Q. Lewis,  what are some basic ideas concerning Zen?

A. Zen is a simple yet profound philosophy of life. It is a way to be spiritual without necessarily being involved with formal religion. Zen is a perspective on life, that originated in Chinese Buddhism. This philosophy later developed into various schools, one, the Chan School was strongly influenced by Taoism.


Zen emphasizes rigorous self-restraint, meditation, and insight into the nature of the mind, and through these practices being able to “perceive the true nature of things”.




As such, it de-emphasizes knowledge alone of rites, rituals, ceremonies, doctrines, and the like.

Zen favors direct understanding through spiritual practice and interaction with an accomplished teacher or guide.

Many people only know of Zen because it is the name of their local nail salon, bubble tea café, or their favorite dance club. For others, Zen is the doorway to a truly spiritual life.


No matter how intuitive you may be, how deep your understanding of spirituality, or how advanced your mental clarity, the fact remains that in your spiritual practice you will need to explore how the appropriate application of your individual talents, and resources, can help you create a life of joy, contentment, happiness, and wisdom.


Many of the basic ideas of Zen present us with a true “Wisdom Path.” They each approach spirituality through metaphor and poetic thought while guiding one to surrender rigid ideas of what “Is.”  Zen practice gives us the means to live life fully, with little or no unnecessary struggle.  Doing this doesn’t require a label.

I’m always amused by the manner by which people who are involved in some religious practice often just make things up, just to be dogmatic. Things that have no relationship whatsoever to the teachings that they claim to represent or to be studying. I’m not being critical of anyone’s beliefs here when I say this. It’s just an observation.

Tips for learning to live and be in the moment


Though definitions and techniques of mindfulness are wide-ranging, in Transmodern Zen, we explain mindfulness as to how past, present and future moments arise and cease as momentary sense impressions and mental phenomena.
