[Precepts and disciplinary] rules [do] not only refer [to] coarse deeds only.
If not managing [matters with] reverence [and] maintaining sincerity, [this is] considered as violating [of disciplinary] rules [too].
And [understanding of karmic] cause [and] effect [for moral conduct, to avoid evil and do good, is] also as [disciplinary] rules’ guiding principles’ framework [or outlining skeleton] within.
If people [do] not know [about] cause [and] effect, and [are with] concealing [of evil] causes [and] hiding [of their] effects, all [these are regarded] as going against [disciplinary] rules.
Of people [who practise] mindfulness [of] Buddha, [their] raising [of] minds [and] moving [of] thoughts, [should] constantly [be] with [the] Buddha together.
Thus [is this with the traditions of] Vinaya, teachings, Chán [and] Pure Land, [as] one path together practising.
Pure Land Tradition’s 13th Patriarch Great Master Yìnguāng
