Warriorship - by Sensei Robert Joshin Althouse

Interesting Dharma talk:

We are always in need of Bodhisattva warriors. This is why the traditions of warriorship are so sacred in other cultures. Such cultures had extensive rituals and rites of passage for transforming soldiers into warriors. We have very few of these rites of passage left in our society today. And what we see are the broken young men and women returning from war, many unable to find their way back home, in a civilian culture that is strange and foreign to them.
