Common Sense, How to Exercise It by Yoritomo Tashi (1147 - 1199). Translated by Lily Berthelot De La Boileverie ( - 0)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/common-sense-how-to-exercise-it-by-yoritomo-tashi/
One of three seminal philosophical works by the twelfth century Japanese Shogun, Yoritomo-Tashi.
(From the Preface) He knows how to clothe his teachings in fable and appealing legend, and his exotic soul, so near and yet so far, reminds one of a flower, whose familiar aspect is transmuted into rare perfume.
By him the sternest questions are stripped of their hostile aspects and present themselves in the alluring form of the simplest allegories of striking poetic intensity.
When reading his works, one recalls unconsciously the orations of the ancient philosophers, delivered in those dazzling gardens, luxuriant in sunlight and fragrant with flowers.
In this far-away past, one sees also the silhouette of a majestic figure, whose school of philosophy became a religion, which interested the world because it spoke both of love and goodness.
But in spite of this fact, the doctrines of Yoritomo are of an imaginative type. His kingdom belongs to this world, and his theories seek less the joys of the hereafter than of that tangible happiness which is found in the realization of the manly virtues and in that effort to create perfect harmony from which flows perfect peace.
He takes us by the hand, in order to lead us to the center of that Eden of Knowledge where we have already discovered the art of persuasion, and that art, most difficult of all to acquire—the mastery of timidity.
Following him, we shall penetrate once more this Eden, that we may study with Yoritomo the manner of acquiring this art—somewhat unattractive perhaps but essentially primordial—called Common Sense. ( B. DANGENNES.)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thank you Anne.
I think I will go with the shortened filename.

As for DPL, I would not be at all surprised if Helen finds this soon...or should I invite her?

I'm for giving people the option - you never know. She may be full up and you get someone else and you may learn something new, meet a new person or help someone get started - all grreat outcomes

Anne,

:idea: In order to avoid confusion between the "Lesson" numbers and the Section numbers, I have decided to put the "Announcement" and "Preface" together into Section 0. They are both rather short - total duration of the finished audio should be less than 8 minutes. This means that Section 13 is no longer needed. Since I can't delete it, would you do so please?

Oops! How'dat happen? Blame it on Mercury Retrograde :shock:

OK, now how do I fix this? I mean, I can fix it, but how do I upload the fixed file? If I use the same filename, the uploader will change it. Sorry, but this is the first time I've uploaded a messed up file. I don't know the procedure.

OK, I think I did this right. Section 0 re-uploaded and ready for spot PL. I believe that the URL is the same and the old (messed up) file got renamed, but, just in case, here it is again.
