Abstract

Zen Buddhism and meditation have been practiced for more than a millennia. Though originally observed in a few Asian countries, these practices have found their way into western society. By studying the origins of Zen Buddhism, it is possible to not only better understand the culture that Japanese theatre has grown in, but to better understand one's self.
