1 It is up to the individual striver’s willingness to chant the Grand Orison. It cannot be coerced. But who should you think of first when you are deciding to chant or not to chant? Why do you want to chant?
2 Based on your opinions, all of you think that the first and foremost thought is to save all the living beings of this world. This is because only when all living beings are saved can there be a future and can there be hope for individuals.
3 Individuals, families, societies, countries, races, and in fact, all of humanity, are of one body. This body is closely related and none of its parts can be missing. When doing for others, you are, in fact, doing for yourselves.
4 I am telling you sincerely right now, that if you choose not to chant, you will not have another opportunity to chant in the future. It would be too late and your regrets will be to no end.
5 When chanting the Orison, if your faith is not firm or you are skeptical, or you are unable to focus your thoughts, it would have no effect.
6 First you must have unwavering faith and pure thoughts, and then your effort can produce tremendous power, which is to say “your faith remains firm and unchanged, and the miasma of demons can be cleared away.”
7 To avert and dispel nuclear destruction means to stall all nuclear wars for as long as possible so more people’s hearts can be saved, with the hope that the heavenly mind can be turned to reduce the scale of calamities, and eventually prevent the holocausts completely.
8 Currently there are thirty-some planets in the great cosmos that are experiencing the End Time of the Third Epoch, a process that was started by our planet Earth. Persons of affinity who have righteous qi will be able to escape from this unprecedented holocaust.
9 Strong faith and persistence form the spiritual force for breaking through any tribulations. Based on this faith, members of this Church will be able to face any challenge and achieve all striving goals every step of the way.
