    A smile forms effortlessly as a result of a gift given on the reader s birthday When the sword falls on the reader, the sword is defeated by the smile In his abode, deep in the mountains, where the waterfalls come down, drawn by a single stroke of the pen, a book review is written in the style of mushin The key strokes fall one after the other like rain drops on a thatch roof a comma is never spilled, a thought never wasted the smile retains its integrity.

    Lectura que te deja ense anzas que puedes aplicar en tu vida diaria, tal vez algunas por el car cter del samurai mas encaminadas al combate pero que resalta el conectar su cuerpo y esp ritu, siendo valiente y humilde para afrontar todo lo que traiga la vida.
