Commentary On The Sutra Of Hui Nung--The pennant blown about by the wind

Ah..Ya..Ya! My Serene Hui Nung, Not "the Wind", Not "The Pennant", Nor "The Mind" Was In Motion; Apparently That Was "The pennant blown about by the wind".
@HuiNeng   Bhikkhu Yin Zung, Master of the Dharma, was lecturing on the Maha Parinirvana Sutra in the Temple. It happened that one day, when a pennant was blown about by the wind, two Bhikkhus entered into a dispute as to what it was that was in motion, the wind or the pennant. As they could not settle their difference, Hui Neng submitted to them that it was neither, and that what actually moved was their own mind.

Commentary On 101ZenStories--Bodhidharma's Peace Of Mind
 
No, One's Mind Cannot Be Pacified By Others! @101ZenStories Bodhidharma sat facing the stone wall. The Second Patriarch of Chinese C'han (Zen), Huika, stood long in the thick snow. Finally, he severed his own arm and presented it to Bodhidharma. He said, “Your student cannot pacify his mind. You, the First Patriarch, please, give me peace of mind!” The First Patriarch replied, “Bring that mind, I will calm it down!” The Second Patriarch said, “I search for it everywhere, but I cannot find it!” Bodhidharma replied, “I have already pacified it for you!”
