The Zen school is one of the forms through which Buddhism was spread in Japan.
The practice of Zen -
which literally means meditation - is characterized by simplicity, sobriety and essentiality. Thus,
it is directed immediately toward the objective.
Actually, according to Zen nothing else is needed beyond
sitting on the floor with crossed legs, and focusing attention on the correct posture and breathing. This permits the
development of an awareness of ourselves, the surrounding space and the unrepeatable beauty of the present moment,
the dimension from which it is possible to gain access to the real peace and harmony in which all the forms of
existence in the cosmos live from a beginningless time.
