“Way of the Enlightened Warrior” or the “Enlightened Warrior Path”
Bu– Warrior – (Our definition) One who has the courage to transcend fear, to be resolved in times of challenge, demonstrate peace while being able to protect peace.
Shin– Depending how the kanji is written this can be read as Heart, Mind, Truth, or Highest Aspect of God. In our training we combine all four attributes, using the word “Enlightenment” to describe them. When writing Bushindo we use the kanji character for ‘heart’ because the heart is the center of all the teachings. We begin here and end here in the jeweled heart.
Do– Way or Path of the Bushin (Warrior with heart). Do also means willful clarity of mindful purpose and directing of the divine will.
