pregnant mother of Hideki saw in vision that a man would try to kill her infant son. She called upon a Buddhist priest to pray for her son. That man lived at the Temple of the Clouds. He was the brother of the first man.
That second priest saw in vision that if Tojo died, Japan would not attack America; that if Japan did not attack America, America would not defend the world from a greater evil; and that if America did not defend the world, hundreds of millions would die. His visions were never wrong.
He vowed to watch over the infant.
His brother came. He tried to save the child without harming his beloved brother, but he could not. He killed his brother, but Tojo lived.
