i watched the movie ghost dog:the way of the samurai. and i bought the book "hagakure". there are some words i want to know how they are written in original language. in modern or (better) old japanese...
the words are:
"The word gen means "illusion" or "apparition." In India, a man who uses conjury is called a genjutsushi ["a master of illusion technique"]. Everything in this world is but a marionette show. Thus we use the word gen. "
genjutsushi (gehn-jew-tsoo-she) “a master of illusion technique
The word used is shinigurai, meaning, "being grazy to die." The sense is of leaping into the jaws of death with no hesitation.
thanks for the help
