The purpose of Zazen Meditation is to free your mind of the materialistic hold our lives have on us and once you are able to allow your thoughts to enter and quietly leave without investigation you will no longer be limited. This will provide you the quiet calm needed to see the truth of your nature and your place within yourself and the world. Your body, mind, and breath will become one.
I went to a simple zen mediation center and I’m curious about its surroundings. I understand that simplicity in setting is a often a good thing for beginners, but is there a certain role for the following things?: plants (were very eastern in nature) pictures candles and inscense?

I know there are many methods of meditation in the midst of circumstances. I am interested in the theory that zen archery is as an effective method of awakening as zazen. AH – That’s fine, please feel free, your answer is as important as anyone elses and I find your questions valid. (Powered by Yahoo Answers)
