Master Namchun’s ‘Once I was taught to return to the source.’

Master Namchun once said, “Once I was taught to return to the source. If I had thought so, I would have caused a serious disaster.”

 

Student: “I have also been taught to return to the source. Is this teaching wrong?”

Master: Wandering in search of the source following the words ‘Turn to the source’ is a serious disaster.”

Student: “How should I accept it?”

Master: “Return to the source now.”

Commentary:

The best medicine can be poison if used wrongly and poison can be medicine that can save people when used properly.
