The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Ten: Belief and Dedication


The Founding Master said, “There are some among you who, despite forming a teacher-disciple relationship with me, have not preserved that trust and, by remaining attached to your own talents and opinions, try to carry on as you please. What value is there then in meeting me? If a practitioner has generated a great vow, and great belief and dedication, and devotes his or her heart completely to me, then no matter what I say or what work I assign, he or she will never doubt or blame me. Only in this way will my mind and the disciple's mind mutually connect, and my effort and his effort not be wasted.”
