As the founder of the University of Buddhism, the founding of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, the basis of the base to propagate Buddhism in the United States. At Sacred Heart, the monk built the forest, trained the monks and nuns, and created the conditions for the righteousness of spiritual practice. He advocated that all Buddhists should unite and should merge the South, the North. Thus, many occasions of the transmission of Tam Dan Dai World held at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas are attributed to Mahayana and Mahayana higher education co-chaired.
I do not want to see monks in the United States ordained for improper motives. So, he set up the room for the disciples:
"Cold dead, not grace
Hungry dead, not conditioned
Poor death, not the coast
Depending on the coast, not changing grace
We decided to practice this three-pointed card
Out of network for the Buddha
Create a network for the increase
Righteous for the cause
Where understanding, where reason
Always be the best of the heart. "
Wherever the Venerable Master came to teach the Dharma, he always advised people to follow the six major teachings of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas: no fighting, no greed, no desire, no selfishness, no self-interest, no talking to lie

The six sacred signs are the six bright paths, and if you can memorize these six, you can become Buddhas. To become a Buddha, to become a Bodhisattva, to become Thanh Van, Arhat. These are the only important ones. If practiced, you can use for life, but not fully utilized! "
