AS followers of the Bodhisattvas of the Earth, we must propagate the correct teachings and meaning of Buddhism with composure and compassion, untouched by anger or animosity, no matter what difficulty, insult or calumny we may face. You should be convinced that only through your ceaseless effort of propagation will the world of Buddhahood, the life-condition of enlightenment, manifest itself within your life.

BUT phantom is a phantom. Reality is reality. You are you; nothing more, nothing less. Never forget that, or allow you to become too involved with superficial matters, and lose sight of the true meaning, the true purpose of life.

AS long as they have hope, people will develop. As long as they have hope, people will feel young and their lives will be enjoyable. They will also be healthy and have abundant wisdom. Because they are joyful, they will also be blessed with good fortune.

WHAT makes a person great? What makes someone noble? Greatness does not derive from popularity, status, fame or wealth. Those who uphold and spread the supreme Law are truly noble. Those who embrace the Mystic Law, and who work among the people and for the people, are truly respectworthy.

THE Mystic Law is not a mere phrase. It is not something that someone invented arbitrarily. It is the fundamental principle of peace that pervades the universe.
