Here is a bit on what the Bushido is. Dictionary.com says this:

Bu·shi·do also bu·shi·do
The traditional code of the Japanese samurai, stressing honor, self-discipline, bravery, and simple living.

Bushido was the philosophy of the samurai, or bushi (military gentry), as they were commonly called. It has often been compared to the code of chivalry followed by European knights. Perhaps bushido’s aim was the same, namely to provide a code of honor and rules for living for the country’s armed forces. But bushido is uniquely a thing of the East. It was born of a blend of Buddhism, Chu-Tsu, Confucius and Shinto, and though officially introduced in the seventeenth century, it was ingrained in the bushi from the time of their origin.

Following are the eight principles of bushido:

Jin – to develop a sympathetic understanding of people
Gi – to preserve the correct ethics
Chu – to show loyalty to one’s master
Ko – to respect and to care for one’s parents
Rei – to show respect for others
Chi – to enhance wisdom by broadening one’s knowledge
Shin – to be truthful at all times
Tei – to care for the aged and those of a humble station

It’s getting weird around here, huh?
