Zen. What does being zen mean?

Zen. More and more people use the phrase “to be Zen” when they want to suggest that this person remain calm and indifferent to what is happening around. However, what does Zen really mean, and from what does this short word come?

Zen is a meditative exercise through which all dualistic differences, such as truth or falsehood, me or you, subject or object, etc., are destroyed. In other words, Zen is a sect of Mahayana Buddhism and one of the most popular forms of Japanese Buddhism. The word Zen means the state of temperament and inner peace.

The noun Zen comes from "chan", which can be translated as "intuition" or "meditation." In Japan, Chan Buddhism (Japanese Zen) was introduced during the periods of Kamakura (1185-1333) and Muromachi (1333-1573), originating from Chinese songs and Yuan songs.
