Examine the paradox of Zen as a philosophy of both compassion and combat. Explore Zen Buddhism as it applies to the warrior, sustaining him both morally and philosophically. Learn how a great Zen Master must be familiar with both the sword of life and the sword of death, and know when and how to wield either of them. Grasp the meaning and symbolism of the sword and the code of bushido, the way of the warrior. D.T. Suzuki was Japan's foremost authority on Zen Buddhism prior to his death in 1966. Zen and the Samurai is part of a series of programs taken from Suzuki's Zen and Japanese Culture.
