Virtues in the Martial Arts
Bibliography, Links, Resources, Quotes, Notes


Note: When this webpage was first created in 2004 it reflected my interest in the topics presented
in Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa.  In September, 2005, in began its expansion
into the topics of martial virtues, Buddhism and the martial arts, bushido, the code of the warrior,
military ethics, courage, etc..  Tibetan Buddhism, indcluding Tantric practices and yoga are 
covered on another webpage.
