"Zen" means meditation in Japanese.

"Buddha" means "Awakened one" or "Enlightened One" in Sanskrit

and Pali.

Buddhism is the way to awakening or enlightenment.

Zen Buddhism is a way to awakening or enlightenment that is

centered in the practice of meditation.

Here, if you are new to Zen, your mind is already asking What is

awakening or enlightenment? It will not be until you

have traveled the path of Zen practice that you will begin to

realize why this question is about an experience that is beyond all

answering. Even the label "experience" does more to hide than

reveal.
