Ed, Zen is definable. All terms (names) are definable. Whether any particular definition accurately communicates what's intended and is useful is another question entirely.
Merriam-Webster Online defines zen as ": a Japanese sect of Mahayana Buddhism that aims at enlightenment by direct intuition through meditation". That is a good definition of Zen Buddhism, but it is not the way I would define the zen I practice. .Bill!
