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