Loyalty part 1

Sawaki Roshi: When Hojo's troops attacked Masashige Kusunoki's Chihaya castle, it was said that fallen warriors of the Hojo Clan were praised by their friends as they met "gloroius death" on the battlefield:

" A man lays down his life in vain for the sake of fame, why doesn't he give up clinging to life for the sake of the Dharma?"


  1. Lauren,

    This is a tuff one. It's tuff to let go of clinging when I'm not sure if I'll be able to make the bills.
