The word Zen is a Japanese transliteration of the Chinese word Ch’an, which derives from the Sanskrit dhyana, meaning meditation. Zen is the Japanese lineage of a meditation-oriented Buddhist tradition that includes Ch’an (China), Seon (Korea), and Thien (Vietnam). In the West, the word “Zen” is often used as shorthand for the entire tradition.
