The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Thirteen: On the Order


The Founding Master said, “The rapport between master and disciple must be as seamless as that between father and child, if there is to be no impediment to teaching and learning. The rapport between fellow practitioners should be as intimate as that between elder and younger siblings, if there is to be no hesitation in giving counsel or encouragement. Only then will moral energy be immediately shared and the dharma of using one’s mind mutually transmitted, so that the power of a unified group may be achieved in both practice and work.”
