Satori is the term used in Japanese Zen for the intuitive realization of the true nature of reality, in contra-distinction to an intellectual, logical understanding of the world as grasped by a dualistic mind. It constitutes a new, holistic point of view for looking at things. All conditions of satori are naturally in the mind, merely waiting for maturation. Since the experience of satori can be communicated to others only if they have already experienced it themselves, the instruction of Zen can at best suggest or show the way so that one’s attention may be directed toward the goal.
