SEVEN PRINCIPLES

From "The Zen Way to the Martial Arts"

Bushido, the way of the samurai, grew out of the fusion of Buddhism and Shintoism. This way can be summarized in seven essential principles:

1. Gi: the right decision, taken with equanimity, the right attitude, the truth. When we must die, we must die. Rectitude.

2. Yu: bravery tinged with heroism.

3. Jin: universal love, benevolence toward mankind; compassion.

4. Rei: right action--a most essential quality, courtesy.

5. Makoto: utter sincerity; truthfulness.

6. Melyo: honor and glory.

7. Chugo: devotion, loyalty.

These are the seven principles underlying the spirit of Bushido, Bu--martial arts; shi--warrior; do the way.

The way of the samurai is imperative and absolute. Practice, in the body, through the unconscious, is fundamental to it, thus the enormous importance attached to the learning of right action or behavior.

Bushido has influenced Buddhism, and Buddhism has influenced Bushido; the elements of Buddhism found in Bushido are five:

  • Pacification of the emotions;
  • Tranquil compliance with the inevitable;
  • Self-control in the face of any event;
  • A more intimate exploration of death than of life;
  • Pure poverty.
