Transcript

  • 1. Meditation: Zen, Monks and Nuns By: Grant G. and Andy C.
  • 2. Origin of Zen
    • Zen Buddhism was created by Bodhidharma around 700 A. D.
    • The Rinzai sect was created in Japan in 1191 A. D. by Eisai.
    • The Soto sect was created in Japan in 1227 A. D. by Dogen.
  • 3. Meditation
    • Done by Zen monks and their masters in monasteries.
    • Facing a wall, the monks meditate.
    • They start with times such as twenty minutes and gradually lengthen into days sometimes.
  • 4. How it Grew
    • Monasteries grew and people noticed Zen
    • People noticed it could be a basic religion
    • Arguments broke out between the religions(Zen, Shinto, Confucianism, Taoism, and folk religion) to become the main religion.
    • Monasteries grew armies
    • Samurai realized meditation helped in the battlefield
    • Samurai became Zen
  • 5. Relation to Shinto
    • People recognized Zen as a lifestyle instead of a religion
    • Some people noticed it could merge with Shinto
    • Many similarities between Shinto and Zen such as how careful they both were about nature also helped
  • 6. Life of a Monk/Nun
    • Very organized
    • Always woke up at 3:30 to a bell
    • Every monk/nun took turn as a waiter
    • Every five days monks shave their heads!
    • Shaving shows inner strength
    • Begged 1 st , 3 rd, 6 th and 8 th day in each month
  • 7. Gardens
    • Samurai made all gardens
    • Based on Zen religion
    • Borrowed nature, for example to create the ark of a mountain, they use a lofted bridge instead of a pile of rocks
    • More perfect than nature because plants do not grow in perfect rows like in gardens
