Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.

- Hans Margolius -

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's not that banner is moves; it's your mind that is moving. " The two monks were stunned.
