    What Is The Way Of the Samurai?

    Has anyone heard of an old saying like what are different ways of the samurai which only occurs during the late 1900's or probably 1800's?
    I do not Understand the part of the Samurai Ritual.

    Re: What Is The Way Of the Samurai?

    The way of the Samurai is pretty much a code of honor and loyalty to the lord you serve under. It's pretty much a code of ethics tailored for the Samurai. I could explain in further detail, but i'm at work and I don't have my copy of Hagakure: The way of the Samurai (hagakure = hidden in leaves) with me.

    I DO know a few quotes/sentences from Hagakure off hand though:

    It's considred rude and dishonorable to yawn in front of someone--especially your lord/master. If you rub the bridge of your nose, you can suppress the urge to yawn. (No lie; I read this in Hagakure)

    There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking.

    Singlemindedness is all-powerful.

    A man who will criticize you openly carries no connivance.

    Money is a thing that will be there when asked for. A good man is not so easily found.

    Walk with a real man one hundred yards and he'll tell you at least seven lies.

    It is a principle of the art of war that one should simply lay down his life and strike. If one's opponent also does the same, it is an even match. Defeating one's opponent is then a matter of faith and destiny.

    Even if it seems certain that you will lose, retaliate. Neither wisdom nor technique has a place in this. A real man does not think of victory or defeat. He plunges recklessly towards an irrational death. By doing this, you will awaken from your dreams.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    About Hagakure (it's a good book, you should check it out):

    Yamamoto Tsunetomo was a samurai in the early 1700s. Forbidden by law from committing tsuifuku (suicide of a retainer after his master's death), he retired to a monestary. Though he never fought in any battles, he nonetheless felt that the samurai of his time had become soft. A younger samurai that visited Yamamoto over the years wrote down his words in the Hagakure.

    The term you want to do a web search for is 'Bushidō'. The Wikipedia entry would be a good place to start...

    Well the last of the samurai died in the early 1600's. The samurai were not as later people imagined them to be. The samurai did not follow this rigid form of honor people say they did. A samurai general in 15th century said, "the enemy heavily outnumbered us and we were losing so we retreated."

    It sounds like you never heard the historical Japanese tale of the 47 Ronin... Retreat does not always mean dishonor...
