Zen : Key to Your Undiscovered Happiness

by C.N. Hu

When You are Frustrated with Life's Problems, Zen is indispensable!
Zen serves like a boat which can help you cross life's torrents safely. It is like a doctor, whom you do not need while healthy; but when you are ill, he is indispensable. Keeping you serene, contented and free from worry are just a few practical applications of Zen to our daily living.
Zen is an easy-to-understand discussion of Buddhism with application to modern, everyday life.

Zen answers such questions as

  • What is happiness?
  • What is nirvana?
  • Why is meditation as 'the exploration of inner space'?
  • How can tai chi ch'uan be used as a health system?
  • What is the relationship between language and reality?
  • What is the theory of equilibrium in education, in government, and in diet?
  • Why is lateral thinking an expression of the highest wisdom?

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.
