The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Five: Cause and Effect


A disciple was humiliated by someone and could not overcome his anger. The Founding Master said, “When your turn comes to retaliate, just let it go. If you do so, then that karma will come to rest. But if you retaliate now, then the other person will once again retaliate, and if you each go on retaliating in this manner, there will never be a day when this karma of mutual harm will cease.”
