The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts


A disciple flagrantly violated the order’s regulations, so the disciples met to open a public discussion for his expulsion. The Founding Master said, “How can you possibly initiate such an action? This is not my will. My disciples do not stop at tens of thousands of people and my temple grounds do not stop at tens of thousands of square meters of facilities. All the people of this world are my people and every facility in this world is my practice site. Someone who has been following me may decide to leave, but I will never abandon him first.” He then called the disciple to him and both scolded him strictly and admonished him tenderly, so that finally the disciple was able to attain the path of repentance and make a fresh start.
