What Does ZEN Mean?

ZEN means "relaxed" or "in a state of relaxation."

ZEN is a school of Mahayana Buddhism that originated in China during the Tang dynasty. ZEN Buddhism preaches enlightenment by direct intuition through meditation.

In English, ZEN is used to describe a state of feeling relaxed and peaceful, completely free of worries. For example:
  • "My flight was canceled, but I was totally ZEN about it. I was so late, I would have missed it anyway."
  • "I like my ZEN wrapped in chocolate and accompanied by a bottle of red."
  • "I am completely ZEN when I'm in the mountains. Just me and my tent."
