As sentient beings are suffering, we must be steadfast in Tao pioneering.
As life is full of hardship, we should free ourselves from the mundane matters single-heartedly.
When the Truth is shrouded, one becomes attached and feels discontentment.
As we embark on the journey of Tao cultivation, we must be determined and never backdown.
When our Karma hinders us, it is difficult to change bad behavior.
As we walk along the path of Tao cultivation, we must make and fulfill vows to progress forward, never giving up.
In order not to let down sentient beings and Heavenly Mater,
Make vows earnestly; move forward with determination.
No matter how many obstacles are encountered, we will overcome them with prudence.
No matter how many challenges are met, we will prudently solve them one step at a time
Heaven will not fail us as long as we cultivate together, wholeheartedly in this path of cultivation.
Indeed, Heaven will not fail to support true cultivators who practice with sincerity.
My hope is that all my Hou-Xue are able to wholeheartedly cultivate and pioneer Tao with sincerity –
Achieving the Three Multitudes through strengthening the foundations of the Tao society and the flourishing of Tao affairs; adhering to the Four Excellent Practices to cultivate Tao prudently.
Observe the following Five Cultivation Approaches :
Take a progressive approach in learning Tao;
Take an immersive approach in cultivating Tao;
Take an elucidating approach in expounding Tao;
Take a compliant approach to the systematic regulations in pioneering Tao;
Take a forward-moving approach to fulfill Tao.
When we cultivate and practice truthfully and sincerely, Heaven will not bring us disappointment.
