“In Zen Buddhism, zazen (literally “seated meditation”; Japanese: 座禅) is a meditative discipline that is typically the primary practice. The precise meaning and method of zazen vary from school to school, but in general, it can be regarded as a means of insight into the nature of existence. In the Japanese Rinzai school, zazen is usually associated with the study of koans. The Sōtō School of Japan, on the other hand, only rarely incorporates koans into zazen, preferring an approach where the mind has no object at all, known as shikantaza”. (source: Wiki)
