Ninjutsu - Summoning
Type of Spiritual Experience
The old Ninjutsu techniques incorporated the ability to summon and co-operate with animals [note that although the quote has been shortened this is what is meant]. According to legends, the Summoning Technique has been used to summon toads, snakes, turtles, hawks, dogs, bulls, rhinoceros, and owls. St Francis of Assissi appeared to have similar skills.
A description of the experience
Dr Masaaki Hatsumi - Essence of Ninjutsu
The old man decided to teach Jutaro the skills to predict how long a person will live and how to bring freedom to animals. It had taken a whole lifetime for the old man to acquire these skills.
