Author C. N. Hu
C. N. Hu was brought up a shramanera (novice monk) the first ten years of his life in China. A graduate of Saint John's University in Shanghai and the University of California at Berkeley, the late Professor Hu taught Chinese language and culture at the Defense Language Institute for 30 years.
An excerpt from Zen:The basic problems we face are that we can never get what we want in life. And worse still, our goals constantly change. Once we have reached one goal, we might have something else in mind. In other words, we merely exist. We do not live. We are always in the expectation of living. Because of this pattern of yearning, we are constantly confronted with frustrations. Life turns out to be just a problem solving process. It is quite obvious and everyone can see for himself that there are more failures than successes in life. And furthermore what we normally consider to be a success in life is, in effect, transitory. There is no permanency whatsoever.
In order to avoid frustration and stop worrying on one hand, and to attain peace and enjoy happiness on the other, we must re-evaluate our mode of living and we must re-examine our traditional value judgment. Above all, we must re-orient our philosophy of life.
Zen can soothe your tension. Zen can make you regain your perspectives in life. Zen understands and appreciates the intimacy of psychosomatic relations. While stressing mental hygiene, it can offer you physical well-being.
