    Question Where can I find Kuji-in related books? eg Wolfgang Ettig etc.?

    Wolfgang Ettig has a book about Kuji-In, but After searching the net I still have not found a place where I can find it?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Be so kind and sign with your full name. This is a e-budo rule.

    Btw, the book is written in German.

    You are correct I forgot, the book is trilingual (German, French and English). It is currently out of print, last edition came out in 1991. The book has 112 pages. The ISBN is: 392486201X
    To be honest I have read his other books, and was not very impressed, you find probably more and better info on various websites...

    Default Kuji-in books

    Hi Jason,

    Please don't see this as spam, but as an honest answer to the threadstarter's question. I'll even throw in some free gravy to be cool with everyone

    This is a video of some guy (doh!) doing a kuji-in ritual set, using the japanese mantras (original mantras are sanskrit, used for advanced studies).
    http://www.livemaster.org/archive/KujiIn_side_low.wmv

    A first here, i'm giving you a few pages of the introductory book:
    http://www.livemaster.org/archive/Kuji-in_EN_78_85.pdf
    http://www.livemaster.org/archive/Kuji-in_EN_93_95.pdf

    The second book (Advanced Kuji-in) relates to the self-transformation aspect, where spirituality joins with the technical application.

    I'm curently writing the third book of the trilogy, where the original sanskrit mantras are explained, the japanese shinto and buddhist approach, the reasons for each of the finger positions...

    The first two books will be available on amazon (next month when they update their titles database) and booksurge:
    http://www.booksurge.com/author.php3?account=POAG00003

    Sorry about the links galore. Here is what i know about other authors:

    Wolfgang's book is out of print. I couldn't find it myslef; as an author and kuji-in enthusiast, i like to read all that exists on the subjetc.

    There is allways the gloomy unexplained shinto work, wonderfully translated by Sati, an essential to those who wish to read the original manuskript, but then, you are left alone without explanations. http://www.ninjutsu.com

    There is also a transcript somewhere of the chinese manuscripts by Ge Hong (Bao Pu Zhi, 300 AD), which demonstates that the chinese (thus the hindu) were using the nine hand seals a thousand year before the japanese, for much more purposes than martial arts. I just love telling to ninjutsu lovers that kuji-in is not exclusive to martial arts, sorry about that . Hope you'll enjoy the reading nevertheless.

    Okay, so you want to learn Kuji? I bet you speak very good Japanese to learn the intricate subleness of the language to get all the meanings. If not, then you are just being someone who is chasing shadows.

    The origins of Kuji-In are Hindu, then Chinese buddhism. If you speak Japanese, but don't have faith, THEN you're in trouble. We use the term Kuji-In because it is the most popular way of describing the technique, instead of the english "Nine Hand Seals" or sanskrit "Navamudrani". In the same way, there are a lot of great holistic healers that use the art of Rei-Ki, and don't have a clue of japanese language. Terminologies are used so that we can understand each other.

    The key component to kuji-in is your attitude of self-development. If the technique is a quick guide to personal power, then you have some work to do. If it is a tool of personal growth, then you got it. Call it how you want, but do it right.

    Gotta give it to you. You either have a lot of guts or just have no respect for yourself. You are already in Baffling budo but yet you still try to sell us your used Pinto. Unbelievable!
