Zen meditation is a form of mental stillness and calm. It is not a religion but a system of living, a method for attaining complete release from the controls of the physical world.
Sitting still is a practise which allows your mind to become quiet and relaxed. You'll gradually become aware of your surrounding environment.
Success is achieved when reasoning is stopped. This is where the experience and development of intuition may become your true reality.
This unique approach is through silent sitting until the mind becomes empty. The essence is the dimension of thought without any individual consciousness. Some of the most important principles are...

Just as in budo, the first level of training is on the conscious use of willpower to act on the principles. This period may last 5-10 years.
The second level of training is concentration without consciousness, where the student is at peace. This is when the student receives knowledge and becomes an assistant master.
The third level is where the spirit achieves freedom and the student is in a position to become a master in his own right. These 3 stages are also found in budo and takes a lot of discipline and plenty of patience.
