"What is Zen ?" "Doing Zazen is everything of Zen."
"What is Zazen ?" " Zazen ?"
"Where can you practice zen ? " "At your home. But you can learn how to practice Zen in or around Zen temples and halls all over the world. In my case. I go to a Zen hall, "Bodaizendo", located in Kasumigaura City,Ibaraki prefecture, in Japan, near Kasumigaura lake, the second largest lake in Japan. "
"Can you find any object influenced by Zen in Japanese daily life ? " "Yes. You will often find a red papier-mache doll, a " Daruma" in homes and shops. "

" Have you seen a "
Jizo" on the road ? "
"What is man's relationship to nature ? (Question by high-school student, USA) " "You cannot divide "man and nature. "
