honor


i found this…while looking over my links

it struck a cord with me, so I thought I’d post it, and share

The Three Vows of Honor
I vow to honor my foe and call his blows fairly and trust that he is fair in turn
I vow to honor my chosen ancestors, to learn well their weapons and the manner in which they wield them.
I vow to honor my hosts, to learn well their weapons and the manner in which they wield them.It has been said by some that the warriors of the Orient do not act like guests among us and upset the tranquility of the Kingdom.(Samurai do not act like guests)(Samurai mar my medieval groove)
The Three Vows of Harmony
I vow to remember that I am a guest within this society and show gratitude for the hospice.
I vow to keep my arms, armour, and dress suitable to my station.
I vow to show respect to the King, the Peers of the Realm, the Nobles and Barons, and all the populace of the Kingdom.
The Three Vows of Knowledge
I vow to learn deeply of the ways and customs of my chosen ancestors
– to honor, cherish, and emulate them.
I vow to learn deeply of the ways and customs of my hosts
– to honor, cherish, and emulate them.
I vow to share what I learn to those who wish to know but never preach to

– The Honorable Lord Otagiri Tatsuzou, Outlands, October 25, 2005.*
