SAMURAI WISDOM—UESUGI KENSHIN—
Uesugi Kenshin—Japan's fiercest warrior—fought not for glory, but to restore order. We learn from the wisdom of this supremely successful commander.
Kenshin worshiped Bishamonten, the god of battle
Kenshin and his arch-enemy Takeda Shingen battled five times over 11 years
"First Principle" is the Buddha's truth, the state of enlightenment
Ramie cultivation and linen production encouraged by Kenshin is still carried on today
