Be ZEN

Hello. This is Be ZEN.by mudlee

I’m a 28 year old guy from Hungary, who is very curious about everything related to zen, Buddhism, krishna, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not somebody that lives in a temple, or has a ponytail like people chanting „Hare Krishna”. I work as a software developer at a tiny start-up company and I live in a regular flat. I just really interested in this stuff, and I’d like to share I’ve learned so far. That’s why I started this blog. My motto is: „if I can help at least one person, it will have been worth it”. I have to mention, that I was – and I am – really inspired by Leo Babauta, who is the author of zenhabits.net, check it out! I also very much like quotations, so when I quote something, it’s not just because it’s cool and everybody uses quotes. I use quotations to get people to start thinking.

Why I did choose be-zen?

I was thinking a lot about what domain should I choose, then I finally chose be-zen. I chose it because I wanted a domain that had a deep meaning, and it’s also very short. That was the time when I faced with one of my favourite topics, zen. Unfortunately, lots of domains contain the word zen in many configurations. The idea of „be-zen” came from my company’s name, which has the same idea in it: use „be” to call people to act. Actually, I like it. It’s simple, short, and also contains a very deep meaning. So guys, be zen! Yes, the .hu at the end of the domain is the Hungarian top level domain, and it’s because I began writing the blog in Hungarian only. This is the first post to be written in English.

What will you find on this blog?

Well, as I said, I’m not a monk. When I write a post, I always think, am I experienced enough to write something on this topic? Can I answer every question that may appear? Am I relevant enough to call people’s attention to do something, that I don’t usually myself do? Usually I write articles about how to live better, how to think better or even how to keep yourself alive in this fast paced world we live. Now, you might be confused, but don’t be. I invite you to just sample my next blog post, and give it a try.
A man must learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings. - Albert Einstein
