Kort biografi
Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵), also known as Shinmen Takezō, Miyamoto Bennosuke, or by his Buddhist name Niten Dōraku, was a Japanese swordsman and samurai famed for his duels and distinctive style. Musashi, as he was often simply known, became renowned through stories of his excellent swordsmanship in numerous duels, even from a very young age. He was the founder of the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū or Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship and the author of The Book of Five Rings (五輪書, Go Rin No Sho), a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still studied today.

Abstraction before technicality. Very cool.

Thoroughly enjoyable historical texts that represent the Taoist perspectives of the samurai warriors of the 17th century.

Një nga tekstet më të sakta të kulturës aziatike, për artin e sofistikuar të betejës dhe triumfit.

A short, functional book, Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings offers some rather basic philosophical tenets – know yourself, be calm, live in harmony with things, etc. – alongside extensive and specific instructions on various weapons and fighting stances and so on. The latter is, of course, less useful to a modern reader, and the former is elevated in many readers' eyes by its context. I believe ancient instruction manuals like this are elevated by some to the level of philosophy, when in truth they are nowhere near, simply because people like the aesthetic of learning from a samurai and following a 'warrior's path' or somesuch.

My Shambhala edition, translated by Thomas Cleary, also included a second short manual, The Book of Family Traditions on the Art of War by Yagyū Munenori, which is more of the same. It was a little bit more lively in its writing style, but in truth both books are a bit turgid. Ultimately, these books are shallow pools whereas real works of philosophy can be like great brawling oceans when you read them. The Book of Five Rings does have one profound line about expanding your knowledge beyond your own discipline, because "if you have wide knowledge of the ways, you encounter them in everything" (pg. 18). I only wish the books themselves had done more to show us.
