1. Cardinal Dharma Master Chŏngsan admonished ordained devotees and wrote for them a phrase in literary Chinese: ‘Let your vision pervade the universe,/ May your faith and dedication remain consistent from past to present.’ He then explained, “Vision refers to your aspiration and your plans; only when your aspiration and plans are grand will your success also be grand. Faith and dedication refer to belief and devotion; you will accomplish a grand enterprise only if your sincerity and effort do not flag till your aspiration is realized.”
