Zenwords Cover Zenwords is a Zendex of Zenguistic Zenfinitions. “Years ago, I wrote 16 definitions that seemed to be true from within the awareness that is called Zen, and a friend said, ‘If you wrote 365, you could make a calendar.’ As someone susceptible to suggestion, after a moment of despairing apprehension, I did, and published the Zencalendar in 2001. Three more batches followed and became the Zenictionary. These koanclusions, or Zenwords, evolved from those earlier works.”

The Zencabulary below contains the words that these zenwords were taken from, perhaps making the understanding a bit more clear.
