The Book of
Book - The spirit of the Ni Ten Ichi school
of strategy is based on water, and this Water Book explains methods of victory
as the long-sword form of the Ichi school. Language does not extend to
explaining the Way in detail, but it can be grasped intuitively. Study this
book; read a word then ponder on it. If you interpret the meaning loosely you
will mistake the Way.
The principles of strategy are written down here in terms of single combat, but you must think broadly so that you attain an understanding for ten-thousand-a-side battles.
Strategy is different from other things in that if you mistake the Way even a little you will become bewildered and fall into bad ways.
If you merely read this book you will not reach the Way of strategy. Absorb the things written in this book. Do not just read, memorize or imitate, but so that you realise the principle from within your own heart study hard to absorb these things into your body.
