spiritual warrior

A Quote by Tsunetomo Yamamoto on bushido, zen, life, on-going practice, and spiritual warrior

It is not good to settle into a set of opinions. It is a mistake to put forth effort and obtain some understanding and then stop at that. At first putting forth great effort to be sure that you have grasped the basics, then practicing so that they may come to fruition is something that will never stop for your whole lifetime. Do not rely on following the degree of understanding that you have discovered, but simply think, "This is not enough."

A Quote by Deishu on zen and spiritual warrior

If a fine sword is not constantly polished, it will never show its luster. If you don't practice, you will never be able to master universals and particulars. Plenty of people can talk about Zen, but not many can live it. Get to work!
