"Yagyu Tajima no Kami Munenori was a teacher of swordsmanship to the shogun. One of the personal guards of the shogun came to Tajima no Kami one day asking to be trained in swordplay. “As I observe, you seem to be a master of the art yourself,” said the teacher. “Please tell me to what school you belong before we enter into the relationship of teacher and pupil.” The guardsman said, “I do not belong to any school, I have never studied the art.”. “It is no use trying to fool me,” said the master. “My judging eye never fails.” “I am sorry to defy, your honor,” said the guard, “but I really know nothing.” “If you say so then it must be true, but I am sure that you are the master of something, so tell me about yourself.” “There is one thing,” said the guard. “When I was a child I thought that a samurai should never be afraid of death. So I grappled with the problem, and now the thought of death has ceased to worry me.” “That’s it!” exclaimed the teacher. “The ultimate secrets of swordsmanship lie in being released from the thought of death. You need no technical training, you are already a master.”

Yagyu Tajima-no-kami era un gran maestro de la espada y enseñaba el arte al shogun Tokugawa Jyemitsu. Cierto día, uno de los guardianes del shogun se acercó a Tajima-no-kami y pidió que le enseñara. El maestro dijo: "Según veo, ya sois maestro de la espada. Decidme, os ruego, a qué escuela pertenecéis, antes que entremos en una relación de maestro y discípulo". El guardián contestó: "Me avergüenza confesar que jamás aprendí el arte". "¿Os burláis de mí? Soy el maestro del venerable shogun y sé que mi ojo no me engaña". "Lamento ofender vuestro honor, pero la verdad es que no tengo ningún conocimiento del arte". Frente a esta decidida negativa, el maestro vaciló un momento; al final dijo: "Si vos lo afirmáis, así será. Pero seguramente sois maestro de alguna otra disciplina, aunque no veo bien cuál es". "Como insistís en ello, os diré. Hay una sola cosa de la cual puedo considerarme maestro consumado. Cuando aún era muchacho, se me ocurrió que, siendo Samurai, no debía temer a la muerte en ningún caso y desde entonces -ya hace algunos años- he luchado continuamente con la cuestión de la muerte, hasta que he dejado de preocuparme. ¿Tal vez será esto lo que vuestra merced señala?" "Exactamente -exclamó Tajima-no-kami- esto es. Me alegro de que mi juicio haya sido acertado, pues el último secreto del arte de la espada reside también en estar liberado de la idea de la muerte. A centenares de alumnos les he mostrado esa meta, pero hasta hoy ninguna ha alcanzado el grado supremo en el arte de la espada. Vos no necesitáis ningún ejercicio, ya sois maestro". Desde tiempos remotos, la sala donde se practica el arte de la espada se denomina: Lugar de la Iluminación."
