The stone tablet.

The stone tablet (石碑, sekihi) is a monument which was created by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki in order to discourage his son's descendants from attempting to recreate the Rinnegan.[1] The tablet can only be deciphered fully by the Rinnegan, while the Sharingan and Mangekyō Sharingan are able to partially decipher it.


Some time after Hagoromo's death, certain details on the tablet were forged by Black Zetsu as part of its plan to revive Kaguya Ōtsutsuki.[2] The tablet eventually fell into the possession of the Uchiha clan, the descendants of Indra Ōtsutsuki, where it was secretly passed down for generations.[3] After the formation of Konohagakure, the tablet was kept in the underground bunker of the Naka Shrine for decades, before being relocated to a forest.[4]


More specifically, the following sentences were quoted:

  • "Seeking stability, one god was divided into yin and yang, these opposing two acting together obtain all things in creation" (“一つの神が安定を求め陰と陽に分極した 相反する二つは作用し合い森羅万象を得る”, "Hitotsu no kami ga antei o motome in to yō ni bunkyokushita, aihansuru futatsu wa sayōshiai shinra banshō o eru")[3]
  • "When someone who possesses the power of Saṃsāra approaches the moon, an eye will open that is reflected on the moon to grant the eternal dream." (「輪廻の力を持つ者が月に近づきし時、無限の夢を叶えるための月に映せし眼が開く」, "Rinne no chikara o motsu mono ga tsuki ni chikazukishi toki, mugen no yume o kanaeru tame no tsuki ni utsuseshi me ga hiraku.")[14]
