The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Fifteen: Entrusting


In January of the twenty-sixth year of the Won Era (1941), the Founding Master passed down his transmission verse and said, “The persons of the Way of old generally passed down their dharma transmission verses hurriedly at the time of their death, but I will give it to you in advance. They also transmitted it in secret to just a few disciples, but I am hereby giving it to all of you equally. Whether one receives the dharma completely or not, however, depends on one’s own practice. Thus, each of you must devote yourself to practice, so that you will have no regrets in the future.”
