Hi everyone,
In traditional buddhist meditation, there is a lot of focus on the jhanas and going to higher states of meditation - higher jhanas.

Zen is, as far as I understand, the japanese word for jhana (Chan in Chinese) but I believe there is not the same understanding of what it means?

I apologise if the question is very simple, this is pretty new to me, but I'd be grateful if someone could explain or point me in the right direction regarding things to read...
