True Bushido code

You cannot understand the true Bushido code without knowing the Samurai warrior. It is the Samurai that developed, chose, and dedicated their entire lives to the unwritten code of conduct, known as Bushido. To do less, would be a dishonor to their memory and their legacy of martial ways.

The samurai warriors believed that they had to obey their master. This allegiance between the samurai warriors and their masters came before anything else including friendship and family ties. This concept of honor or bushido code is sometimes difficult to understand in the western and modern civilizations since in the western teachings and in modern societies, family comes first.

This unwritten Samurai code of conduct, is known as Bushido. The true Bushido code holds that the true warrior must possess loyalty, courage, veracity, compassion, and honor as important, above all else.

An appreciation and respect of life was also imperative, as it added balance to the warrior character of the true Bushido warrior. He was often very stoic with a deep and strong philosophical passion. He could be deadly in combat and yet so gentle and compassionate with children and the weak.

Great Post! I beleive that more people should apply some of the Bushido to their daily lives. In a time when corporation are viewed as more corrupt than politicians, we could use the Bushido Code.
