seminario@...Ninja Sorcery .. Magic
KUJI IN & KUJI KIRI
What I am presenting here is by no means a complete account of the Nine Finger Cuts that gave the Ninja mystical powers, but it will serve the would be Maho Tsukai (sorceror) as a very useful and provocative primer.
The exact origins of the nine cuts are unknown, but it is believed that they were first introduced to Japan by the Tantric Buddhist Schools of Shingon and Tendai Mikkyo.
It is a common misconception that the techniques of Kuji were the sole domain of the Ninja. This is not true, as even a cursory exploration of the Koryu (traditional feudal arts of the Samurai) will reveal. For instance, the Yagy Shinkage Ryu and the Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu both made use of the Kuji In and Kuji Kiri.
Though the techniques of Kuji In and Kuji Kiri are closely tied to one another, they in all actuality serve two very distinct functions. The Kuji In hand positions are used to invoke nine levels of mystic power. They are a method of focusing the mind and activating these powers, each in turn. The Kuji Kiri, however, is a form of practical sorcery, the method of which we will discuss shortly.
When utilizing the Kuji In, you may find the outward technique less important than your inward understanding of the concepts symbolized by each of the "cuts". In the beginning, rely more on what you feel internally, and less on written interpretation.
The Legendary Kuji-In
Kuji-in is the spiritual and mental strength the ninja possessed in the form of hand signs. These hand signs were believed to be able to channel energy. The hand signs were taken from the practices of the early Buddhists.
The Kuji-in was used to build confidence and strength in the ninja. It was also believed to enhance the senses of danger and foresee death for the ninja.
In Kuji-in the thumb represents the source of power (Ku), and the fingers represent the four elemental manifestations. They are Chi (earth - solids), Sui (water - liquids), Ka (fire - combustion) and Fu (wind - gases).
There are 81 hand symbols, total, but there are 9 primary ones: Rin, Kyo, Toh, Sha, Kai, Jin, Retsu, Zai, and Zen. Each symbol invokes different strengths and abilities in a trained ninja. Rin brings strength to the mind and body; Hei generates psychic power in order to mask one's presence; Toh enables the ninja to reach a balance between the solid and liquid states of the body, which leads to a greater harmony with the universe; Sha is used to heal oneself or another; Kai gives complete control over the body's functions, enabling one to slow the heart rate, endure extreme heat and cold, etc. Jin increases the mind's telepathic powers, giving a highly trained Ninja the ability to read the character of another; Retsu gives telekinetic powers, enabling a ninja to stun an opponent with a shout or touch. Zai extends the harmony gained by merging with the universe. Zen brings enlightenment and understanding. These symbols take an entire lifetime to truly master.
The nine finger "cuts" that give the Ninja their power.
Although believed to be a Ninja secret the Kuji~In was also used by the Samurai. Where it came from no one is sure but it does have similarities to Hindu and Tibetan Mundras. The Kuji~In is more a way of concentrating the mind than weaving magic with ones hands despite many Sensei and Movie companies attempts to prove otherwise.
Below you will find a series of pictures showing the hand and finger positions for the "popularised" version of the Ninja Kuji~In. There are several different versions of these finger symbols that are used by the Ninja and Samurai. I have chosen only to show the basic form as I believe the secret forms should only be passed on to ones highest ranked students.
It should be stressed that it is more important to get the mind correct than it is to have the exact finger positions.
Each cut represents one of the Nine levels of power. I leave it to the student to decide what is meant by "power" but it has been proven to me time and time again that as a student progresses so does his level of thinking. I will hint at this during the description of each cut.
The Nine Levels Are :-
RIN - STRENGTH of mind and body
KYO - DIRECTION OF ENERGY
TOH - HARMONY with the universe
SHA - HEALING of self and others
KAI - PREMONITION of danger
JIN - KNOWING THE THOUGHTS OF OTHERS
RETSU - MASTERY OF TIME AND SPACE
ZAI - CONTROL of the elements of nature
ZEN - ENLIGHTENMENT
When you practice the cuts you may wish to concentrate on one at a time or you may feel able to string all nine together. It is suggested that once you are comfortable with the finger positions that you take each cut one at a time and contemplate the meaning of that particular cut.
The meaning will be different for each student. For instance the meaning of RIN for one student may mean being very strong and capable of executive decisions while for another it may be as simple as being physically well and having a positive attitude.
As usual, I leave it to the reader to decide which is the better explanation.
It is a good idea to use the breathing exercise mentioned on the meditation page when you practice the Kuji~in as without the correct breathing you will not realise your full potential.
THE MUDRAS, MANTRAS

DIRECTION OF ENERGY

HARMONY with the universe
MUDRA: SOTOJISHI IN
MANTRA: ON JI RE TA RA SHI I TA RA JI BA RA TA NO-O SO WA KA
There is more to this than meets the eye. Submit to the All and share its momentum and its wisdom. The intelligence of an individual is always less than the combined intelligence of group. Study on this.

Kuji Kiri .. Ninja Magic
The Kuji~Kiri is very closely linked with the Kuji~In and in fact most people confuse the two. Both are said to have been introduced into Japan with Buddhism.
In the Kuji~In the fingers are used to invoke the nine levels of power used by the Ninja and Samurai. In the Kuji~Kiri a grid of nine lines are drawn to invoke these powers and all nine are used at the same time The Kuji~Kiri could almost be described as pratical magic and it is a way of casting spells.
One use of the Kuji~Kiri dates back to ancient times when Sailors would draw the Kanji of water on a piece of paper and then overlay this with the nine line grid. This was said to protect them, as even if the boat sank, the sailor himself would survive.
The animated picture on the left shows how the grid is drawn on the Kanji. First start with a horizontal line, then draw a vertical line then another horizontal etc etc. It is important to do this in the correct order for the spell to work. The picture on the right shows the name of each line as represented in the Kuji~In Another way to invoke this kind of spell was to draw the Kanji and the grid on the palm of the left hand using the index finger of the right hand.
KUJI KIRI: NINJA SORCERY
Pictured below are the names of the Kuji forming a grid of nine slashes. The grid is drawn starting with Rin, then Sha, then Toh, and son following the across then down pattern.
The method is incredibly simple and well suited to Chaos Magic. Simply write the symbol of desire (traditionally in Japanese Kanji, but any sigil will suffice) and using the Kuji, draw the grid over the symbol.
As an example, if you wished to heal an illness, draw a picture of the person, then the symbol over the part of the person that is diseased including the grid. After this talisman has been activated, you perform the "method of the tenth cut" (that is, you rub the talisman across the affected part of the person's body). Needless to say, a curse might be cast in a very similar fashion.
Another method of using the Kuji Kiri is to draw the talisman on the palm of the hand using your index finger.
I trust any competent magician will be able to devise other practical uses of the method. Look to Japanese folklore for ideas. Or maybe watch a few of the more occult oriented Anime.
When used to cure illness, as it still is in some practices in Japan, the outline of the body is drawn on a piece of paper. the Kanji for the affected body part is then drawn in the appropriate place (see diagram).
Next "The Method Of The Tenth Character" (Kuji hou) is used. This is where the spell is stroked over the patient.
The spell is then given to the patient who places it on a river bank and has to walk away without looking back .
