31. The Master said, “When you are engaged in morning and evening mental affirmations, do you have firm faith that you will attain awesome power through becoming one with the truth of the universe? You may wonder what awesome power would be gained by making a short silent mental affirmation, but what we think in our minds penetrates the dharma realm of empty space. Hence, you should always be cautious of the mind’s activities, and not just during prayers; and you should not forget that singleminded prayer during morning and evening becomes a great practice and produces enormous power. The fact that we have been able to endure the war safely was in large measure due to the awesome power of our members’ singleminded prayer. Hence, if we serve others unselfishly and practice with a mind that is free from characteristics, then through that energy our Order, our nation, and the entire world will attain enormous awesome power.”
