to learn to sit zazen, please take some time to explore

zazen, the practice of the Buddha
Way, is none other than the practice
of one's life.
Bodhidharma, who is credited with
bringing Buddhist meditation to China
from India, described Zen:
outside the scriptures;
Not depending on words and letters;
Pointing directly to mind;
Seeing one's nature, being Buddha.
