The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts

37

In leading the congregation, the Founding Master established four strict prohibitions: one, turning public property into private possessions; two, after one has been ordained, staying for an extended period without good reason with one’s own family or running a private business; three, seeking only one’s own ease and not cooperating with others in public affairs; four, not cultivating the great Way of progressing in concert through the Threefold Study, but developing only absorption and quiescence in the hopes of gaining supernatural powers.”
