You've heard of Zen. You may even have had moments of Zen—instances of insight and a feeling of connectedness and understanding that seem to come out of nowhere. The scholarly answer to that question is that Zen is a school of Mahayana Buddhism that emerged in China about 15 centuries ago. In China, it is called Ch'an Buddhism. Ch'an is the Chinese rendering of the Sanskrit word dhyana , which refers to a mind absorbed in meditation.

This is a guest post by Shane as part of the article swap, part 3 within the Buddhist blogoshphere. I am posting over at Peace Ground Zero today. When I started writing on this post, I was approaching it with a discursive and relative based mind. I wanted to look at how Zen had made me approach dating differently…hopefully better. I wanted to explore how non-attachment and equanimity could be balanced with passion and romance.
History of meditation
Contrary to what people beli eve , Buddhism is not a religion. It is a lifestyle and a practi cal experience. Zen Buddhism challenges all aspects of your everyday life. Preconceived notions have molded our lifestyle, making us believe that we have to be more productive and busy all the time, whereas Zen teaches us to slow down in order to achieve true peace and happiness.
For those who cannot sit in full-lotus, Zen Buddhists endorse several alternatives, including meditating seated in a chair. Dogen, the 13th-century founder of the Soto school of Japanese Zen, believed that a person practicing zazen is, in that moment, the Buddha himself, because the very act of sitting manifests the enlightenment mind that is who we really are. Others believe that Zen has a distinct goal—awakening—and that direct effort is the only way to attain it.
