If Zen ever finds a foothold in Africa, the truths the book reveals could be seen as monumental.

      The scholarly answer to that question is that Zen is a school of Mahayana Buddhism that emerged in China about 15 centuries ago. In China, it is called Ch'an 'an is the Chinese rendering of the Sanskrit word dhyana, which refers to a mind absorbed in meditation."Zen" is the Japanese rendering of Ch'an. Zen is called Thien in Vietnam and Seon in Korea. An engaging introduction to Zen Buddhism, featuring a new English translation of one of the earliest Zen texts Leading Buddhist scholar Sam van Schaik explores the history and essence of Zen, based on a new translation of one of the earliest surviving collections of teachings by Zen masters.

    The Asus ZenBook 14 uxF is currently available at Bright Technologies, located along Kimathi Street at Ksh, A smart-looking. This book is a worthy addition to the Zen library, a book with a somewhat unusual take on Zen, namely from a modern, scientifically literate perspective. I do have some quibbles, apart from those mentioned above, there are a large number of typos, at least in the digital copy I read. But overall, an illuminating and interesting read.

Zen is one form of spiritual path which has no scriptures, books, rules, or particular practices – nothing. It is an uncharted path. It is not very different from what yoga is. What we call yoga, they call Zen.
