The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Ten: Belief and Dedication


A disciple asked, “Not only is my innate ability dull, but I have only been practicing for a short time. I don’t know when I shall ever succeed. What shall I do?” The Founding Master said, “Practice in religious orders has little to do with one’s innate ability or with how long one has practiced; it depends only on whether or not a person can exert oneself in belief, zeal, questioning, and dedication. Anyone who has wholehearted belief, zeal, questioning, and dedication can be certain of speedy success.”
