Artist's description:

Zen is supposed to have been brought into China by a Hindu named Bodhidharma. Bodhidharma is said to have gazed at the wall of a cave for nine years, in silence. He is illustrated here practising zazen; a heightened form of concentration where the mind achieves maturity through exploring various states of consciousness. Zazen enables the mind to be free of delusions attached to words, ideas and images, a state where no habitual thoughts arise. With zazen, the understanding of one's true nature can be possible. It is seen as a state of pure existence where the true, empty and original mind can be realised.
