The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Twelve: Exemplary Acts


The Founding Master said, “When it comes to talent, I don’t have any unusual skills with my hands. When it comes to knowledge, I fall short even in basic education. What do you see in a person like me, who has no talent and no education, that you would believe and follow me?” But the Founding Master, while having no ability, had nothing in which he was not able and, while having no learning, had nothing he did not know. Thus, in delivering sentient beings, his virtue was superior to that of heaven and earth, and, in penetrating into universal principles and human affairs, the radiance of his wisdom was brighter than that of the sun and moon.
