Go forth, for the good of the many,
for the happiness of the many,
out of compassion for the world,
for the benefit, for the welfare,
for the gladness of holy and ordinary beings.
Let each of us go a different way
to share the Dharma that is beautiful in the beginning,
beautiful in the middle, and beautiful in the end.
Let us declare the holy life in its purity,
completely, both in word and in deed.
—Buddha Shakyamuni, Mahavagga, Vinaya Pitaka
