Thanks for The website you pasted. However, I haven't managed to
open any of the pages except from front page of the link.
Why you didn't go back to the temple of Thich Than Tu again?. What
are you following now?. Do you have a Teacher, Sangha or just follow
your own way?.
Hi Mike again,
Yes San Sebastian is a very pretty elegant city. Sorry you couldn't
translate the page. Just to let you know, I have a google bar for
translation in the internet. You can download it if you wish.
Though, it can only be used in web pages but not for posting in
A short time ago, the forum considered dropping members that did not post
messages, thankfully that moment passed. Now, we have this entity that
clearly is delusional and IT is allowed to drag the dialog into the abyss.

I am new to the group and wanted to introduce myself. my name is Jason and I am
fairly new to zen. I joined to learn more about zen and buddhism, as I have a
VERY basic understanding of both. I have been spiritual for many years and have
meditated, although I wish to do it more
Hi Edgar and All
I've been reading your posts with much interest, (and am a newbie to the Zen
thing). Edgar, in response to your post below, I wanted to ask what you
believe the difference is between an automatic act coming 'directly from the
Tao at the centre of ones nature' and a
Thank you for posting. Your words reflect clearly the state of your

I have not been following this thread very closely. Did anyone post
the list of black Zen Masters? Are there any Hispanic Zen Masters??

Welcome. You've come to the right place. We just had a thread recently
where many described their satori experiences.
Everyone has their own perspective. This group encompasses the
spectrum. You'll see a few differing beliefs of what zen is to each of
us. Some follow a zen buddhist
The question you've asked touches a theme that surfaces from time to time on
this forum. That is whether zen is a sub-set of Buddhism (as in Zen Buddhism),
or whether zen is something that can be found outside of Buddhism as well. I
believe the latter, but you must know that many on
Welcome to the Zen Forum!
My suggestion to you is to learn to sit zen meditation (Japanese word =
'zazen'). If you can find a zen group near you with a legitimate teacher,
that would be the best route. If not you can find out how to sit zazen from
many sources. I've listed some on a
Welcome to Zen Forum!
Books about zen are not high on my list, although I have read a lot of them
over the years. D.T. Suzuki presents a very scholarly view of Buddhism, not so
much Zen Buddhism, but his books are considered classics in the field.
I always recommend sitting with groups
Mac. A. Roni,
If you wouldn't spend so much time being a side dish you'd know that no one

As far as I know, there is a difference between traditional buddhism
