4. In the thirty-first year of the Won-Buddhist Era, fifth month (May/June, 1946), at the opening ceremony of the Yuil Academy, the Master delivered the following admonition: “When the Founding Master was alive, he personally intended to found this academy and even decided on the name Yuil (“One and Only”). However, due to the nation’s conditions at the time, his intent could not be realized, but after Liberation we are now able to open the academy. Thus, you should first understand the true meaning of yuil and achieve its one and only purpose, its one and only activity, and its one and only result. ‘Its one and only purpose’ is to deliver all sentient beings and cure the world. ‘Its one and only activity’ is selfless service to the public. ‘Its one and only result’ is establishing the world of Il-Won. Even though there are now only a few students in a small classroom, in the future numberless persons of the Way will be pouring out to deliver the world in abundant ways.”
