What is Zen?
Zen is very simple...
What are you?
In this whole world
everyone searches for happiness outside, but nobody understands their true self
inside. Everybody says, "I" –
"I want this, I am like
that..." But nobody understands this "I" Before you were born, where did your I
come from? When you die, where will your I go? If you sincerely ask, "What am
I?" sooner or later you will run into a wall where all thinking is cut off. We
call this "Don't know."
Zen is keeping this
"Don't know" mind always and everywhere.
