    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is a presentation of an anthology of early zen Buddhist works and their influences. The readings, however, present highly influential and interesting ideas that may be tough to understand at first, but once understood, can have a profound impact on the way one lives one's life. Take the words of these zen masters to heart, but with a grain of salt, and you will see that the world is both more and less mysterious than you once thought.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the emergence and development of Buddhist ideas throughout Japan and China. And about the ideas themselves, such as the lack of intrinsic value of all objects and concepts and the "actively empty" mind in regards to meditation practices.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Seek to understand the concepts presented in the readings, however long and tedious they may be. Create mnemonics or associative tools to help you remember the various people and their individual ideas.
