Miyamoto Musashi – The Book of Five Rings
mp3 | English | 146 MB
The book appears at first to be written simply; it stated the obvious. Written at a time when perhaps things were simpler.
This is NOT a book to read in one sitting, though you easily could.
Read just a bit, then put it down and walk away. Allow what you have read to be mulled over in your mind.
The book is really complex. It contains secrets to living every day, for dealing with everyone you encounter no matter what their state of mind is. It contains secrets about how to do business.
The title is a translation. Like English, words can have multiple meanings. What is translated into the word “ring” can also be translated into “spheres” which I think is a more appropriate translation. The sphere is the most perfect thing in the universe. Beginning at a point and drawing the ring/sphere/circle you will get to a point where the line begins again upon itself. This is a key to understanding the book.
