The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter One: Prologue


Upon attaining great enlightenment on the twenty-eighth of April (twenty-sixth day of the third lunar month), the first year of the Won-Buddhist Era (1916 C.E.), the Founding Master declared, “All things are of a single body and nature; all dharmas are of a single root source. In this regard, the Way (to) that is free from aris-ing and ceasing and the principle of the retribution and response of cause and effect, being mutually grounded on each other, have formed a clear and rounded framework.”
