If you want to be free,
Get to know your real self.
It has no form, no appearance,
No root, no basis, no abode,
But is lively and buoyant.
It responds with versatile facility,
But its function cannot be located.
Therefore when you look for it,
You become further from it;
When you seek it
You turn away from it all the more.
- Linji (d. 867)

Zen mind is not Nihilism or 'dead mind', but instead it is removing all thoughts, subjects, objects, ideas and all previous childhood training from our minds, in order to clear the mind for higher levels of awareness to be used on a daily basis during the course of our very busy lives.
It allows us to perceive things as they actually are, and then act more efficiently and creatively toward moving forward through life.
Thanks for the beautiful words (vow) and video.
pretty video,I watched it without sound.
