The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Three: Practice


The Founding Master said, “While teaching many male and female students, I have observed that men for the most part are more generous but more careless, so that lack of reliability becomes a serious fault; women generally are more scrupulous but rigid, so that lack of flexibility becomes their serious fault. In order to cultivate perfect character, men, while remaining generous, should work at making their inner mind firm and sincere; and women, while remaining scrupulous, should work at developing an inner mind that is well-rounded and magnanimous.”
