What is Moving?
What is Moving?Monk X: The flag is moving.
Monk Y: The wind is moving.
Huineng: The mind is moving.
Comments: Is the flag or wind moving? Is it only the mind that observes and differentiates what is moving that moves? The definitions of flag, wind and movement are created by the mind. Zen Patriarch Venerable Huineng points to the root, while the monks argue over the surface. - Shen Shi'an
