The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts


One day the Founding Master severely scolded one of his disciples. When the disciple reappeared a little later, the Master treated him with a loving look on his sagely face. Another disciple who was next to the Master asked him why. The Master said, “Before, I scolded him to break the perverse mind that he held, but now I am trying to encourage the right mind that has returned.”
