A Zen koan can refer to stories, parables, small statements or even a few words of a phrase that reference a larger story used in the practice of Zen Buddhism. They may be taken from the sayings or accounts of Buddhist teachers from the past or they may originate from modern day. Koans can be studied from a historical or literature perspective or contemplating them can form part of meditative practice.

Meditating on a Zen koan is meant to help the person transcend daily thought patterns to arrive at a more enlightened mental place. Koans can pose questions or puzzles that tend to resist being “solved” by rational thought. Rather, they need to be experienced and pondered to create greater spiritual awareness.

Zen Buddhism Meditation Koans Android Application presents the koans in simple yet useful way. Also include some Zen Meditation music to help better understanding of the koans. Hope can help in your Zen Meditation practice.
