Re: "Muto"

The book "The Life Giving Sword" is an English translation of the Heiho Kadensho for those of us who don't read Japanese. From what I remember (that's always shaky) the author's translations come pretty close to what Jun wrote.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
