Spirit of the Warrior is the second book in the Samurai Tetralogy by A. R. Basov.

Initially released in 2004, Spirit of the Warrior has enjoyed popularity in Russia and has become the handbook of admirers of the Bushi-Do Wisdom. It is popular among those who practice martial arts, as well as those who have an interest in medieval studies or our life from a spiritual point of view.

For what did the great warriors of Japan live and die? What is the sacred mission of a samurai? What is truly essential, not only for a medieval Japanese knight, but also for every true man of any epoch? You will find the answers to these questions in the new book, Spirit of the Warrior:  The Philosophy of Will by A. R. Basov.

Spirit of the Warrior is a creative research on the legacy of samurai. It contains numerous aphorisms and sayings of Japanese warriors, stories, and philosophical reflections. The focus of the book is the concept of Will - the basis of Bushi-Do. The book casts light on several aspects of the esoteric Samurai Doctrine which cannot be missed if you truly seek to comprehend Bushi-Do...
