  One day, Chang-sha Ching-tsen (d. 868), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an masters,

THE MIND OF NON-DISCRIMINATION
The Mind of Non-discrimination is the Mind that sees things-as-they-are or things-as-It-is.

The Mind of Non-discrimination sees a man as a man, a woman as a woman.
It does not mess up a man with a woman or vice versa, and treats them both equally.
Hence, female is equal to male and there is no idea of discrimination or duality here.

The Mind of Non-discrimination sees a white one as a white one, a color one as a color one.
It does not mess up the white one with the color one or vice versa, and treats them both equally.
Hence, the white one is equal to the color one and there is no idea of discrimination or duality here.

The Mind of Non-discrimination sees a good one as a good one and a bad one as a bad one.
It does not mess up the good one with the bad one or vice versa, and treats them both equally.
Hence, the bad one is equal to the good one and there is no idea of discrimination or duality here.

The Mind of Non-discrimination feels happy when sees others happy and feels sad when sees others suffer.
It does not mess up the happy one with the suffered one or vice versa, and treats them both equally.
Hence, the suffered one is equal to the happy one and there is no dea discrimination or duality here.

The Mind of Non-discrimination sees a big stone as a big stone and a small stone as a small stone.
It does not mess up the big stone with the small stone or vice versa, and treats them both equally.
Hence, the small stone is equal to the big stone – the minimum is equal to the maximum -
and there is no idea of discrimination or duality here.

Therefore, the Mind of Non-discrimination is free from whom or whatever It is with.
