Old Monk the puppet encourages novice monks saying:
"They should make great resolve and become Buddhas soon"

"如果問你的話, 你為什麼要發大菩提心早成佛道呢?"
(Rev. Heng Sure asked the Old Monk, 
"If asking you, why did you make great resolve to become a Buddha soon?")





"You are supposed to leave the triple realm
It's like a burning house
And if you can speak Dharma for your mother
She can leave the burning house with you."
