Zen Story

The Sixth Ancestor Huineng came across two monks who were arguing about a banner flapping in the wind. One said " The banner is moving. " The other said  " The Wind is moving." They went back and forth without coming to agreement.
The Sixth Ancestor said  " It is not  that the wind is moving, it is not  that the banner moves ; it's your mind that is moving." The two monks were stunned.
