The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Nine: Sending on Spirits in Transition


The Founding Master had Yi Kongju and Sŏng Sŏngwon memorize the following verse, which has come to serve as a sacred incantation/mantra for sending on spirits in transition:
Eternally preserving long life over an eternity of heavens and earths,
It perpetually shines alone as everything passes into extinction over myriad ages.
Awakening to this Way of coming and going is an everlasting flower,
Every step and every thing is a great sacred scripture.
