Description When we accept and yield to what is, we are like a snowflake that always falls precisely where it is supposed to fall. The Zen proverb says 'No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place.' From Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia:Zen is a school of Mahayana Buddhism that developed in China during the 6th century as Chan. From China, Zen spread south to Vietnam, northeast to Korea and east to Japan.The word Zen is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the Middle Chinese word (djen) (pinyin: Chan), which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyna, which can be approximately translated as 'absorption' or 'meditative state'.Zen emphasizes the attainment of enlightenment and the personal expression of direct insight in the Buddhist teachings. As such, it de-emphasizes mere knowledge of sutras and doctrine and favors direct understanding through zazen and interaction with an accomplished teacher.If choosing a framed print, I suggest not using a mat.
