Thank you for mentioning Alen Watts. I stumbled upon his lectures on youtube and he is the one who got me interested in Zen/Buddhism.

Hi. I'm Dhyananda. Dhyana is Sanskrit for Zen (meditation). Ananda is bliss. My teacher gave me the name over 30 years ago. Thank you for spreading the message of meditation!

I was just checking this out and wanted to share - in Australia an enlightened Spiritual master named Sri Avinash is transmitting the enlightened state and it's called the Satori Transmission. You can see in video people are experiencing a what enlightenment feels like because of him within minutes. 💜 I didn't believe it until I saw it. See for yourself! #sriavinashsatoritransmission 💙💖

This is the Hollywood version of Zen. But you got close on a few points. Zen is really simple... Zen means "meditation" and that is simply this, (1) *Relax* all tension in mind and body. ( 2) *Allow* all thoughts and feelings to come and go. (3) *Observe* or "watch" your mind. All of this comes down to just being truth, as it is. No need to add colorful elaboration. 😏🙏

Zen practitioners typically don't emphasize mantras dude. Also Zen is not a belief system. Thank you for posting anyway!

no "om" mantra in zazen 🙊(also no visualization) just watch wallpaint dry (while the mind sees the mind) and (maybe) the heart sutra end ... dropping off mind and body (soto-style) OR go the koans route (rinzai-style)

Zen is not a belief system. There are no concepts in zen, nor is there the absence of concepts.

The God of heaven and earth is Elder Park Tae Sun. Do you know God's name? In the West, in the fear of the name of God, in the east, of the glory of God. Here is the name of God. It means that God came out of man. Is there anyone in the world who announced that I am God? In 1980, Elder Park Tae Sun declared, "I am God!" I will reveal to the world that Korea is the East, the place to fear the glory of God. In Israel, the East is the Republic of Korea. In Japan, keep the islands quiet in the Bible! It means not you. There will also be a nation that will never perish. A country that is not destroyed here forever is a country where the sun will lose its light and will emerge afterward! It is the country of Park Tae Sun. Do you know that the candlestick of Israel came to the East as the East? You will see that in the Republic of Korea there is a new, never-destroying country. God's Word of Man's Creation, the Word of the Alien, the Word of the End Times, and the Word of the eternal world are recorded on the following website. http://www.paikmagongja.org/index.html https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO_rEMr4UmnefwdY95cVJPg

Enjoying the moment isn't what Zen is about. That kind of thinking is probably what led to Watts becoming an alcoholic and a womanizer.
Thought Monkey (1 год назад)
Hmm. Maybe accepting the moment (whether it's in pain or pleasure) is a better way to put it?

if zen doesn't focus on the accumulation of knowledge then isn't this video a little ironic?

This is a summary of Alan Watts's summary on Zen. No references to Koans, the lineage and Boddhidharma? Also, rinzai and soto? Hmmm.... the reason there is a specific term zazen is because it is a specific type of meditation involving generally no mantra and eyes open facing the wall. Being in the present moment is nice, but what about transcending duality? What about the non-abiding awareness? Very inaccurate unfortunately!
StratosFear1992 (7 дней назад)
It’s only a summary of Zen Buddhism, a brief introduction, which by definition means focusing on only the main points and leaving out some of the details. We shouldn’t be so quick to judge a well intentioned video simply because we consider our own knowledge to be more in-depth.
Petter Kr. Wiik (8 месяцев назад)
I partly agree with you. Even though this video was slightly inaccurate, it offers a greater introduction for regular western people who are dependent on words for understanding. "Zen is not words", as many have said, which makes it difficult for me to explain to my friends. But this video put it simpler for me in that way than I ever could have done myself

Zen Buddhism is came from south India, during Sangam age and medieval and there massive trade between south India and China, Korea and Japan, south India bought culture impact in East Asia eg : Dravidian Korean language, martial arts, Buddhism and Indian school of philosophy.. there is biased research done by western historian so they never came in lime light but still well documented in some ancient tamil texts..... if anybody think there are fake just do research on yourself link between Dravidian and asia culture... even Cambodian Angkor wat temple is belong to Dravidian architecture (south Indian architecture)...
Jacky Phantom (2 месяца назад)
Zen buddhism was born in East Asia (particularly China) by fusing Buddhism and the East Asian culture. Maybe the founder Is a Indian, but that doesn't mean it belongs to India. Zen buddhism is part of the Mahayana school along with chan Buddhism, Korean and Vietnamese Buddhism and pure land Buddhism, the concept is different from the original Buddhism from India. East Asian culture are often associated with Mahayana Buddhism. Today there hardly any Indian buddhist, plus Indian buddhist don't practice Mahayana school anyway.
G R A (2 года назад)
As soon as one says that Zen is this or that one has missed the point. And there is no OM in zazen.
Visemar Raellaeris (1 год назад)
In my point of view, it would be wrong to call Buddhism a religion. Religion focuses on strict dogmas and pleasing a god who cannot be seen, Buddhism is about inward focus. You don't pray to a god to better you, you better yourself by focusing on yourself. You also recognize that people around you deserve to be treated with respect and kindness, even if their religion or beliefs are different from yours. As long as they do not seek to harm others, you can respect their beliefs and not condemn them. You don't think, "Well, that person is going to hell for not believing what I believe." You think, "That person is choosing their own path, and as long as it is not a path that is harmful to others, I can respect it." That's why I love Buddhism and see it as not a religion, but a spiritual philosophy.

Sorry for repeating myself. This vid gives one a very good, but superficial expiation of Zen.Trying to explain Zen is like trying to explain, or describe the taste of a peach to someone who never tasted one. To find out what it tastes like you have to take a bite.

A couple of books you may want to try are Three Pillars of Zen, and Zen Dawn In The West. Both are Written by Philip Kapleau. These books are easy to read, and will give you as much information as you need without making your head hurt.

What? Buddhism only exists between the ears of 'believers' in ' Buddhism. Some of the others among us know that what you call 'Buddhahood' is only the workings of the genius, and more, intelligence we each received at the moment of our respective creations. Once an individual spends enough time exploring their innate intelligence, this point becomes exceedingly clear. Buddhahood is a zenful, mokshaful, jhanaful, delightful place to be. Would that all you Buddhism practitioners could spend as much time there as I do.
AllHaiLKINGTIsHeRe3 (2 года назад)
I'm sorry, but I just can't listen to this narrator pronounce the word "a" like he's reading to a bunch of pre-schoolers. You're using "a" as a word, not a letter. It's pronounced "uh." Stop being so stiff and just speak like a normal person, not a robot. I guess it's pretty obvious that I have no experience with Zen, or else his pronunciation wouldn't bother me, but then again it also shows that the narrator has no experience with Zen, or else he would have been mindful of his ridiculous pronunciation and would have stopped doing it.
AllHaiLKINGTIsHeRe3 (2 года назад)
+Thought Monkey Well thanks for taking it that way. I hope you realize the harsh tone of the comment was mostly intended to be humorous. For some reason that pronunciation is noticeable to me when people speak, but almost everyone does it (including Presidential candidates) so I could never seriously get upset over it.
Thought Monkey (2 года назад)
This is a really interesting point you bring up. I never thought about saying the word "a" before and guess when I read the scripts that I write I tend to pronounce it differently then when in more informal situations.

Words do not explain that which is zen. That’s the joke. Zen is but a alternative illusion.
mindlesstube (9 месяцев назад)
Zen comes from the word dhyāna which we do not have a proper English word for. As meditation would still be considered a improper translation based on how we define meditation as sitting quietly and thinking about something which is not what zen is.
Starcraftian (2 года назад)
Was going to mention that as well - "Za"zen is "Sitting" Meditation peeps :)

It's no belief system, because believing is clinging to a concept, zen ain't concerned with ideas and concepts

Quq Balam Did the west take out alot of the religious aspects because ive been reading the Vimilakarti Sutra,heart sutra,lotus sutra and others and it's sounds like in China and other countries the believe the Buddhas and Bodhisattva's are Celestial beings that they pray to, like Kuan Yin for example.When I speak to Zen and Chan Buddhists here in the USA alot of them don't even read the Sutras

Eek you have lots of errors from the cut out of a not zen monk (he looks Thai) to it actually starting in India not China. Not about Judging, not judging, lots of other misses... You might want to ask a Zen Priest for better explanation or Buddhist Scholar. So many mistakes in 3 minutes I am afraid :(
Jacky Phantom (2 месяца назад)
Zen buddhism was created in China, but the founder Is a Indian. The concept of zen Buddhism is very different from the original Buddhism from India. And btw zen Buddhism is part of the Mahayana school, this school of Buddhism is mainly practiced in East Asia and East Asian culture are often associated with Buddhism (Mahayana). Zen buddhism along with pure land Buddhism are often practiced in East Asia. U seems to be pretty ignorance about East Asian. Plus there hardly any Indian who are Buddhism, the Buddhist Indian don't practice Mahayana (zen) anyway.

Jamie R bodhidharma brought Buddhism from India. He possibly then merged Taoism into it to form zen. There wasn’t any Taoist influence in India at the time (at least not the south where he was from).

I like the video! But your repetition of Om might be confusing for some, as generally zazen doesn't use a mantra.

One may think that's funny, but it may be misleading.
