If I had to guess, I would say the source of the gokui with shikin haramitsu daikomyo appended would likely be Hontai Saiga Ryu Ninpo. If I were to keep guessing, that would be a made up style. Oh wait, I just watched some video. No guessing needed. Still don't know if that's the source, but definitely made up ninpo.

I just noticed a list of several uta in Soke's book Essence of Budo at the end of chapter 1. Included in the list are the Chihaya buru..., translated as "The teachings of god; correct heart; eternally protect me." and also #4 from that list - Tsukikage no terasanu ..., translated "There is no country on which the moonkight does not shine, but it lives in the heart of the people that look at it."
None of them have Shikin Haramitsu Daikomyo appended. Some are attributed (Toda Shinryuken, Takuan).

Has anyone ever found anything about these Gokui no uta? Besides the original reference here on Kutaki that linked to a Spanish page that no longer exists, everything else seems to be an echo chamber. I wonder if it is a practice for a Buddhist sect in Japan or elsewhere. Anyone know?

Its quite possible, though only speculation (hell, this is the internet - what else are we supposed to do?) that Sensei didn't like the visitors and might have wanted them to get sick and go away. I think the story illustrates the difference between shin-ken and the koryu practiced by some. Who knows? Well, obviously... but I'm not inclined to ask about it.

A higher profile might be a contradiction.

Someone more qualified than I shall correct me if I am wrong, I am sure. The simplistic answer to your questions. Iga and Koga was (is) a region in Japan. They were two mountains divided by a valley . The people living in the area would have had some sort of contact or cross contact with each other . The extent and depth of that contact would be at best, a guesstimate, by even the most informed expert imho !


You would think so, but you might be surprised. I was in England for the 1991 Tai Kai. During the next week, I went to attend some training in Guildford. I stopped at a nearby town, probably within 5 miles, and asked for directions. No one I talked to had any idea how to get there. Might be an island-nation kind of thing.

In any case, it's moot. I won't be posting here anymore.



Hurray!
