The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Fourteen: Prospects


A disciple esteemed knowledge of literary Chinese over vernacular Korean script, so the Founding Master said, “The Way and its power originally have nothing to do with letters, so let go of such thoughts. In the future, we will compile all our scriptures in simple language that the general public can readily understand; the day is not far away, either, when the peoples of the world will each translate and widely study these scriptures we have compiled in our own vernacular language. So do not revere only difficult literary Chinese.”
