    Samurai Day



    Translation

    Ohayou Niten,
    Ohayou to everyone,

    Today is the Samurai Day....Samurai!
    This word has a tremendous importance in my personal experience, in my life.
    Thanks to the teachings from these warriors that I have achieved so many things in my life, and get until here.
    Honor, Loyalty, Justice, Wisdom, Compassion and essentially the Courage to overcome this life which is not easy at all.

    I wrote in my book Shin Hagakure: "Life is not a bed of roses"; so we need a compass ... this compass is the samurai culture for me ... this compass is the sword, for the Niten students.
    I want to celebrate this day with you all. And those who aren´t yet a samurai warrior, I want to invite to try out how good it is to be a samurai warrior.
    I will transmit a phrase from a monk Nissen Shounin, that worth for those 25 years that I have spent at the Niten Institute: "It is okay to be hated if the sincere feeling of helping others remains until the end."
    (he repeats)
    "It is okay to be hated if the sincere feeling of helping others remains until the end."
    Thanks to this thought I could be able to be understood.
    Thanks to that we´ll move forward, bringing happiness and liberation for all of our students.
    Arigatou
