Finding Inner Calm and Deeper Wisdom

Go Deep to Learn Who You Really Are.

What Is Zen?

Would you like a clear and simple answer to the question What Is Zen? There’s at least a shelf load of books that purport to answer that question. But, If you want a simple one-sentence definition of Zen to use when people ask you about it, try this:

Zen is how to discover your inner nature and receive Enlightenment.

Your inner nature has meaning far beyond the obvious. Your inner nature might is also called the human spirit. That discovery is the most important idea, concept, and indeed, the whole underlying foundation of Zen. It is a practice of training your mind chiefly by sitting quietly without thought.

EdIncaTempleZen has worked for so many people for thousands of years because it quiets the relatively shallow thinking mind so that knowledge from the deeper, normally inaccessible areas of the whole mind can surface and be recognized. This is also known as the Zen state. Connecting the conscious, thinking mind with deep-mind knowledge results in a higher form of wisdom and profound spiritual awareness otherwise unavailable to the ordinary human mind.

Here’s a good way to get started: Learn about Zen, and learn how to meditate. Those are the first steps to becoming a Zen practitioner. If you are persistent and dedicated in your practice, you might receive one or more enlightening experiences and become a Master.  Along the Zen path you will experience life at a higher level of joy and satisfaction. If you’re serious about learning real, authentic Zen, get hold of the book Original Zen on amazon, available as an ebook or paperback. So quit procrastinating! Get started right now.
