7. The Master said, “Whether our practice advances or regresses depends on whether or not there is a limit to our vow, whether or not we harbor self-conceit, and whether or not we maintain a close relationship with a teacher who is eminent in the dharma. Hence, when we are engaged in practice, we must continuously advance by first establishing a great vow that has no bounds or limitations, without harboring the slightest self-conceit, and maintaining close relationships with our teachers and colleagues. Then, we shall never regress but will continuously advance throughout all eternity.”
