Translation:

The spirit of the Ninja.  Body, mind, conscience as one enduring all.  This is the principle of the forbearing spirit.  First bear all humiliation, denounce ill will and resentment, raising the spirit to acquire the virtue of patience.
Take not the meaning of (nin) to be the blade before the heart, but learning that the heart of the flower is one of peace and harmony, and like the love and affection of the flower, there is happiness in peace.
Consequently, one's body will naturally evade the sword, disappearing; the miracle of truth and falsehood in divisionary tactics.  For one's country, for justice using the elements of nature, earth, water, fire, wind, and air, to subdue ones opponent.

This being is the essence of the Ninja.
