The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Fifteen: Entrusting


A few months before his nirvana, the Founding Master often charged both the congregation and specific individuals, “I will soon be going to a remote place for self-cultivation. Reflect on whether you will regress or not even when I am gone, and fortify your minds anew. The present day is definitely a time of trial, so those with shallow faith will wilt, but those with firm faith will see good results. My dharma is transmitted so that anyone with faith and dedication and with public-spiritedness can receive it. Do not bemoan later that you failed to receive this dharma, but make haste to take this right dharma and make it your own flesh and blood.”
