28. The Master said to the departed spirits of those students who lost their lives during the April 19th (1960) Student Revolution, “In this world, there are those who are dead though alive, and those who are alive though dead. To be alive or dead depends on whether one’s mind and spirit are alive or dead. For you martyred students at this uprising, although the lifespan of your physical bodies was short, your public-spirited minds for the nation and the entire world will forever live on and never perish. That is your great lifespan, which is forever inextinguishable. I pray that, life after life, you will not regress in the least nor harbor resentments but will progress further, so that you will become leaders of the public throughout all eternity.”
