For Buddha’s Teachings, For Sentient Beings

From: Tainan Faith Corps Members and Commissioners’ Leadership Meeting, December 15, 2005.
Master Yin Shun told me, “Our causes and conditions as master and disciple are quite extraordinary. There is so much I wish to say to you, but there is no time. Please remember that once you become a monastic and have received the precepts, you must work ‘for Buddha’s teachings, for sentient beings.’” When he said these words, I immediately prostrated before him. At the very moment that I prostrated, in my heart, I vowed to act according to this teaching.
