The Seven Virtues of Bushido

In consideration of the divisiveness created by the current U.S. Presidential race, we wanted to share something a bit more centered and uplifting, the virtues of Bushido.

The Bushido code is typified by seven virtues (as visioned by Nitobe Inazo):Bushido

  1. Rectitude ( gi) – morally correct behavior
  2. Courage ( yū) – strength in the face of fear and adversity
  3. Benevolence ( jin) – a disposition to do the good, right thing
  4. Respect ( rei) – actions and conduct to others reflecting esteem and deference
  5. Honesty ( makoto) – high principles in telling the truth
  6. Honour (名誉 meiyo) – quality of worthiness and respectability
  7. Loyalty (忠義 chūgi) – strong feeling of allegiance, support, and devotion

Nitobe Inazō (新渡戸 稲造, September 1, 1862 – October 15, 1933) was a Japanese agricultural economist, author, educator, diplomat, politician, and Christian during the pre-World War II period.  By published by 東洋文化協會 (The Eastern Culture Association) – The Japanese book “幕末・明治・大正 回顧八十年史” (Memories for 80 years, Bakumatsu, Meiji, Taisho), Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=32816856.
