Soul of the Samurai: Modern Translations of Three Classic Works of Zen & Bushido by Thomas Cleary

In Soul of the Samurai respected author and translator Thomas Cleary reveals the true essence of Bushido or Zen warrior teachings according to 17th-century Japanese sword master Yagyu Munenori and his Zen teacher Takuan Soho.

This book contains the first English translations of their seminal writings on Bushido. Cleary not only provides clear and readable translations but comprehensive notes introducing the social, political, and organizational principles that defined Samurai culture—their loyalty to family, their sense of service and duty, and their political strategies for dealing with allies and enemies.

These writings introduce the reader to the authentic world of Zen culture and the secrets behind the Samurai's success—being "in the moment" and freeing the mind from all distractions, allowing you to react instantaneously and instinctively without thinking. In these classic works we learn that Zen mental control and meditational training were as important to the Samurai as swordsmanship and fighting skills.

The three works of Zen Bushido translated in Soul of the Samurai are:The Book of the Sword by Yagyu Munenori, The Inscrutable Subtlety of Immovable Wisdom by Takuan Soho, and The Peerless Sword by Takuan Soho.
