You've started a few topics on zen and I was wondering if you are talking soley about Japanese zen or if you are just using it as an umbrella term for all chan/zen schools?
I guess if I don't specify something about Japanese culture or Japanese Zen masters, then I mean "Zen" in its general "Zen/Chan/Soen/etc." sense.
So in this thread, I mean "Zen" in its most general sense (Chan and the traditions which descended from it).
