Re: Lack of spirituality

Hi everybody

indeed O-Sensei said that Aikido perfects and completes all religions. Therefore: If a given sensei of a dojo instructs in his understanding of aikidos spiritual side, some students could be led to think that sensei´s approach was the only way. By not talking to much of spirituality, students can find their own way to truth. Of course, the fact the aikido has a deep spiritual side to it should not be denied by the sensei, but as Georg put it: it is a personal thing. Let students discover it by themselves......
