SO, WHAT IS ZEN
The concept is very simple. Bodhirama, the father of Zen defines it as:
A special transmission outside the scriptures;
No dependence on words and letters;
Direct pointing to the mind of man;
Seeing into one's nature and attaining Buddhahood.
All beings by nature are Buddhas,
as ice by nature is water.
Apart from water there is no ice;
apart from beings, no Buddhas.
As a discipline, Zen is extremely hard to practice. It is a difficult path, and it is not for everyone. (Because Zen is about coming face-to-face with yourself, in a very direct and intimate way.) And, if you have tried, you know how terrifying it is to face your internal demons.
The meditation practice of Zen, called "zazen" in Japanese, is the heart of Zen. Daily zazen is the foundation of Zen practice. The first thing about walking on this path is to give up logical thinking and avoid getting trapped in a world of words. Very contrary to our way of life.
Wherever, Zen has taken roots, it has never been a popular sect of Buddhism as a spiritual practice.
Nonetheless, the concept of Zen has taken hold of our mass sub-conscoiusness and it has become fahionable to be Zen like., (whatever that may be). Zen has it's strong impact on art, architecture and interior design. It influenced a generation of New York artists and intellectuals from Erich Fromm to John Cage, and somehow the word ‘Zen’ have come to invoke a mysterious spiritualised 'something'. Without much thought, we often say, "It is very Zen", usually, when we experience a moment of quiet solitude.
Actiually, there is no scarcity of the word Zen in our urban lexicon. Interestingly enough, Amazon.com lists titles about "Zen and the art of archery, flower arranging, motorcycle maintenance, writing, knitting, falling in love, football, stand-up comedy, living with fearlessness and grace, the internet, murder, chilling, post-modern philosophy, the monologue, and the list goes on and on". Anything, you can think about, you can do it with Zen.
