“At that time there were two monks who were discussing the topic of the wind and flag. One said, "The wind ismoving." The other said, "The flag is moving." They argued incessantly. Hui Neng stepped forward and said, "Thewind is not moving, nor is the flag. Your minds, Kind sirs, are moving." Everyone was startled.”
