Historical Information and Interpretation
The word "禪" now usually refers to a type of meditation that involves absolute stillness and tranquility to achieve a state of enlightenment (1)(2).  Note that this term in ancient Chinese does have other meanings like "worship" (",祭天也。"――《說文》),  "abdicate" ("帝光位於虞舜。"――《三國志·文帝紀》) or "inherit" ("四先生歿後,廣仲尚能其家學。"――全祖望《書宋史胡文定公傳後》)(3).
