In this short and clear introduction to what Zen is, we can understand its context and how it can help us live in the present.
“Zen is not access to some other reality but to realize the true nature of this reality right here and now undistorted by our projections and concepts about it”.
(…) Zen in its essence is the art of seeing into the nature of one’s own being.“
”(..) perhaps the greatest Japanese Zen master summarized the Zen path in a very short and simple way:
to study Buddhism is to study yourself
to study yourself is to forget yourself
to forget yourself is to realize your intimacy with all things".
