Zen 101

Zen is not a conventional philosophy. A conventional philosophy has a worldview, an outlook as to how one should think and live. Zen is about un-knowing, dismantling neat packages of thought that purport to explain things.

Liberation does not come from an accumulation of mundane knowledge; it is a dropping off of body and mind. A large accumulation of knowledge-based opinions is a hindrance to awakening.
