In the initiation to the priesthood of the Shaolin Buddhist Monastery in China, the candidate had to lift a huge, boiling hot, metal vessel with raised symbols on it that would, subsequently, be branded into the arm. One symbol is the dragon (Revelation 12:9), the other the tiger.
The force behind Buddhism, transcendental meditation, and the martial arts is Satan.
He is the tempter, the adversary, the thief, the murderer from the beginning, the accuser, the prince of lies, that old serpent. The devil has many faces, and teaches many shades of deception, but his purpose is the same as in Christ’s day. His sole purpose is TO STEAL, AND TO KILL AND TO DESTROY! (John 10:10)
One of the colorful rites of the Zen Buddhist Bushido code of the Samurai is seppuku, or hara-kiri. (This is the act of ritual suicide by method of disembowelment).
The reason Zen Buddhism allowed murder and suicide is because of the rejection of Buddha’s scriptures. Each Samurai warrior carried two swords in his sash. The long sword for killing, and a short sword for committing seppuku, or hara-kiri.
Women were equally Samurai, and could carry swords, also. Almost all Samurai women, however, carried short swords to escape torture, defilement, or to keep from betraying husband, or liege lord. Women were always under the authority of men. To their liege first, the head of the clan second, and the father or husband third.
Men and women alike were expected to commit ritual suicide, if ordered by the feudal liege lord. Reasons for committing suicide could stem from disobedience, old age, failure, lack of faithfulness, injury, or losing in battle. Many times Samurai would petition their superior for permission to commit seppuku, if their dishonor was great enough.
Men committed seppuku, or hara-kiri, by running their short swords into their bowels below the navel, turning the handle after the plunge, 180 degrees, then cutting upward. After the man removed his knife, he then cut his throat.
Later, his appointed second removed the head with a single stroke of his sword. This kept the contortion of the excruciating pain from showing on his facial features, thus not dishonoring him. After the abdominal cuts were made, the bowels spilled out in his lap.
This is the reason for the name, “The ritual of disembowelment”. The head was then washed, the hair neatly combed, and sent for inspection to the liege lord, or authority that ordered the suicide.
Depending on the circumstances of death, the head is given to the family, put on public display, or spit on and thrown into a dung heap.
Women were not allowed this method. They were only allowed to cut their throat. Special robe, ceremony and honor were given to this ritual. Martial arts students who are already full of Buddhism spirits (demons), karate spirits, eastern religion spirits, reincarnation, meditation, hypnosis, arrogance, and false sense of honor, are wide open to the introduction of demons of suicide when they read literature about the Samurai.
The history of the Japanese martial arts of karate, jujitsu, and judo has its roots in the occult, murder, suicide, and cruelty beyond belief.
