And Daibai said:

    I'm one with this, this only.
    You, my disciples,
    Uphold it firmly –
    Now I can breathe my last.

Every master worth the name lives only for those
who can understand
this. There is no other reason
for an enlightened man to live – even for a single
moment more. He has arrived home, but he can
see many of his fellow travelers are still wandering
in darkness. It will be very unkind not to give them
a call...
