Zen Buddhism is one school of Buddhism that arose from the Mahayana school of Buddhism. There are three main schools of Buddhism today, with several smaller schools that have adapted the principles and pathways of the major three.
Zen is the Japanese form of Ch'an Buddhism, which began in China and eventually spread to the island of Japan. As a form of Buddhism, you are asked to use seated meditation to reach enlightenment, as well as to follow six paramitas or principles to achieve an awakened state.
This is a book for beginners that explores various topics to help you decide if it is the right school of Buddhism for you to follow and gain enlightenment from.
In this book you will find:
The history of Buddhism
An understanding of Buddhism
How to practice Zen Buddhism
How to find a mentor
How to apply Zen to your daily life
A glossary of important terms
You are not promised to reach an awakening or Nirvana, but to understand more about the concept and the meditation it took the original Buddha to gain Buddhahood. Your path may be quick or slow to gaining Nirvana, but it is your journey - not one that anyone can provide for you - although, it is one masters can help you discover.
