A Collection of Thoughts, Sayings and Meditations on the Way of the Samurai "It is said that what is called "the spirit of an age" is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation." — Tsunetomo Yamamoto, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai A formerly secret text known only to the Samurai, Hagakure is a classic text on Bushido--the Way of the Warrior. More than just a handbook for battle, Hagakure is a text that filled with teachings that still apply in business, political and social situations today.

Warrior ethics have been studied in famous books and popular movies such as Shogun and The Last Samurai with Tom Cruise. The Hagakure was originally written in the early 1700s over a seven year period. Dictated by Yamamoto Tsunetomo to an assistant, the book was never meant to be published, but after Tsunetomo's death the assistant published it to honor his master. Inside this ancient text are all the deep and mysterious ways of the Samurai. Page after page of topics unfold, ranging from the best way to face death to not looking foolish in a rainstorm. The Hagakure is chock full of Zen-like wisdom and maxims, and presents a revealing look at history's greatest warrior society, Japan in the age of the Samurai. Many use The Hagakure today as a guidebook on ethics, while others are awestruck by this glimpse at the Samurai's way of thinking.

The comprehensive and accurate edition of the Hagakure is a must-have for serious martial artists or fans of samurai and the bushido code. The Hagakure is one of the most influential of all Japanese texts—written nearly 300 years ago by Yamamoto Tsunetomo to summarize the very essence of the Japanese Samurai bushido ("warrior") spirit. Its influence has been felt throughout the world and yet its existence is scarcely known to many Westerners. This is the first translation to include the complete first two books of the Hagakure and the most reliable and authentic passages contained within the third book; all other English translations published previously have been extremely fragmentary and incomplete. Alex Bennett's completely new and highly readable translation of this essential work includes extensive footnotes that serve to fill in many cultural and historical gaps in the previous translations. This unique combination of readability and scholarship gives Hagakure: The Secret Wisdom of the Samurai a distinct advantage over all previous English editions.

Hagakure que significa "oculto bajo las hojas", es un antiguo brevario de caballería inspirado en el célebre código Bushido. Nos expone la vía del guerrero, cuyos preceptos filosóficos y ética trascendental presentan al Bushi. Bushido es la aceptación total de la vida, vivir incluso cuando ya no tenemos deseos de vivir.

Escrita entre 1710 y 1717 por el samuray Jocho Yamamoto, esta obra, uno de los textos más importantes de la cultura japonesa, estuvo celosamente guardada por el clan de los Nabeshima durante más de 150 años, hasta la resutación Meiji en que fue divulgada. Este código de conducta moral fue el manual de instrucción tanto de daimios como de samuráis durante todo este tiempo, y su posesión fue considerada un alto privilegio. El texto, compuesto de sentencias filosóficas, exalta la Vía del Samuray desde la perspectiva de un viejo guerrero convertido en monje y retirado del mundo. El título original del libro, compuesto de 11 volúmenes, es el de colección de frases del maestro Hagakure , palabra que significa tras el follaje y, según parece, se refiere a la cabaña en la que se retiró Yamamoto y donde era visitado por un discípulo escriba que recogió sus sentencias, reflexiones y pensamientos. Un libro al que el público japonés sólo tuvo acceso a principios de este siglo y que ahora, con esta su primera traducción en español, podemos disponer de una obra vivificante y de alto valor filosófico.
