Re: Is Morihei Ueshiba really O Sensei

When I typed おおせんせい, withe おお (Japanese kun reading) I was immediately given 大先生, with no kanji variations. The reading for 翁 is オウ (Chinnese ON reading), but the only combinations I have seen are proper names. In the literature Morihei Ueshiba is usually referred to as 開祖 kaiso, which is usually translated as Founder, and, of course, there is usually only one.
