Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 25

Comparison on Ueshiba in Mongolia and pic from "Spiritual Quietness" - same mudra (hand shape).

From a quick glance of the sources, it seems this old "new age" religion borrowed from a large amount of sources as Mr. Goldsbury aptly lists.

The big thing is - what effect did this have on his Daito ryu and then his Aikido. What would have Takeda Sokaku thought about this philosophical underpinning.

Perhaps, "Yeah, I can connect to the Universe and THROW YOU DOWN." To the face!
