The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Two: Doctrine

22

The Founding Master said, “Practitioners must maintain the suitable measure of the Threefold Study in facing the thousands of sensory conditions. If we were to give a simile for the Threefold Study, it is like the compass or helmsman in sailing a ship: if there were no compass or helmsman, that ship would not be able to sail across the sea; so too would it be difficult for people to lead a good life in this world if they lack the suitable measure of the Threefold Study.”
