Book excerpt: Twenty-five years ago renowned Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche introduced teachings of the Shambhala warrior tradition-teachings that show how we could live as enlightened citizens and help create an advanced society based on fearlessness and non-aggression. Now Awake Mind, Open Heart makes these teachings accessible to the widest possible audience. Author Cynthia Kneen, who has conducted Shambhala Training workshops for more than twenty years, shows us how to develop personal power through direct, genuine experience and how to cultivate natural bravery, authenticity, and gentleness. Directed especially to readers new to Shambhala Buddhism, she also teaches how to develop genuine dignity by connecting to the strength and wisdom of the world as it is, and how to transform fear into fearlessness. This is an invaluable introduction to these ancient Tibetan teachings.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Far from the Shogun's court at Edo, Most Honorable Investigator Sano Ichiro begins the most challenging case of his career. Upon the insistence of his strong-willed and beautiful wife Reiko, Sano arrives with her at the emperor's palace to unmask the murderer--who possesses the secret of kiai, "the spirit city," a powerful scream that can kill instantly. A high Kyoto official is the victim. Treading carefully through a web of spies, political intrigue, forbidden passions, and intricate plots, Sano and Reiko must struggle to stay ahead of the palace storm--and outwit a cunning killer. But as they soon discover, solving the case means more than their survival. For if they fail, Japan could be consumed in the bloodiest war it has ever seen... A legendary land comes alive in this compelling murder mystery set in seventeenth-century Japan. Filled with finely drawn characters and suspenseful plot twists, Laura Joh Rowland's The Samurai's Wife is a novel as complex, vivid, and artful as the glorious, lost world it portrays.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ischuru Yakimoto was one of the most skilled samurai warriors in Japan. But even his skill couldn't save him when he came upon the body of a prostitute in a wayside inn and, in a rage, dispatched her murderer-the Emperor's nephew. Such a crime was punishable by death, and almost at once, Yakimoto and the young orphan boy who was his companion became hunted criminals, relentlessly pursued by the Imperial Guard. Thus began Yakimoto's incredible adventure, as a "ghost" from a higher world took him under its protection, saved him time and again from certain capture, and began to teach him the secret ways of spiritual growth and non-violence. The "ghost" possessed magical powers, and Yakimoto vowed that one day he would have those same powers. But first he had to escape the Imperial Guard. And then he had to make his way across the sea to China, and through a forbidding countryside-the boy beside him-to a mysterious temple and an ancient master who himself possessed those same powers and who had counseled the "ghost" in its physical life on earth. It was only after years of meditation, and a final, terrifying confrontation with his most tenacious enemy, that Yakimoto learned the truth about the universe-and himself. A deft blend of action and adventure, mysticism and philosophy, The Drifter and the Samurai tells a provocative tale of one man's difficult journey from violence to enlightenment.

Book excerpt: When Keiko chooses duty over love, she wonders if the code of the samurai is worth the heartache. Leaving Edo to save the life of a man she once loved, Keiko must give up everything she has worked for. She vows one day to return, but she has learned the hard lesson that the gods have a dark sense of humor. The city of Kobe seems a world away from Edo, a place where she could disappear, become whoever she wants to be, and leave the way of the samurai behind her. But the code of bushido is not so easily discarded. Even as Keiko makes new friends, new allies, and explores new dreams, her duty calls to her. Torn between a life of joy and a life of honor, Keiko knows that she can never truly have both.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Presenting a revised edition with a new preface of this important work, previously available only in hardback. It has long been assumed that Japan's closed country policy meant that Japan was isolated from the influence of the outside, and in particular the Western, world. However, this study of 18th century Japan, using sources wholly unstudied since their writing, reveals the profound influence that the introduction of Western technology and scientific instruments including glass, lenses and mirrors had on Japanese notions of sight, and how this change in perception was reflected most clearly in popular culture. Screech goes to the core of later eighteenth century thought through popular objects and the propositions which many considered groundbreaking on the book's first publication in 1996 have yet to be substantially challenged.

Summary Book Review Akira Kurosawa and Modern Japan :

Download or read book in PDF Akira Kurosawa and Modern Japan written by David A. Conrad and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2022-04-26 with total page 260 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The samurai films of legendary Japanese director Akira Kurosawa are set in the past, but they tell us much about the present, as do his crime stories, romances, military films, medical dramas and art films. His movies are beloved for their timeless protagonists and haunting vistas of old Japan, but we haven't yet fully grasped everything they can teach us about modern Japan. Kurosawa's films evolved as Japan redefined and reinvented itself, from movies made for the wartime regime to those made amid the trials of American occupation. From the lavish epics of the economic miracle years to searching masterpieces made with international assistance in a globalizing world, Kurosawa's movies responded to changing times. This detailed study of all 30 of Kurosawa's films analyzes the links between the thrilling narratives onscreen and the equally remarkable events that occurred in Japan over his long, productive career. This book explores how Kurosawa's classics depict the political, economic, cultural, sexual and environmental upheavals of a nation at the center of a turbulent century, both directly and through period-piece mythmaking.
