Life lessons from the Book of Six Rings
The book of six rings is not just for martial arts practitioners. I have mentioned this in passing, yet i know that many of you will want to know what exactly are these life-lessons.
The first thing that you need to do is not look at the book as a martial arts book or a guide to learn budo. The book is written in such a way that lessons are contained in almost every page. The book is small in order that you can return to it for inspiration or for study if that is what you would like.
You will find stories and anecdotes that allude to such lessons as compassion. You will find what it means to be a forgiving person. What does it mean to be a warrior in the spiritual sense. Each lesson is hidden within the text of the book and sometimes it may take more than one reading to get it.
FIVE DAYS OF SPIRITUAL TRAINING
There is a program of spiritual training and preparation for your continued spiritual development. Even though you may not be a seasoned martial artist but you can take part in the meditative exercises, that is why it was written with two separate facets in mind.
