About: A definitive treatise on the code of the samurai-revised and with a new introduction upholding the Samurai code both on and off the battlefield is one of the essential tenets of bushidand#333;, the way of the warrior-and budand#333; shoshinshu is a definitive treatise on living in accordance with the Samurai code. When it comes to books on Samurai philosophy, the edo-period classic hagakure is iconic to contemporary readers, but budand#333; shoshinshu, which was written during same period, was equally influential at the time. Many scholars consider hagakure, which was influenced by Zen, to be the most radical and romantic of Samurai texts, while budand#333; shoshinshu is more measured and practical, owing to its heavy Confucian influence. Taken in tandem, they provide a range of insights on the role of the individual within the Samurai order-both addressing the Warrior's role in times of peace and emphasising the importance of living selflessly. Written by daidoji yand#363; zan, a Confucian scholar who descended from a long line of prominent warriors, budand#333; shoshinshu comprises 56 pithy instructive essays for young Samurai on how to live morally, with professional integrity and a higher purpose and to carry on the true chivalrous tradition of bushidand#333;. budand#333; shoshinshu is imbued with classic Confucian philosophy, centred on living one's life with sincerity and loyalty.
