What are the Shinto holy books called?

I've been studying this for a little while now, and as far as I know, and I'm probably wrong, but I don't think there is one.

There is not a core text, but there are four essential history books to the Shinto religion.

The two most sacred Shinto books are the 'KOJIKI' and the 'NIHONKI'.


The Lotus Sutra
the sacred texts are the kojiki and the nihongi
There isn't one, Shintoism is the worship of nature and nature forces ; Ancestral Worship; Kami = Nature Gods
Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) and Nihon shoki (Chronicles of Japan), books written in the 8th century CE tell the stories of the origin of the world and important events. These books are considered the "texts" of Shinto

The Shinto holy book is the O'dno Jing (Book of Salvation)

What are some of the values of Taoism?

The three core values of Daoism are; 1) Simplicity 2) Compassion 3) Humility These things are said to be only achieveable by constantly practicing the state of "Wuji" or "no mind" or "emptyness" during meditation. The more a person practices "Wuji" or "no mind" the more and more these virtues manifest themselves of their own accord. [[User:67.148.120.72|67.148.120.72]]stardingo747

What rules are there to convert to Shinto?

Shinto isn't a religion that requires you to convert to a system of rules; it requires a mindset, one of peaceful communion with the kami that inhabit the world around us. I would say you have to do nothing more than either find or create a shrine or sacred, beautiful place at which to make prayers, give offerings, and perform ritual cleansing. If you can't find a shrine, which is difficult outside Japan, simply visiting a place which seems as though it could have a resident spirit, and do it there.

How is it possible that Shintoism and Buddhism coexist as Japan's two major religions?

Since Shintoism is primarily a religion with strong theological components, but minimal physical rituals while Buddhism is primarily a religion with numerous physical rituals, but a weak theology, the two religions are more easily hybridized. A person could believe in the Shinto gods and meditate as a Buddhist.
