Book Review of "The Heart of Aikido" by Morihei Ueshiba

Posted 2010-05-17 11:57:14 by Jun Akiyama

Here's a nice book review on The Japan Times online website on "The Heart of Aikido: The Philosophy of Takemusu Aiki" by Morihei Ueshiba, arranged, translated, and edited by John Stevens.

From the article: To someone unfamiliar with the terminology and spiritual teachings of aikido, the lectures were luminous but baffling. These are obviously advanced teachings given to an already-loyal following, not an introduction to the practice or philosophy. [...] But the heart of the founder shines through clearly. [...] Certainly not for the uninitiated, this challenging and luminous work will be sure to inspire even greater devotion and love in students of aikido, and offers a fascinating glimpse into the thought process of a man who was a peacemaker, visionary and self-proclaimed incarnation of the divine.
