Religous experience is a puzzling phenomenon . It has appeared extensively throughout the history of man as a primary element in shaping his culture....I will try to examine the nature of the religious experience as it is conceived by the existential theologian Soren Kierkegaard and the Lin Chi or Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism. Further, I hope to point out the similarities of their methods in attaining this level of experience.
