In Zen Buddhism enlightenment is attained through:?

A) Rational examination
B) Living an ascetic life
C) Meditation
D) All of the above


  1. None of the above. Because if you think enlightenment comes as a result through anything, you don’t understand Zen yet.
    (hat tip to the “hit on the head by an old man with a stick” answer…that person “gets it”).

  2. for school answer is C. sadly schools are not too often to study questions before giving answers.
    if you really need answer for this, it’s not here, nor in the school.
    good luck.

  3. Zen Buddhism enlightenment was attained through following the Zen Buddhism founder, but only for six generations of students. Zen at the current form has nothing to teach; and the Zen Buddhists are on his own.
    In the section “Different Levels Have Different Laws” of the Zhuan Falun Lecture on the web, you can find out a discussion about Zen Buddhism.
    Falun Gong is a unique Buddhist School, found in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi in China. About 100 million people practice in over 80 countries worldwide. Falun Gong is an ancient practice for the body, mind, and spirit based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises. Meditation demonstration video and book are free to download.
    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China. Can you kindly sign a petition to stop persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, please ?
