One day a monk paid a visit to Tinh Khong (1091-1170), a Vietnamese Zen master, who was of the tenth generation of Vo Ngon Thong lineage, and asked:
-From old days it was talked about "direct pointing", what does that mean?
BODY-N-MIND AS BODY-N-MIND
Apart from this body-n-mind, nowhere else the consciousness can be.
When one is in ignorance, his body-n-mind is the one of ignorance. When he's indulging in desires, his body-n-mind is the one of desires. When he is in anger or hatred, his body-n-mind is the one of anger or hatred. When he is awakened, his body-n-mind is the one of awakening.
What one needs to do is to be aware and awake at every moment. When the mutation occurs in him, everything immediately falls in its place.
