Zen – A Japanese school of Buddhism that emphasises the value of meditation and intuition
Note: There are at least 13 Buddhist sects and 56 schools in Japan, such as Nara, Tendai, Shingon, Amida and Nichiren.
This Japanese school think their school is the zenith (zen) of Buddhism. All at this Japanese school hold a statue up to the zenith at the start of the day.
Please note: The kids don't hold a statue of Buddha up to the zenith each morning but it is a great way to remember that zen is a form of Buddhism.
