General forum on Mahayana.
Mushashi is the subject of lore and legend and thusly there are differing accounts.....my account has Mushashi abandoning the sword and devoting the later years of his life at a certain mountain retreat, as a solitary retreatant.
But apparently accounts differ.
"This order considers that progress can be achieved more rapidly during a single month of self-transformation through terrifying conditions in rough terrain and in "the abode of harmful forces" than through meditating for a period of three years in towns and monasteries"....Takpo Tashi Namgyal.
