Warriorship here does not refer to making war on others. ..Here the word "warrior" is taken from the Tibetian "pawo", which literally means "one who is brave". Warriorship in this context is the tradition of human bravery, or the tradition of fearlessness. The North American Indians had such a tradition, and is also existed in South American Indian societies. The Japanese ideal of the samurai warrior also represented a warrior tradition of wisdom, and there have been principles of enlightened warriorship in Western Christian counties as well. King Arthur is a legendary example of warriorship in the Western tradition, and great rulers in the bible, such as King David, are exmples of warriors common to both the Jewish and Christian tradition.
