27. In the fourth month of the following year (1961), at his sixtieth-birthday ceremony, the Master delivered a dharma talk: “I appreciate the fact that all of you fellow adherents have heeded my requests and limited the celebration to this simple ceremony, and will instead embark on a project that will be useful to the future of the Order. In commemoration, I too intend to renew our original vow with all of you fellow adherents by explicating the Ethics of the Threefold Unity (Samdong Yulli), which will become the fundamental principle for building a single world.” After delivering a dharma talk on this Threefold Unity, he established the Pŏbŭn Chaedan (Dharma Grace Foundation) with the donations offered on that day, which became the parent body of the health-care organization for ordained devotees.
