View Full Version : Chan buddhism
is Chan Buddhism exactly the same as Zen except in Chinese ?
Not quite exactly. Both Soto and Rinzai Zen have their own distinctive stamps.
And Chan has it's own distinct characteristics from either Soto or Rinzai.
More importantly, why do you ask?
Im a pagan. I was thinking I would like to get involved in Eastern religion.
I would suggest you find a teacher.
Of what ? I dont even know which type of eastern religion..
Then a bookstore is your best bet.
What in particular interests you in "eastern religion."
