The Teaching on ‘Highest Excellence’

Just as a well-adorned face of naturally outstanding beauty and countenance gives people an evermore intense delight when they behold it in a mirror, so This Teaching, forever and always outstanding in its natural brilliance, gives a still more distinct satisfaction to the wise when its extensive and inner meaning is succinctly elucidated.

Like a venom antidote with foul smell yet sweet in taste and glorious in its benefits, This Teaching ought to be understood to have two facets: its literal facet and the enlightenment facet of its import.

The Ultimate Truth, by nature, expansive, tough and deep, is like a Supreme Monarch that is very hard to please; and yet also like a Monarch, once pleased, it is the bestower of of the treasures of the Highest Excellence.

Just as a priceless classic diamond jewel gives no satisfaction to the person who lacks the ability to differentiate between disparate types of jewels, This Teaching is wasted if unleashed on the unintelligent; the vice versa is true, each gives due satisfaction in the same way.
