Over the past year I have come to embrace the true meaning of the Japanese concept of Shugyo. My hope is that you will gain a new perspective after reading this article towards how you approach success in your own life and the role your Shugyo plays. Awareness of the Japanese term Shugyo is new to me. Since the s, the majority of my training and cultural experience in the martial arts originated from Korea. That all changed a couple of years ago when I started branching out to seminars that gave me exposure to systems and philosophies from other cultures.

Well, not exactly ramadan, as I am an atheist though not irreligious , but I co-opt the month to do my own sort of spiritual and physical discipline for the same reason I have tried Lent before. During this period I fast during daylight hours, allowing myself only a banana and a piece of chocolate before 6am if I have asageiko on that day, otherwise I eat no food until 7pm-ish, or around about whatever time the sun sets. If I have keiko in the evening it means I may not sit down to eat until after 9pm. As I may do anything from one to three keiko sessions some of these days, I do allow myself to drink water or maybe a cup of black coffee. This is, to me, an important part of my personal shugyo, of which budo is a part. Spiritual discipline is often an unconscious by-product of this process, even if will and intention are missing on the students side as a teacher, I hope to instil it. I also noted that most other kendo teachers practised less and worked at improving more casually than their students. Just under a year and half ago I published The Shugyo Spiral , which included this dodgy! These are used interchangeably by native Japanese speakers but there is, actually, an important nuance in meaning that is relevant to todays discussion.
Practicing and Studying
That which is formless penetrates that which allows no entry. Because of this truth I know the benefit of taking no action. Teaching without words. And the benefit of taking no action are without compare in the universe.
International Copyright January 28, Dr. When I received my inner calling as a Zen priest in , I choose "Shugyo Daijo" for my Japanese ordination name and continue to embody it as the expression of my true commitment as a Zen teacher and Dharma holder. In brief, I define "Shugyo" as "continuous daily practice". The Japanese word "Daijo" can be translated as "Great Way".
