5.0 out of 5 stars In opening your mind the way is found in death., 10 July 2000
This review is from: Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai (Paperback)
Hagakure the way of the Samurai is a collection of thoughts and reflections by its author. It proves an invaluable philosophical guide and should not be read literally. Readers should first go to the book with an open mind and open heart just as a samurai would approach death for his master. In being a collection of advice and insight this book showsthe enlightened way of ancient Japan. Its relevance to modern day life becomes apparent when one sees similarities between his own life and the situations described by the book. It is divided into 11 chapters which constituted the core text of the original Hagakure. It is further sub divided into smaller 'bitesize' read at the office or before bed enlightening tales that form the rules of the samurai. For anyone who has seen the Movie Ghost Dog: The Way of The Samurai this book is a must have and would make the perfect gift for anyone who considers what may come int the end. My only further word is simple - The way is found in Death. "it is better not to eat rather than eat.." chptr 1 Hagakure
