Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Use Samurai Zen techniques to achieve enlightenment. Simple exercises for uniting body, mind, and spirit.

Synopsis:

The success of the Samurai rests not only on martial arts skills, but also on the spiritual enlightenment of Zen Buddhism. This martial arts book shows how techniques such as the Iado and Kyudo lead to enlightenment and Satori - the burst of clarity that is the ultimate goal of Samurai Zen.

Synopsis:

The medieval Samurai of Japan have long been depicted as the consummate warriors of Asia. While the physical training the Samurai underwent was intense and exacting, much of their skill was based on their mental refinement as well as their physical prowess. At the forefront of integrating spiritual understanding into the martial arts, Scott Shaw draws upon his years of study of Buddhist culture to show you how to acquire higher awareness through the art of Zen and Iaido, or the meditative art of the sword. Scott Shaw begins by teaching you how to control and refine your physical senses, while quieting your mind and your emotions as well as your reactions to other people's energies. Next, with clear instruction and photographs, he guides you through both standing and seated forms of Iaido. He also includes powerful breathing exercises for centering yourself and directing energy. This book has special interest for students of Iaido, but it also contains a wealth of information and practical exercises for anyone who is sincerely interested in Zen Buddhism and the martial arts as a path to freedom or Satori.
