The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


The Founding Master said, “What I can’t bear myself is what others can’t bear, either. What is pleasurable to me is what others find pleasurable, too. I shouldn’t do to others what I find regrettable myself; I should do to others what I also find satisfying. This, in short, is the dharma that thinks of the other’s state of mind by inferring from one's own. If you practice in this manner for a long, long time, each of you will receive the grace of influence from one another, eliminating the gap between self and others.”
