2. The Master said to Kim Taegŏ (1914–1998) and his attendant, “This is an age of Great Opening and interchange; everything is being communicated and harmonized. Hence, in our scriptures, any passages whose application might be construed as confined to a specific locality or religious sect should be appropriately revised at this time, so that the Founding Master’s sacred original intent may be made fully manifest and the dignity of the texts as the presiding scriptures of this age may not suffer in the least. Since their main tenets are already well defined, you may elaborate on or leave specific passages out, as necessary. So long as the Fourfold Grace, the Four Essentials, the Threefold Study, and the Eight Articles are clearly revealed, our scriptures will serve as the great dharma for all time.”
