O’Sensei no Kuden: Kototama

Our words,  [as utterance,]  are an  expression of our animal spirits – but kototama is the way they reverberate – with the kind of reverberation that goes clear across the whole sky and becomes the Pillars of Heaven.

– – – O’Sensei,  probably audio-recorded by by Masatake Fujita, transcribed by Sadateru Arikawa Shihan,  published in Aiki-Shinzui,   p.51
