Hi Bill,

Bored? How is Thailand?  I will be flying to Taiwan and China and Hong Kong in 
three weeks.......

Toward the end of Buddha's life, he transmitted heart to heart the life force 
and wisdom without words or formalities to Kasyapa.  BodhiDharma brought that 
to China and slowly evolved with other Chinese culture into Chan, a Chinese 
name.  700 years later Chan was brought to Japan.  The Japanese pronounced the 
same Chinese character - Zen.

Chan I know very well.  Chan in my opinion is the essence of Buddha's teaching. 
 There is no difference.  Any difference is in our mind.

Now you can slaughter me.....

the differences between 'zen' and 'buddhism'?
