Re: O' Sensei's View on Sword Training

My western mind is definitely struggling with Zen and eastern concepts. I was expecting that I was just not understanding the message in it's entirety.

I read it as an admonition. That's my misunderstanding. I didn't read anything literally saying that this poem means sword work training is wrong. That's why I was confused.

I'm glad to have received so many good responses. I have certainly gained more understanding of from them.
