Zen Is What?

Zen is something.

Buddha Zhen (“Jen”) will explain,

Zen is actually a Japanese word for the Chinese word, Chan. So Chan Buddhism is the original Zen Buddhism. Chan Buddhism was created by Bodhidharma at the Shaolin Temple in Northern China 1,400 years ago.  So what Zen is, is what no one knows… except me and some other Shaolin monks.  But this is the beauty of Zen: that Zen has yet to reach America.  We got a Japanese byproduct of Zen, but never Zen.  Until now.
