1. The Beginning of the Descent of the Samurai:
Bushido, the lkilitary-Knigbt—Ways of the ancient warrior elite, gave birth to a kind of courage that none can defeat.
Out of the fire 0± eternal energy, from the Cosmos deep, the power of the Almighty sent forth the warrior from a sleep. Forged from the ancient crucible of power, the warrior came forth to make evil cower.
A courage of daring and bearing, formed his soul with sincere caring.
Armed with the strength of an eternal code, for justice, the warrior rode. Through the vortex of time the warrior did stride, to serve humankind from the other side. With a stoic composure in the sight of danger, the warrior knew death not as a stranger. Faith, courage and confidence do not know fear, but by the Code did the warrior see and hear.
An instrument of service and love of the law, the warrior seldom found his character with a flaw. The warrior’s spiritual mind force was strong, with a sense of duty and honor forever long.
To preserve humanity and justice to defend, casting evil in the abyss of time’s end. Life, the timeless cycle, embraced by the warrior’s mind, the warrior pursued evil in any form or kind.
The eternal search for the spirit’s perfection, led the warrior in many a direction.
Through tunnels of timeless discovery, self-knowledge and enlightenment provide recovery. From beginning to end, the power emanates from the One, as the vital essence glows and shines under the sun. The warrior spirit grows within and is beyond pride, in its persence, many do run and hide.
The gathering of the wind, earth, waters, fire and the void did come, evolving in mystery, and understood by only some.
There is nothing that cannot be touched by the power, from the largest mountain, to the smallest flower. For in the beginning, the warrior was there, always ready for the task to bear.
The warrior spirit does shine and thunder, without hesitation driving evil asunder.
