Zen poems and koans are parts of the tradition of Buddhism. They have been written and uttered by the faith believers for the purpose of bringing about knowledge, wisdom, rationality, and others. Zen Buddhism means understanding and interpreting reality in a quite unique way. Through zen poems and koans, one can understand more deeply all the things that surround us. While the former centers on poetry and expression, koans on the other hand help you bring about enlightenment in your life.
