Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 13

Hello Fred,

Many thanks for the information. I used the new translation of Kisshomaru Ueshiba's biography and not the Japanese text itself. A reprint of the translation is coming out, so I told the translator, whom I know, to make some essential corrections.

The information on Kinugasa was interesting. Kisshomaru does not really say very much about his father's exposure to Shingon Buddhism. He has much more to say about his exposure to Omoto. The conversations between Ueshiba and Deguchi must have been bizarre.

Best wishes,

PAG
