The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Eleven: Maxims

29

The Founding Master said, “Do not say without meaning it that you will give something to others, nor exaggerate what you have given; these words will instead become debts and damage your virtue. Also, do not make insincere vows to the dharma realm of empty space; the lie you have told to the dharma realm of empty space will become the source of frightening transgression and suffering.”
