Zen is a philosophy originated in China during the Later Tang Dynasty, called the Chan School, and then developed into many other sub-schools and branches. Most people think that Zen means " emptiness," but this is not the full meaning. Zen really does mean to "know," "believe," or "rouse." This is because Zen focuses on the interconnectedness of all things, including ourselves.
While some mistakenly translate Zen as "tea bud" or "japa mantra," it's important to remember that it's actually a Japanese prayer technique. Zen meditation is similar to chanting sutras, which is traditional for many religions. However, most Zen practitioners prefer to perform meditation without any music, spoken words, or visualization. Practitioners meditate seated, facing a table, or in any suitable spot such as a window. Zen meditation involves focusing one's attention to a single point while being aware of one's entire body, thoughts, and environment.
