Propagation of Dharma and salvation of beings constitute the Bodhisattva Path.
Accumulation of merits and cultivation of virtues are causes for Enlightenment.
Selecting beams and pillars for the Dharma Hall is up to their dependability.
Sincere practitioners should bravely pledge to undertake Dharma services.


Engaging in Dharma services is the way of the Bodhisattva Path. Only through life-long dedication in Dharma practices and propagation could habitual worldly tendencies be dissipated and attainment of realizations experienced. From Buddha's point of view, beams and pillars for the Dharma Hall must be selected from among dependable Dharma instruments. Hence, sincere practitioners should transcend worldly considerations and bravely make their pledges to undertake Dharma services.
