Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to familiarize researchers, scholars, and interested readers with the historical influence of Japanese Buddhist Zen meditation techniques on mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) research and practice. The role of D.T. Suzuki is discussed as one of the most influential scholars to transmit information to the West. MBSR techniques, format, and evidence are also explicated.
