This is a book filled with short, inspiring stories reminding me of "Zen Flesh, Zen Bones".
Kurozumi Munetada taught that devotion to Amaterasu, filial piety and true, unrestrained compassion were essential to Living the Way. Of course, using a simple sentence to explain a Way is like trying to capture the essence of a reflection of the moon in the water using crayons. It's confusing, awkward, and you miss the living essence what is trying to be captured.

My only gripe - the stories were recorded by his followers who, in their fierce sense of traditional Japanese loyalty and appreciation, revere him without question.

I find this book to be very inspiring, and enjoy reading the stories to my children and sharing them with others. If you are a spiritually minded person, this will prove very useful to you. If you are a history buff, you will find interest in reading about this person, and how he was so important to many despite being "just a country priest." The devotion of this man to Amaterasu Omikami or Great Kami has certainly made my recovery from surgery much more tolerable thus far.

I am glad to see Shinto texts translated into English, but this one did not do it for me. The stories were well translated and easy to read, but lacked some of the suspense other texts like The Pillowbook of Sei Shonagon or Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. In other words, if you want a book that has repeating themes of supplication and honor without the shock of Zen or the intrigue of gossip, this is the book for you.
