The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Thirteen: On the Order


A disciple who was in charge of an orchard that belonged to the Order ended up killing numerous living things every day with fungicides and insecticides. Nervous about his actions, he asked the Master about this. The Founding Master said, “Do not be concerned at all about the retribution and exert yourself in this public service without any thought of self. Then, no retribution will return to you. If, however, you were to take even a bit of personal advantage while performing these duties, you would not be able to avoid retribution. Thus, be extremely cautious.”
