It took me along time to read it, but it gives a different perspective on the Martial Arts and Life. Not for the beginner!

HASH(0x8bd91348) out of 5 stars Required read for spiritual enrichment 3 Jan. 2015
By Public name (required) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well written, profound, meaningful, gripping. It resonates. This is one of those books that you hold on to for life, and I don't have many of those.

What is most interesting is that as of the writing of this review, not one reviewer mentioned the true message of this work. Some of the reviews only say that it is good. Others go to great length to explain why it's good, but none of those actually get it. So either no one else understood the text, or I didn't understand the text. Either way, I'm going to give it another read.

I suggest you do the same.

HASH(0x8c950a14) out of 5 stars The Force is Strong with this One 8 Mar. 2014
By Brandon Scriver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those books that will leave you swimming in the information it contains long after you read it.

Not a how to manual, but a mindset for training manual. Unlike other Japanese works from the Fuedal Era the focus is not on being ready to die, but on how to approach training from day to day.

The supplementary texts included with the book are very helpful in laying a groundwork to understand the actual sermon.

I found this book to be extraordinary.
Some of the beginning stories and parables were a bit less interesting to me, but the actual Demon's Sermon was something I have read 3 or 4 times now, and certainly something I can come back to and enjoy many times more.
HASH(0x8c18c99c) out of 5 stars A Classic 14 July 2014
By Ace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was veryinstrumental in process. I feel thatit is a work thatshould be shared with artists, martial artists, musicians, occultists, and other. This isa book of timeless wisdom, surpassing techniques or whathave you. I recommend foranyone who seeks totake the martial path as a spiritual one.
HASH(0x8bd91930) out of 5 stars A Great Read 10 Mar. 2014
By Nicole N. Garvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I haven't finished Demon's Sermon yet, the book gives a thorough understanding of the correlation between, Shugendo, tengu and the martial arts. A comprehensable understanding I had been searching for, for a while.
