- According to the Samurai, honor is one of the seven principals of Bushido, which are seven pillars or values which make up the system by which a Japanese warrior should conduct himself.
JUSTICE: Justice is the principle of moral rightness, as applied to the administration of law. This requires more than just every one receiving a fair deal. It also requires a strict upholding of right for its own sake, no matter what the cost.
COURAGE: Courage is that state of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger with self-possession, confidence, and resolution. Courage is required to support justice. Justice without force to support it is ineffective.
BENEVOLENCE: Benevolence, or kindness, creates within a person a feeling of empathy for another's distress. The discomfort such empathy causes impels them to lessen the distress of the other person. Benevolence had to be required to prevent courage from becoming a rashness that would perpetrate the very ills the code was designed to lessen.
POLITENESS: Politeness is that attitude marked consideration for others, correct manners, and tact. During the age of the Samurai, failure in politeness could literally cause one to lose his head. Even today, the Japanese are marked by their strict attention to politeness.
VERACITY: Veracity or truthfulness. This was so strict a requirement that once a Samurai swore his blood oath of fealty to his Daimyo, he never again signed another contract. The word of a Samurai was considered to be as good a guarantee as one could get.
HONOR: Honor is a keen sense of personal integrity which is maintained without legal or other obligation. It is knowing the difference between right and wrong and striving always to do what is right. Impugning the honor of a Samurai was a blood challenge. For a Samurai to lose his honor was so serious a matter that the only sufficient apology that he could make was seppuku, ritual suicide.
LOYALTY: Loyalty is the act of being faithful and steadfast to one's homeland, government, or leader. Though the Daimyo are no more, loyalty is still sought after by heads of state, employers and supervisors. The student of Bushido should learn these virtues and apply them to the martial arts today, both on and off the field of battle.
