On Saying Openly What Others Say Surreptitiously

Ven. Master Hua


If you have no questions, I have something to tell you. Having been to Gold Mountain Monastery, when you go out, you should do your best to tell people how terrible this place is. Donít praise Gold Mountain Monastery. What disadvantages does it have? First of all, itís as cold as an icebox here. Second, no one is allowed to be lazy here. Any lazy individual feels ashamed here. Third, this place is like a concentration camp. Everyone here is a criminal. No one is innocent. Thatís what you should tell people, so they will be scared to come here.
