Bushido（The spirit of Japanese）
1、Why do I emphasize the importance of the “Seven moral code of Samurai” to all individuals, including salaried workers?
Although it may sound repetitive, I will explain it once again.
Even my fellow martial artists recoil when the term “Bushido” is mentioned.
Even those immersed in the world of martial arts seem disconnected from Bushido, lacking an understanding of its essence.
Both martial arts and sports fail to distinguish between the two.
This is evidence of the influence of a culture tainted by Western biases, a culture centered around winning and losing, and personal gain.
So, what values does Bushido hold?
The seven virtues, the beautiful principles underlying the way of Bushido deeply rooted in the Japanese people,
are the values that, if we reassess and internalize, will undoubtedly lead us to a successful life.
That is what I want to convey.
Yes! I want Bushido to be reconsidered as a philosophy of success and as a law of attracting happiness.
Why? Because those who have achieved success as salaried workers, occupying positions such as department heads,
executives, and company presidents, have gained a certain level of respect and have, to some extent, embodied the seven moral code of Bushido.
The Meiji Restoration was accomplished through the embodiment of Bushido, nothing else.
Since then, the samurai class was abolished, but it became ingrained as the moral code of the entire nation.
After the defeat in World War II, it has certainly been gradually lost. However, it still remains as the essence of the Japanese spirit and serves as the spiritual backbone of the Japanese people.
The seven principles of Bushido, these form the core of Bushido.
2,Seven moral code of Samurai:
Jin (Love and Sympathy)
Gi (Truth and Justice)
These seven virtues have been cherished as guiding principles for the actions of the Japanese people.
However, since the Meiji Restoration, they have been corrupted by a culture that seeks efficiency and effectiveness.
Furthermore, intentionally undermined as part of the American policy to weaken Japan after World War II.
