Zen

Zen is the Japanese name for a branch of Buddhism originally practiced in China. Legend states that an Indian monk named Bodhidharma traveled to China and declared to Emperor Wudi that meditation, not good deeds, is the path to enlightenment. Bodhidharma himself is said to have sat in constant meditation for nine years. His teachings—which emphasize breaking through the boundaries of logical thought—developed fully in Japan by the 12th century, where they came to be called Zen. What is "zazen"? Discuss

Perfume

Perfume is a mixture of alcohol and fragrant essential oils. Animal substances—such as musk, ambergris, and civet—were first added as fixatives in the Middle Ages. Since the early 19th century, chemists have produced thousands of synthetic essential oils, some imitating natural products and others yielding new scents. Most perfumes today are blends of natural and synthetic scents and of fixatives that add pungency. Fine perfumes may blend more than 100 ingredients. What is a fragrance wheel?

Veganism

Vegans abstain from the ingestion of animal products for political and religious reasons, to enjoy health benefits, or to support animal rights. Many vegans extend the vegan philosophy into other areas of their lives and avoid using all animal products, including leather, silk, honey, whey, and gelatin. Vegan diets tend to be high in dietary fiber and low in saturated fat and cholesterol but can sometimes lead to deficiencies in nutrients, such as vitamin B12. Who coined the term "vegan"?
