1. Cardinal Dharma Master Chŏngsan said, “Depending on the level of listeners’ capacities, commonplace words can become a weighty dharma discourse or laboriously presented dharma instructions can become commonplace words. Therefore, those who are listening to the dharma must offer sincere faith and utmost respect to the speaker, and, with a mindset of absolute reverence, must listen earnestly lest even a single word be missed. Only then will that dharma make a deep impression on their minds and be long remembered, bringing them real benefits through its application in actual situations.”
