I just found out that the 2010's theme is Rokkon Shoujou. Also that the weapon of study will be the tachi. All of these was taken from George Ohashi's website. I'm very happy and excited... looking forward to study and learn a lot.

P.D. to the mod's
Didn't know where to post this so I put it in the soapbox. If required please move it where belongs.

禄根清笑淨

"The purification of the senses with laughter" is one interpretation. I'm sure Sensei will expand on the various meanings and permutations of it as the year begins. Best not to get locked into a fixed interpretation too early.

Wouldn't mind trainning/jamming with those girls but I think it's not what this year's theme is about. *sigh*

In Shinto, Rokkon Shojo refers to the "six roots of being"; specifically the five sense and the mind. These six points are ways that kegare (impurites/polution/corruption) can enter one's soul.

In the Shinto ritual of misogi (purification in water, usually a river, lake or waterfall) it is common to hear the chanted phrase "Harae Tamai, Kiyome Tamai, Rokkon Sho Jo" It is a prayer to purify the soul and cleanse the six roots of being.

About the kanji in Rokkon...

I know that Hatsumi-sensei likes to play with the on/kun yomi of the kanji and thus the meaning of the "Bujinkan Rokkon" is quite different from the "Buddhist Rokkon".

Now my question is: I've found two kanji for the "kon" part, one was taken from Shihan Duncan Stewart's blog (really good one for us training in the far and lost corners of this earth) and is like this: 根 which means: a root, the origin, the cause, nature, a radical. A meaning more related to the Buddhist Rokkon.

On Shihan Ohashi's web page I found this one: 魂 which means: a soul, a spirit, a ghost. Probably more related to the Bujinkan Rokkon. Now, which of these two is being used canonically? Or are both used the same? I haven't seen the scroll (well the pics to be gramatically correct) at the Honbu so for the buyû training/living in Japan or for the more experienced ones I really need some help with this matter. I know there are more important things to devote my attention to (training and improving my taijutsu).

Thank you for taking the time to read this lenghty question and I would appreciate some feedback!
