The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Five: Cause and Effect


The Founding Master said, “By committing unwholesome actions and becoming the frequent subject of others’ criticism, one’s road ahead becomes dark. There was a man who was appointed a magistrate of a county and severely abused his power. He took many people’s lives and confiscated their property so that when the villagers gathered, they all cursed that man. Finally, the words of the villagers became the seed that eventually made his life miserable and before their very eyes, he became the epitome of someone whose transgressions met their retribution. The lips of many people are indeed terrifying!”
