If there’s one person in the Narutoverse who was selfless, then it’s Itachi Uchiha. He didn’t expect anything of anybody and did what was asked for him. On the contrary, everyone was self absorbed with their own dreams including Naruto. There are lots of things we can learn from such a great shinobi. To add to it, I often get this question from fans on asking “How to be like Itachi Uchiha” , hence I’m answering this question-
SYMBOLISM IN ITACHI’S SUMMONING
Have you ever heard of the story of the rainbow crow?
Itachi’s summoning jutsu was inspired from this story. The story is about a beautiful crow with rainbow feathers and a beautiful voice. Ironic?
During winter, the rainbow crow’s friends were cold and wanted something that can keep them warm. One of them mentioned how “Fire” might help them without knowing the consequences.
So, to help his friends, the rainbow crow flew to the heaven to find god. When he met god, he asked him for fire. God gave him a fire torch coupled with a beautiful smile. On the way back, the fire destroyed his beautiful wings and the smoke from the fire got into his throat, thus messing up his beautiful voice. Thus, they were not special anymore. When he returned he only thought of making his friends warm and never thought of how he wasn’t beautiful anymore.
So, coming back to the question, you should be selfless and care about others dear to you.
This is the no.1 lesson from Itachi’s life…
The rest are-
- Don’t judge others based on your own preconceptions and looks
- Don’t be dependent on anyone and be self sufficient.
- Always be aware of your surroundings and people.
- Always have a trump card which you utilize in the most dire moments of your life.
- Don’t blame other for your problems and accept responsibility.
