The Meaning of the Term Zen The designation of this school of the Buddha-Way as Zen, which means sitting meditation, is derived from a transliteration of the Chinese word Chán. Because the Chinese term is in turn a transliteration of the Sanskrit term dhyāna, however, Zen owes its historical origin to early Indian Buddhism, where a deepened state of meditation, called samādhi, was singled out as one of the three components of study a Buddhist was required to master, the other two being an observation of ethical precepts (sīla) and an embodiment of nondiscriminatory wisdom (prajñā).

The reason that meditation was singled out for the designation of this school is based on the fact that the historical Buddha achieved enlightenment (nirvāna) through the practice of meditation.

‪Timeless Quotes From the Buddha‬‏ Jiddu Krishnamurti. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Jiddu Krishnamurti Krishnamurti dans les années 1920 Jiddu Krishnamurti (ou Jidhu Krishnamurti) (en télougou జిడ్డు కృష్ణ మూర్తి et en tamoul கிருஷ்ணமூர்த்தி), né à Madanapalle (Andhra Pradesh) le 11 mai 1895 et décédé à Ojai (Californie) le 17 février 1986, est un philosophe d'origine indienne promoteur d'une éducation alternative. Apparue au sein de la théosophie et de la contreculture des années 1960, sa pensée exerça une influence notable sur des auteurs et des personnalités de différentes disciplines. D'abord présenté dès son adolescence par la société théosophique de l'époque comme un messie potentiel, il a opéré un revirement un peu plus tard pour développer une thèse radicalement opposée, reposant principalement sur l'idée qu'une transformation de l'humain ne peut se faire qu'en se libérant de toute autorité.

Why I Am Not A Christian, by Bertrand Russell

Published in pamphlet form in that same year, the essay subsequently achieved new fame with Paul Edwards' edition of Russell's book, Why I Am Not a Christian and Other Essays ... (1957). As your Chairman has told you, the subject about which I am going to speak to you tonight is "Why I Am Not a Christian. " Perhaps it would be as well, first of all, to try to make out what one means by the word Christian. It is used these days in a very loose sense by a great many people.
