I normally don't read links that are posted without comment.  See Kristy's 
comment below that basically expresses the same thing.

I did go to this link and read the article.  I thought it was pretty good.  
Anthony and ED were right in that I'd flag the declaration that zen is a 
subdivision of Buddhism.  To me that's like declaring prayer is a subdivision 
of Christianity.  But in the case of this article I could find very little else 
with which I disagreed.

I could agree with it all if they'd change the subject to Zen Buddhism instead 
of just 'Zen', but in the article they mention that 'Zen' is a short term for 
'Zen Buddhism'.

...Bill!

ED/Kristy,
 
On behalf of Bill, I solemnly declare the subtitle that zen is a subdivision of 
Buddhism is wrong. It creates illusions that are associated with Buddhism.

Kristy, be not puzzled!
My expectation is that Bill will flag the thoughts in the article that are 
incorrect or infelicitously stated.    e
