15. At the graduation ceremony at Tongsan Meditation Center, the Master delivered this admonition: “Sŏn is the quintessence of the Buddhadharma; a meditation center is a training site that specializes in this quintessence. Tongsan is the very first of our specialized meditation centers to have opened. Although it still has not overcome the poverty of its beginning days, nevertheless, through a spirit that takes as its standards the principles of substance, the study of the Way, and public service, I request that you promote in both this Order and this world the Sŏn tradition in which you have trained thus far, so that the prestige of this meditation center and our Order will shine forever throughout the world.”
