Perhaps the most recognizable style of silent meditation is known as Zen and "imported" to the West from Japan. However, the same silent style has different names in various countries. Zen in Japan is Chan in China, Thien in Vietnam and Son in Korea. This distinctive style first emerged in China more than 1500 years ago. Whatever the name, the goal is identical in all traditions: to live out a life of compassion and wisdom.
