Samurai Wisdom PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Samurai Wisdom free pdf The ancient warrior culture of Japan produced a sophisticated martial philosophy that we know today as Bushido the Way of the Warrior. In "Samurai Wisdom," author Thomas Clearly provides five important new translations of major Japanese works on Bushido. The writings of the scholar Yamaga Soko and his disciples are among the clearest expositions we have of the core ideals and philosophy underlying the Samurai's disciplined way of life and outlook. Together they provide an in-depth, practical guide to character building and conduct according to the precepts of Bushido a code for professional warriors that retains as much relevance in today's world as it had when these works were written 400 years ago. Yamaga's writings inspired the transformation of the Samurai from a feudal class of warriors under the command of the Shogun to a group of powerful individuals with great intellectual, political and moral leadership and influence. The works translated in "Samurai Wisdom" for the very first time are as timeless and important today as the works of Sun Tzu, Musashi and Clausewitz. The five Japanese works on Bushido translated in "Samurai Wisdom" are: "The Way of the Knight" by Yamaga Soko "The Warrior's Rule" by Tsugaru Kodo-shi "Essentials of Military Matters" compiled by Yamaga Takatsune "The Education of Warriors" by Yamaga Soko "Primer of Martial Education" by Yamaga Soko"
