— 古德

Relying on Buddhist texts to explain their meanings [speculatively and superficially, without realising their actual, deeper and fuller implications, beyond that worded], the three periods’ Buddhas [of the past, present and future], will have grievances [as this will be wrong. Yet, if] departing from a sūtra by one word, this is then the same as what demons speak, [as it might become the direct opposite of what the Buddhas meant, or the beginning of gradual deviation, to be far away from what they truly taught].
