Welcome to the Zen Guide, a simple site that provides basic principles of Buddhism, its practices including a guide to zazen, its related media including on-line text of books, sutras, koans, and an online community forum to foster discussions, get help, and meet others who are interested in Buddhism. There is of course, a brief history of Buddhism, as well as a user-submitted searchable directory of Zen/Buddhism groups.

A random short story for you to ponder.
On one occasion, the Buddha said to the monks this:

"No other form do I know, O monks, that so persists in obsessing the mind of a man as the form of a woman.
The form of a woman persists in obsessing the mind of a man.

"No other sound do I know that so persists in obsessing the mind of a man as the sound of a woman...
No other scent do I know ... No other taste do I know ... No other touch do I know that so persists in obsessing
the mind of a man as the touch of a woman. The touch of a woman persists in obsessing the mind of a man.

"No other form do I know, O monks, that so persists in obsessing the mind of a woman as the form of a man.
The form of a man persists in obsesssing the mind of a woman.

"No other sound do I know that so persists in obsessing the mind of a woman as the sound of a man...
No other scent do I know... No other taste do I know ... No other touch do I know that so persists in obsessing
the mind of a woman as the touch of a man. The touch of a man persists in obsessing the mind of a woman."

Anguttara Nikaya
translated by Nyanaponika Thera and Bhikkhu Bodhi
