1 Today’s society is very materialistic due to the advancement of material development. Most ordinary people cannot resist materialistic temptations. People are busy seeking personal gain in fame and in wealth, and do whatever it takes to pursue material pleasures and satisfy personal desires.
2 Take a look at the temples around you. The incense and candles are always lit. Crowds of people are entering or leaving the temples. How many of them enter the temples for reasons other than for their own personal sake? How many of them prayed for others?
3 But strivers of the Lord of Universe Church have to abandon this secular idea. We should not seek our own blessings, but dedicate ourselves to all the living beings of this world.
