Because we at our Katori Shint˘-ryű Keik˘j˘ bow to Futsunushi no Mikoto, Marishiten and the Ryuso Iizasa Ch˘izai Ienao i am quite interested in the Kami of other Bud˘.

If i've read this topic right: http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24398&page=1 there are atleast 2 to 3 other people who also bow in and out with ni rei, ni hakushu ippai.

I am aware that many Aikid˘ka don't follow Shint˘-rites anymore, so this question is just for the people who do:

Which Kami is enshrined in your Kamidana? Is it one of 43 Guardian Deitys of Aikid˘? Which one? Or do you enshrine all? Or do you enshrine Morihei Ueshiba and the Line of Doshus in your Kamidana in a ancestorcultish way? or are you ignorant of what is enshrined in the Kamidana and you just do it?
