How to Do Zazen (zen meditation)
Practicing zen meditation is a big part of Zen Buddhism. The Japanese word for Zen meditation is "zazen". "Za" means "sit" and "zen" means "meditation". So if you're interested in learning about Zen Buddhism, a good place to start is to try doing zazen. On this page you can download a PDF file with instructions on doing zazen. There's also two videos on there of my Buddhist teacher, Gudo Nishijima, demonstrating how to do zazen and talking about the meaning zazen. There's also answers to four questions I was asked about doing zazen.
