States of Mind: Fudoshin

We've talked about mushin before, but there is another mental state called "fudoshin" that is often translated as immoveable mind. It's a popular concept in some circles, and wrote this blog post about it. What do you think? Is it a useful concept?

Re: States of Mind: Fudoshin

This was my thought 8 years ago. I have not had occasion to significantly alter it...
