Kuji-In famous ninja Black magic


#1

I kind of met someone in the martial arts and explained some Kuji-In. Are you guys familiar with this death magic? Is it somehow related to reiki?


#2

What is it like?


#3

Any details you could fill in? it´s an interesting consept


#4

Mantras and mudras


#5

Its not dark and certainly not death magic, at least outside of the Nicholas Linnear novels…and hollywood ninja movies Their hand signs meant to focus energy for their respective purpose. A kind of hybrid of basic daoist and esoteric buddhist magic.


#6

But they could be used as applications in rituals, but I suppose it requires appropiate timing and creativity


#7

Of course they can. The kuji-kiri is also often used as a banishment method. There’s also a method of drawing the kuji kiri lines over a kanji for practical magic


#8

Banshenshukai also offers spells utilizing similar hand signs if I remember correctly


#9

Nice, didn´t know that. Now that is a banishing method I haven´t tried before, perhaps one day.

Hmmm interesting. Have to read more about it definitely. Thanks for the insights :smile:
