THE DHARMA DISCOURSES OF CARDINAL MASTER CHŎNGSAN(CHŎNGSAN CHONGSA PŎBŎ)

Part Two: Dharma Discourses

Chapter One: His Affinities with the Founding Master

11

11. The Master said, “Although many buddhas have passed through the world, there has never been in the past, and never will be in the future, a teaching as consummate as that of our Founding Master. This is because, first, the Founding Master has established the Il-Won-Sang as the foundation of truth, the object of faith, and the model for practice; by integrating everything into this Il-Won, he enabled us to apply it directly to our faith and our practice. Second, by elucidating the great moral principle of the Fourfold Grace, the Founding Master perfectly clarified not only the moral principle governing the relations between human beings, but also human beings’ relations with Heaven and Earth, parents, fellow beings, and the law. Third, not mentioning miracles but taking the essential dharma of the Way of humanity as the core, he bestowed the true dharma of delivering the masses through the consummate great Way that accords with truth and reality. There still are not many who truly recognize the Founding Master, but in the future as the world develops more and more, the world will widely acknowledge the Founding Master as the new presiding Buddha of the age.”
