only true samurai understand thethe value of honor and dignity.Protect your world, uphold lofty thoughts - that's calling the hero, ready to sacrifice their lives for their opinions.If we are so turned to a life that any other way does not have enough, you need to be prepared with purified consciousness and grim determination to resort to ritual suicide.
Japanese pinpointed the whereabouts of the soul - is not in the heel, and in the abdomen.And determining patented a beautiful view of death - hara-kiri.How do hara-kiri in detail spelled out in the bushido - the samurai code.Early in the morning, comb and putting pigtail (who do not have it, it is necessary specifically to commit harakiri to grow), only fasting Samurai wears a kimono and wrote a farewell tercet.Suit ink, but blood is much better.
for harakiri suit not every pla
upper part of the kimono to be lowered to the knees, the sleeve - tied under the knees.This prevents the body ignominiously thrown back.Code of Conduct Samurai felting on the floor does not accept.In order to properly do harakiri, sharp knife kusungobu need to take in your right hand.And keeping a straight face, rip the belly.
Starting with the left side, must carry out suicide dagger slit to the right and decisive flick draw a bloody line down from the lower edge of the diaphragm to the navel.Note - the process of ripping the stomach is very painful.Injuries to the penetration into the abdominal cavity comparable in pain intensity with any other kind of wounds.
