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