Zen meditation, known as “Chan” in Chinese, flourished in China around 700 A.D., providing spiritual nourishment for countless people. Chung Tai Zen Center of Sunnyvale inherits the traditional Chinese Linji lineage.
Through Zen meditation, we can reach an understanding (enlightenment) of life’s difficult problems and thereby gain true wisdom and peace of mind. The key to enlightenment is by reflecting inward into our own minds and attaining unbiased perception of reality.
