While studying Ninzuwu; the ability to be aware of similarities in the art in other cultures and styles is uncanny. But when you stumble on finding within ninzuwu it astonishing. We know ninzuwu different styles and books go together as all being part of a universal shamanic perspective. But recently found a connection in Ame-no-ukihashi: The Ancient Martial art of the Ninzuwu, The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan, and the BuddhaNomicon. Interestingly its has to do with reflection and protection.
Many know I have work very rigorously with the Ame-no-ukihashi: The Ancient Martial art of the Ninzuwu acquiring my black Belt in the art. The first five stances representing the Vowels; are generally your base footing and foundation equaling to raising the spirit in reflection of itself. Which can be seen in the 5 stance which is O and kami is Ame-kagami-no-mikoto meaning heavenly mirror. This stance consist of a strong grounded wide leg like Ox stance and with your hand adjacent from each other top to bottom representing heaven and earth.
Passage under the stance says:
There are three in many ancient legends around the world. If one is allowed to read the scared tomes of what happen before, what is, and what will come, they will see that Three is a funneled-reflection between worlds. On one side of the three is the intercourse of heaven and earth. On the other side of the Three are male and female divine powers. One is the reflection of the other, and in that is a form of protection.
It is written: Kuni-toko-no-mikoto- produced Ame-kagami-no-mikoto
The Most important section is: One is the reflection of the other, and in that is a form of protection.
Interestingly the passage reflects the stance equaling to the placing of the hands and stable base of the legs reflecting each each other. Take notice to the hand preferably how the seem to be coming together.
Next we will look at: 7 hexagram of The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan, Earth over Water which Vasuh letters consist of Zhee-Shki-Hmu-Nzu. Each Vasuh letter consist of a passage relating to the hexagram called the letter to the magician .
Zhee: Without discipline the light of the goddess cannot be cultivated. Remember that nothing in life is free, but and respect is the greatest form of payment that can be given,
Shki: Death energy is transformational energy and a degree of integrity is needed or everything will change.
Hmu: Once change occurs, desires begins. Desire is also possession, but can be used as a vehicle of travel.
Nzu: Learning to protect self and gaining money require the same hand shake.
The most important Vasuh passage is Nzu which reflects the O stance in Ame-no-ukihashi “Learning to protect self and gaining money require the same hand shake.”
Interestingly all the Vasuh letters in the 7th hexagram relate to the Ame-no-ukihashi martial art stance. Zhee consist of the head being focus and lifting the spirit (awareness). Shki representing the base (integrity) consist of a strong stature or stance (upright). Hmu can be seen in the hands as its it circles the heart and is the only part that will move and acquire something “ Once change occurs, desires begins. Desire is also possession” Nzu can be seen in the whole movement and base also Nzu is said “can be used as a protective shield”
Throughout the letter of Genghis Khan to Magician of the Yi Jing it consist of three principals
Discipline: “She must have discipline to give birth to life”
Base/foundation/Stature: Do not be deceived by the foolish talk of men, for they would like to see many things come to past in their lifetime. Take heed, not in the words of men but in the stature of Commanders of armies.
Protection and Gaining: Life is a battle and its warriors must be armed with the good fortune of persistence in their skill. As these things are heavenly gifts kept in the space of the moon. The Moon is water in the Earth that makes plants grow,
Now also the 7th hexagram is governed by Priest Ahaji this is what is written about him “ He know well the art of discipline and teaches the newly initiated in the manner and customs of the temple (earth). He indicates all dangers in thy undertaking and can aid in the study of difficult art and sciences.”
Now lets look at the the BuddhaNomicon and the Eight Gardens of Perfection namely Zanuwuhn. This is what is said about Zanuwuhn:
“Zanuwuhn is the protectress of the soul and Vanquisher of evil magic and mechanisms that are set against thee. Yet the Initiate should be aware that theses are not the tools of war, as no negative engery can exist in the garden of purity. Zanuwhun can see karma for what it is and know how to evade its fate, along with the laws of accident. It is a useful gift from the bride of Nyarzir that will allow the Initiate to cast the energies of exorcism and extinguish those who are possessed by wrathful energies.”
Her mantra is:
Aum-Aum-Phe-Hmu(protect) Yhi(of) Izehu(property)
Zanuwuhn protector of earthly things.
Interestingly her hand sign is the griping of the hand like and self hand shake; similar to the hand position of the “O” stance in Ame-no-ukihashi.
Now if you look you see the same three principals in her identity:
Protection and Gaining: “protectress of the soul Vanquisher of evil magic and mechanisms that are set against thee” “It is a useful gift from the bride of Nyarzir that will allow the Initiate to cast the energies of exorcism and extinguish those who are possessed by wrathful energies.”
Dealing with wrathful energy creates protection and gains peace and the ability to grow.
Discipline:Zanuwhun can see karma for what it is and know how to evade its fate, along with the laws of accident.
Disciple will allow you to see and evade.
Base/foundation/Stature: Yet the Initiate should be aware that theses are not the tools of war, as no negative energy can exist in the garden of purity.
Base is stature is constant like the purity in the garden of perfection: in the Marie Laveau Corpus text speaks on Nyarzir meaningof garden of perfection “perpetual transformation”.It writes under the Master symbol of reiki “Raku” also known as “Johuta” While the Bride of Nyarzir is married to the Nyarzir, it is the power of lighting in itself. It is a perpetual transformation and in that is its existence. “ no negative energy can exist in the garden of purity” represent stable growth, still motion, Johuta. .
The mantra of Zanuwuhn is also maintains the three principals
Aum-Aum-Phe-Hmu(protect) Nzu Protection (protective shield)
Yhi(of) Phe Discipline (Art of levitation )
Izehu(property) bnhu Gaining/possession (controls all things concerning the increase of one’s wealth)
Interestingly circles strongly are The Bnhu, The Phe and The Nzu
Bnhu is the five letter and the “O” stance is the five Stance
Phe is the Six Letter and Zanuwuhn is the 6th Garden
Nzu is the 7th Letter and you have the Seventh Hexagram Ahaji land over water.
All correspond and reflect fundamental principals and like it said in the Ame-no-ukihashi “O” stance passage.
“There are three in many ancient legends around the world”
This clearly shows how all the text in Ninzuwu correspond with each as one unit reflecting each other, and like the passages. “One is the reflection of the other, and in that is a form of protection.”
