Nihonto Meditation

Many samurai were meditation masters.

Many of the decorative Nihonto were order-made by recognized swordsmiths and Nihonto masters for wealthy samurai families. They were meant to be guardians that prevented evil spirit and uneasy energy from coming into their houses.  They were typically sitting on the most sacred and peaceful spot in the house, receiving sincere appreciation from the family members as well as the house guests. There is no doubt that many samurai were meditation masters.  Having created a sacred spot in the house, they were expected to remain calm and focused all the time.  Today there are many antique items in samurai household discovered to be so effective for successful meditation even in this modern time.  Nihonto is one of them.
