Zen lays special emphasis on meditation, in another words, it places less emphasis on scriptures, preferring to focus on direct spiritual breakthroughs to truth.

Zen Buddhism (禅), a form of Buddhism, is popular in China. It is divided into two main schools:one greatly favouring the use in meditation as a device for spiritual break-through, and the other focusing more on “just sitting”.Zen Buddhist loose the grip of the ego and to facilitate the penetration into the realm of the True Self or Formless Self, which is equated with the Buddha himself. When thoughts and fixation on the little “I” are transcended, an Awakening to a universal, non-dual Self occurs: “When we let go of thoughts and wake up to the reality of life that is working beyond them, we discover the Self that is living universal non-dual life (before the separation into two) that pervades all living creatures and all existence.” Thinking and thought must therefore not be allowed to confine and bind one.
