Compared to what the Founder had to say in "Takemusu Aiki" and "Aiki Shinzui", Tohei Sensei's comments seem relatively simple. Are we to take the "Kojiki" and "Reikai Monogatari" (the source of the Founder's discourses) literally?
"Takemusu Aiki" and "Aiki Shinzui"--These aren't available in translation, are they. Are there any commentaries available on them? (The very idea beggaring my point, I suppose...)
Actually, I've seen these titles bandied about recently but was under the impression that Osensei had only published things under his name that others had written. Could I trouble you for some remedial bibliography here, Peter?
As always, thanks.
