Description


Teachings on fearlessness, compassion, and love of nature by the founder of the Japanese martial art of aikido--now part of the Shambhala Pocket Library.

These inspirational teachings show that the real way of the warrior is based on compassion, wisdom, fearlessness, and love of nature. Drawn from the talks and writings of Morihei Ueshiba, founder of the popular Japanese martial art known as aikido, The Art of Peace offers a nonviolent way to victory and a convincing counterpoint to such classics as Musashi's Book of Five Rings and Sun Tzu's Art of War.
