Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
Short extract form Chapter1:

... Consequently, everything we perceive in the world, even the apparent solidness of substance is nothing other than the illusory notion of the mind. However, if we believe we can infer the actual presence of an external world from our sensory perception of it, we are mistaken. The only proof we can provide here is the ability of our senses to function. Yet because our body and thus our senses too are just notions of the mind, this only proves that our consciousness experiences the impressions made by the senses.

Since we only perceive the world through our senses and consciousness, we must therefore concede that the only world we can speak of is the world of our subjective experience. And in the end this means: The world is nothing more than “our imagination”.

An excellent example for the Mind-Only-Teaching is the following Zen story:

The temple flag above the great gate of the Zen monastery of the Sixth Patriarch Hui-neng is flapping in the wind. Two monks are standing beneath the flag arguing. One of them says: “Look how the flag moves.” The other says, “No, it’s the wind that moves.” And so they discuss it back and forth and cannot agree. Suddenly, the Sixth Patriarch is standing directly behind the two loud-ranting squabblers and says, “Neither the wind nor the flag moves. Only the mind moves, nothing else.”
