The Non Doing
“Europeans can only act if they understand the reason why beforehand. Hence the need for a development in the realm of thought. This work may prove interesting because, if Europeans understand, other people will follow.
There is a world of difference between having a map with the water sources marked on it and actually quenching one's thirst there.”

Itsuo Tsuda wrote nine books in French, Yume Editions present here a new english translation of the first book.
This book, The Non-doing reach an outstanding success when it was first published in the 1970s in french. The text presented here was done in collaboration with the School Itsuo Tsuda and Regis Soavi, a direct student of the author. This edition includes pictures taken by the author and photographer Eva Rodgold.
Through the philosophy he has developed, Itsuo Tsuda (1914-1984) contributes to the evolution of mankind. Establishing a bridge between East and West, he presents knowledge he received from Masters such as Haruchika Noguchi, Morihei Ueshiba, Marcel Mauss, Marcel Granet and others. There is a challenge in this, for the human being is viewed in a dimension that transcends any given period, place or tradition. The human being as such, unveiled. Life in its manifold aspects. The human being as such, unveiled. Life in its manifold aspects.
The author writes in a direct and simple style; his choice of words, precise and never left to chance, and so it has great significance and the reader is captured by the rhythm of a respiration. The message, almost thirty years after his death, remains up-to-date and relevant. Itsuo Tsuda deals with the theme of the philosophy of the Non-Doing and with that of ki through Katsugen undo, Seitai and Aikido: all of which are means of awakening sensitivity and retrieving inner freedom. Human beings already possess everything they need within, but because of the present conditions of the world, they must find themselves again and rediscover their fundamental freedom.
