Expression of Zen inspiration in everyday activities such as writing or serving tea, and in knightly arts such as fencing, came to be highly regarded in the Japanese tradition. In the end some of them were practised as spiritual training as themselves; they were the n called ‘Ways’. This book, first published in 1978, includes translations of some rare texts on Zen and the Ways. One is a sixteenth-century Zen text complied from Kamakura temple records of the previous three centuries; others are translated from the ‘secret scrolls’ of fencing, archery, Judo and so on.
