The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts


A young dog that had been raised at Headquarters was mauled by a large dog in the village and he whimpered pitifully as he neared death. Hearing the dog’s cry, the Founding Master said, “Whether human beings or animals, we’re all the same in valuing life and hating death.” A look of pity then came over his sagely countenance. When the dog finally died, he provided the expenses for a deliverance service and ordered the officer in charge of rituals: “For the sake of the departed spirit of the dog, perform the deliverance service for seven seven-day periods.”
