Chinese Lessons

Daily Chinese lessons began as soon as the Shurangama Sutra Session ended. Through those precious lessons, which the Master faithfully taught, regardless of how busy, how weary, how pressured, or how sick he might be, we learned everything from the criteria for being good people all the way to the method for becoming Buddhas. Words cannot express how much of the Master's life-blood, how much of his soul and spirit went into educating his disciples!

The lesson reads: "A worthy one of old said, 'If anyone is killed, it is as if I killed him myself. If anyone has been cheated, it is as if I cheated him myself.' At all times, look within. 'If you offend before heaven, you have no place to pray.'"
