The samurai where weak the moment they invoked Budha, invoked anything, in the grappling with the immediate.

This is a valid criticism only because the Samurai were the strongest ever in the face of the immediate, the bravest.

I dont see that they much did, though. You are right about their immediacy - Buddha was Indian and he only managed to arrive in Japan as "chan" or "zen" and then only through the zen of action.

The only way I can see any delay or sublimation or dissolution of the immediate is into massive dream visions like Anime, but these do not represent a loss of grappling-focus. I think. But then I am far from an expert of Anime.
