The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts


Tosan An Ch’angho came to visit the Founding Master. The Master greeted him warmly and consoled him for the hardships he had gone through on behalf of the Korean nation. Tosan said, “What I am doing is small in scope and short in skill, bringing little benefit to the nation, and even leading to the persecution of many of my comrades by the colonial police. But what you, sir, are doing is vast in scope and proficient in its expediencies. While inwardly making great contributions to the multitude of our compatriots, you are not directly oppressed and intimidated much. Your ability, sir, is truly magnificent!”
