Today’s topic “Ken Zen IchiNyo”The Body and Mindare One
The topic is a Japanese phrase which though literally translates as sword mind oneness, means mind body oneness. This idea / principle has a historical legacy since the times of Shoguns, Samurai in Japan.
The sword (ken) was the universally used weapon then. In this context it refers to the physical body. Zen (Dhyan, Chuan) or mindfulness is the meditative method. When both are used in harmony, bringing them together in practice, it gives great results. Like Yin and Yang both are complimentary to each other. These practices are still prevalent in some of the present day Martial Arts Teachers’ trainings. RenshiLautkar also mentioned systems like Vipassana which are using our mental faculties to study, observe our body and bring about combined holistic development. Thus the mind and body work in tandem supporting each other. RenshiLautkar was gracious to acknowledge that he focused on this topic due to the participation of other webinar participants. He used his experience in this field to elaborate. Renshi Sanjay Athavale, Renshi-PramodJambhulkar, Kyoshi- Harish Choube told Weather it may be sports or life one has to work hard and so hard work is appreciated but at the end Results matters the most.
