Zen - Reality and Practice
Zen is not a destination, but rather a state of mind, an attitude,
a way of approaching and experiencing everyday life.
Although many people recognize the philosophical and aesthetic
aspects of Zen teaching,
few have been taught the simple art of zazen,
the formal seated meditation practiced by Zen students and masters alike.
Becoming more and more silent, more and more aware
through regular practice of zazen
is the real secret of Zen.
