Japanese Culture: Bushido Code of Conduct and Tips for a Modern Samurai

Samurai warriors don’t exist today, however Samurai cultural legacy, principles of life and code of conduct (bushido, ‘the way of the warrior’) serve as a great source of knowledge and are deeply ingrained in Japanese culture. We see our everyday life and especially business environment as a place to compete, achieve and over-perform. Referring to Japanese wisdom of Samurai has been insightful to approach modern battlefields. This unique philosophy valued honour, reckless bravery and selflessness, as well as duty to the warrior’s master with the purpose of giving up one’s life and embracing death. There was no place for fear in the way of the warrior and this conduct of self discipline and respectful, ethical behaviour was to become the role model behaviour for modern lifestyle. In this one hour online talk we will explore 7 principles of Samurai philosophy and examine the everyday practices that can help us to sustain this behaviour.
