The Religion of the Samurai: A Study of Zen Philosophy and Discipline in China and Japan

Zen was uniquely suited to the Samurai of Japan. The high moral principles of Buddhism, when adopted and adapted by the Japanese warriors who became the Samurai, created an austere philosophy of singular beauty and depth. Its characteristic requirements of strict control over body and mind was exemplified by ancient warrior monks whose serene countenance, even in the face of certain death, made them much admired even by their foes.

Zen may be the most misunderstood of the world's moral philosophies. While it is often classified as a Religion, it is frequently considered by its adherents to be a utilitarian philosophy, a collection of rational moral precepts or, even more simply, as a state of being. The aim of the practice of Zen is to become Enlightened and achieve the beatitude of Nirvana.

To reach Nirvana means to achieve the state of extinction of pain and the annihilation of sin. Zen never looks for the realization of its beatitude in a place like heaven, nor believes in the realm of Reality transcendental of the phenomenal universe, nor gives countenance to the superstition of Immortality, nor does it hold the world is the best of all possible worlds, nor conceives life simply as blessing. It is in this life, full of shortcomings, misery, and sufferings, that Zen hopes to realize its beatitude. It is in this world, imperfect, changing, and moving, that Zen finds the Divine Light it worships. It is in this phenomenal universe of limitation and relativity that Zen aims to attain to highest Nirvana.

Your Kingdom Calling: 3 Keys to Discovering Your Calling and Purpose in the Kingdom of God

Would it change your life if you knew ...

* Why you are here--and why you are the way you are.

* Why your life matters--and why no part of you is an accident.

* Your role in the work that God is doing in the world

Here is the truth:

1. You are not your own designer

2. God designed your calling right into you in the form of gifts or "talents" that he's given you

3. Using these talents is simple--it's a matter of manifesting the kingdom of God by manifesting God's will and character through your gifts.

Few areas in the Christian life carry more baggage and shame than that of "calling." Most of us feel like we're missing it--and that deep down, we're a disappointment to God.

But Scripture contains powerful keys to unlock this trap of shame and release every Christian into their unique purpose, calling, and place in the kingdom of God.

In this short, easy-to-read ebook, author and speaker Rachel Starr Thomson takes you on a journey of discovery: to find your purpose and calling in the kingdom of God and learn to walk with clarity, confidence, and joy in it.
