Bushido Love


A student asks, “Can Zen and Bushido, the code of the Samurai, be adopted to daily living, and especially to relationships?

The philosophies of Zen, and the code of Bushido, have both evolved in order to be significant to modern individuals. The first path toward enlightenment in Zen is Proper views. The first principle in Bushido is Honor. Since both are moral compasses, they just needed to use more contemporary language.

Proper views. For a successful relationship love it for what it is, not for what you want. Take into account that great love and great achievements require great risks.

Bushido. In serving serve, in fighting kill, in loving give all and keep your heart as open as the sky.
