The Last Samurai (2003) Emperor Meiji: Tell me how he died.
Algren: I will tell you how he lived. love good films ….. and The Last Samurai (2003) is one of them and must have watched it several times and even today also …. a good film makes you live a life …. all colours …. life in everything comes from love ….. love to life and love to death ….
Birth is like start of the film , death is like end of the film , life is to watch the film to know our role and divine’s part.
knowing divine’s part is art of witnessing the film …..
life is a duration of the film ….. it does not matter what role we play whether long or short ….what matters is how we play ….. different names, different roles, different films but on screen comes the original name mostly at the end of the film but blessed one those who comes to know their original name during the film …..
knowing the original name during the film is enlightenment and enlightenment is to play role of life naturally ….
Name has no meaning and meaning has no name ,only God is name of meaning and that is our original name but good artist live to the name of the film naturally …..like all artist live to their screen names in ….THE LAST SAMURAI.
death in a film is like death in a real life ….. where we all get ready for the next roles ….. in next life or next film with a different name and different role ….
but we must remember difficult roles comes to fine artists only ….so when life gives us difficult role …. think in eyes of God we are good artists …
so look at the people in difficult situations with love , with compassion in the heart ….. knowing that these people are good artist in the eyes of God ..
so love all….some more quotes from the film ….
[Katsumoto hands a samurai sword to Algren, it has a message written on it]
Algren: What does it say?
Katsumoto: “I belong to the warrior in whom the old ways have joined the new.”
Algren: There is Life in every breath…
Katsumoto: That is, Bushido. 武士道
Bushidō (武士道?), meaning “Way of the Warrior-Knight”, is a Japanese word which is used to describe a uniquely Japanese code of conduct and a way of the samurai life, and concept of chivalry. It originates from the samurai moral code and stresses frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor unto death.
many time people ask ….. is there a life after death ?
not sure about this but there is definitely a life before death …is my answer …
Not twice this day, Inch time foot gem , This day will not come again, Each minute is worth a priceless gem.
Zen master ” TAKUN ”
happiness breath to breath is a priceless gem …. so enjoy this film of life …
