There is nothing which does not flow from the Dharma Realm, and nothing which does not return to it.
Na mwo sa dan two su chye dwo ye, e la he di san myau san pu two sye. (3x)
In the future, when people from the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas are going to speak the Dharma, whether inside or outside the City, we should first recite the name of the inexhaustible, boundless Triple Jewel of the ten directions. This line of mantra text means "the inexhaustible, boundless Triple Jewel of all the Buddhas, the Dharma and the Sangha in the ten directions and three times, which fills empty space and pervades the Dharma Realm." Before speaking Dharma for the great assembly, we should first praise the Triple jewel three times. This is our special custom at the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. This is a kind of tradition which we uphold at the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas.
From now on, the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas will be regulated as a Way-place of the ten directions. In a Way-place of the ten directions, everything is equal. There's no mention of master and disciples, for the master and disciples are also equal. We should regard people of the ten directions as our own people, without making distinctions of you and I, of race, of nationality, of self and others. We should treat everyone the same way. These are the rules of a Way-place of ten directions. I have already told everyone that I will not be accepting disciples in the future. What this means is that I will no longer accept disciples at the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, whether lefthome or lay disciples, men or women. I'm closing shop at the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. This so-called retirement means I'm not taking on any responsibility whatsoever here at the Sagely City, because I have made the Sagely City into a Way-place of ten directions in the West.
In the future, our branch Way-places will be branches of the Dharma Realm Buddhist Association, not the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. Nevertheless, they should support and make a yearly contribution to the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. Currently, since there are more women, the branch Way-places will be managed by women, and the men will gather at the City. Women will be sent to all the branch Way-places. Once there, they should make semimonthly reports on their income and expenditures to Dharma Realm Buddhist Association. They cannot waste money, and must diligently propagate the Buddhadharma.
Several decades ago, I said that the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas is the Buddhism of the Dharma Realm. As it is said, "There is nothing which does not flow from the Dharma Realm, and nothing which does not return to it." All the world's Buddhist disciples came from here, and all the world's Buddhists will return to the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. This Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas belongs to everyone; it's not the private property of any individual. It is the property of the public.
