Bushi no Me – “Eyes of the Samurai”
(sight and insight)
A warrior does not see things in an ordinary way. A warrior has trained their mind and spirit to process the impulses from a highly refined manner. A warrior does not focus on one thing, but sees one thing.
To the warrior, the ideas of “eye sight” and “sight” are different, there are many different methods of sight and insight with a warrior.
NIKUGEN (Naked Eye)
TENGEN (Neutral Eye)
EGEN (Interpretive Eye)
SHINGEN / HOGEN (Compassionate Eye)
The training for all methods of warrior sight and insight for the samurai is called “Bushi no men Rensho” The complete understanding of these concepts will be found in Chapter Three of Budo Ryu Kai; School of War. This book details all of the fundamentals of the Budo Ryu Kai as well as the fundamentals and basics of all Budo.
This book is a must have for any practitioner of the Japanese martal arts and is to be released later this year!
I hope that you all enjoy the lesson!
Take care, Be Safe and Good Luck in your Journey of Budo!Anshu Christa Jacobson
