"One thousand days of lessons for discipline; ten thousand days of lessons for master"
Bushido is a code of conduct that emerged in Japan from the Samurai, or Japanese warriors, who spread their ideals throughout society.
Bushido drew inspiration from Confucianism and system of beliefs that places a great deal of importance on loyalty and duty.
The Bushido code contains eight key principles or virtues that warriors were expected to uphold.
Gi (Righteousness), Yu – (Courage), Jin (Compassion), Rei (Respect), Makoto (Integrity), Meiyo (Honor), Chugi (Loyalty), and Jisei (Self Control).
“Honour may not win power, but it wins respect. And respect earns power.” – Ishida Mitsunari
In the 21st century, our cyber-samurais uphold the cyber-bushido code to the cyber-end.
First, stay true to ourselves. When fealty is given to our customers, this must not be abandoned even under difficult circumstances.
Similar to justice, courage entails deciphering what is right and wrong. Courage requires the strength not only to perceive but also to act.
Respect means that you acknowledge your regard for the experiences and feelings of others. In order to collaborate with another person, kindness must be employed.
Compassion is the ability to manifest love and sympathy through patience. It also requires attempting to see the world from the perspective of another.
The Cyber-Bushido Code
The word “bushi,” a synonym for warrior, serves as a root for the word “Bushido.” The word Samurai roughly translates to “those who serve,” at bladestack.io, our cyber-warriors are here to serve.
Justice is a core value of the cyber-Samurai. Incorporating the cyber-Bushido principle of justice into our lives requires reflecting on what is fair and upholding the value of upstanding moral character.
Bushido teaches that men should behave according to an absolute moral standard, one that transcends logic. What’s right is right, and what’s wrong is wrong. The difference between good and bad and between right and wrong are givens, not arguments subject to discussion or justification, and a true cyber-samurai should know the difference
When you are able to maintain your own highest standards of integrity – regardless of what others may do – you are destined for greatness.
Cyber-Samurai are cyber-warriors who upheld a sense of self worth and lived by the highest code of conduct. In order to abide by the principle of honor, we must acknowledge our moral responsibilities.
