Part Two : Doctrine

Chapter One: The Il-Won-Sang

Section Two: Faith in Il-Won-Sang

To believe in the truth of Il-Won-Sang as the original source of all things in the universe;
To believe in it as the mind-seal of all the buddhas and sages;
To believe in it as the original nature of all sentient beings;
To believe in it as the realm where there is no discrimination regarding great and small, being and nonbeing;
To believe in it as the realm where there is no change amid arising and ceasing, coming and going;
To believe in it as the realm where wholesome and unwholesome karmic retribution has ceased;
To believe in it as the realm where language, names, and signs are utterly void; in that realm of voidness, to believe that the discrimination regarding great and small, being and nonbeing, appears through the light of the void and calm, numinous awareness;
To believe that the distinction between wholesome and unwholesome karmic retribution comes into being;
To believe that language, names, and signs become obvious, so that the triple worlds in the ten directions appear like a jewel in hand;
To believe that the creative transformations of true voidness and marvelous existence freely conceal and reveal themselves through all things in the universe throughout vast eons without beginning:
This is faith in Il-Won-Sang.
