Yojokun : life lessons from a samurai by Ekiken Kaibara( Book )

5 editions published between 1713 and 1813 in Japanese and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ekiken's basic premise is simple: at birth, we are all given, with rare exception, a body meant to last 100 years. How we take care of it mentally, spiritually, and physically determines whether we will live out our life to the fullest, and enjoy it to the limit. The key lies in moderation, controlling our desires, appreciating the right things, and regulating the life force within. With copious notes based on the Chinese classics, his medical practice, extensive travel, and life all around him, the samurai doctor slowly unveils his Way of Nurturing Life, a method surprisingly intuitive and startlingly appropriate even today, nearly 300 years after it was first written. Translator William Scott Wilson notes Ekiken's relevance for the twenty-first century: "The Yojokun is not just a quaint vestige of Orientalia, but a living guide to a traditional Way to live and maintain a balanced health. If we do not immediately understand some of its more exotic prescripts, it may be wiser not to dismiss them outright, but to approach the work as Ekiken himself might have: with humility, curiosity, respect, and imagination."--Publisher
