31. The Master said, “Worldly people consider gold, silver, and jewels to be the most precious of treasures, but in actuality all things that have signs are mere vanities. There are two true treasures in human life. The first is our true mind, which is eternally unextinguished and functions as the master of our true self generation after generation, lifetime after lifetime. The second is the right dharma, which helps us gain true wisdom and merit by searching out our true minds. The true mind, internally, and the right dharma, externally, are our eternal treasures.”
