The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts


Once when Yi Unoe was seriously ill, a family member came rushing over to the Founding Master to consult with him about a remedy. The Founding Master said, “Call a doctor and get treatment for her.” A bit later, after she had recovered from her illness, the Founding Master said, “When Unoe was seriously ill, it was not really right to come to me first to ask for a remedy. I am a teacher who, knowing the Way and its power, treats your minds’ illnesses. There are various types of medical specialists available to treat the illnesses of your physical body. From now on, you may consult me for the illnesses of the mind, but for your physical illnesses, consult a doctor. That is the correct understanding of the Way.”
