Kenshō is the Japanese Buddhist syncretic with Realization of Self. Kensho means "seeing" while shō means"nature/essence". Thus, Kenshō is seeing one's essential self or Spiritual Ego. The term is generally used equivalent to Satori, but used to refer to a minor glimpse of self, or minor apprehension of truth, at the beginning of an aspirant's journey.
