26. The Master said, “If perverse thoughts take root in your mind, then, by meditating on the Il-Won-Sang, endeavor to recover your original nature, which is void, round, and right. By silently reflecting on the Founding Master’s saintly visage, endeavor to take after his way of using the mind, which is fair, just, and compassionate. By arousing your self-awareness as a disciple of the Buddha and a public-spirited person, endeavor to eliminate perverse thoughts. In that case, the perverse mind will be readily transformed into the right mind.”
