Q1. Introduction To Zen – Why are we here?

A. Here we are going to discuss what Zen is, and why we should practice Zen. Now, I’m going to ask you this question. Why are you here? That is to say, why do you, we, all of us, want to learn and practice Korean Zen meditation? I think this is a reasonable question for us to ask ourselves at this moment. I think each of us can have a lot of different answers to this question. However, at least one of the most common answers, one of the most popular answers, is, I think, in order to be happy because, whatever we do, whether moral, immoral or unmoral, we do what we do in order to be happy.
