The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Six: Doubts Clarified

26

A disciple asked, “In The Principal Book of Won-Buddhism, what is the relationship between each item in the ‘Items of Heedfulness in Daily Applications’ and the ‘Threefold Study’?” The Founding Master said, “The Items of Heedfulness in Daily Applications have been established by splitting up the Threefold Study. The fifth of its items is the path to promote progress in Cultivating the Spirit. The second, third, and fourth items are the path to promote progress in Inquiry into Human Affairs and Universal Principles. The first item is the path to promote progress in Choice in Action. The sixth item is the path to examine and assess whether or not you have carried out the practice of the Threefold Study.” The disciple asked again, “How would it turn out if you were to divide each item in the Items of Heedfulness in Daily Applications between action and rest?” The Founding Master said, “Items three, four, and five are the things to practice when at rest, and the path to prepare the materials of practice when in action. Items one, two, and six are the things to practice when in action and the path to prepare the materials of practice when at rest. These paths all complement one another, and are paths to ensure that you will not neglect practice for even a moment.” The disciple asked again, “What is the relationship between the Items of Heedfulness in Daily Applications and the Items of Heedfulness Regarding Temple Visits?” The Founding Master said, “The Items of Heedfulness in Daily Applications are a rapid method that enables one to practice consistently while living in human society, regardless of whether one is learned or ignorant, a man or woman, young or old, wholesome or unwholesome, noble or common. The Items of Heedfulness Regarding Temple Visits are a method that complements and points to the Items of Heedfulness in Daily Applications.”
