Re: When you bow do you worship or just...
Rather than trying to respond to four pages of an old thread, I'll just reply to the original topic.
Personally, I bow to O Sensei to show him respect and give him thanks, in the same way that I bow to my sensei. It is not an act of worship. As a religious person, I reserve my worship and veneration for the divine. O Sensei, great man that he was, was only human.
