Buddhism is a spiritual practice that has branched out into a diversity of other practices that have enriched it and allowed it to expand into Western geographies. In this way, it has also been applied in different fields. For this reason, we would like to offer you our selection of Zen books so that you can adopt its principles in your daily experience.
Zen can be defined as a Buddhist school whose practice is based on the search for enlightenment as the ideal state of being. This can be achieved primarily through meditation, and although Buddhism proposes levels that must be fulfilled to reach the final step, Zen believes that nirvana (higher state of consciousness) can be reached directly.
The origin of Zen is located in India, with the awakening of the consciousness of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha. However, it has also developed in China and Japan. This philosophy tries not to be pigeonholed in trivial concepts, nor in the structures of common thought.
Meditation techniques, such as the lotus flower and the Zen garden, have been used to achieve emotional, physical and mental well-being. Among the benefits of this practice are:
- A noticeable improvement in mood.
- Mental cleansing of negative thoughts.
- Improved concentration.
- Connection to serenity and disconnection from stress.
- Enjoyment of the present moment.
