In GM's speech today, he also clarified an important point regarding Disciplines!
Disciplines like Rulers, are Boundary Guides for all Cultivators, to not "Cross-over" to Extremes and stay in "Middle-Path"!
GM stressed these Disciplines are for the Individual's Self to observe in Cultivation!
May 2013, Taiwan Temple:- Just recalled that VM Lian Ning went off agitatedly, after failing to get me to follow him to meet Shi-mu.
He used his right hand and hit his left hand, saying loudly: Beware of Disciplines!
My reply, to his fast fading figure was: You understand Disciplines?

Now knows that My views of Disciplines are synonymous with GM's & Buddha's? :)
Do bear in mind that Buddha's Disciplines are not to be use to Threaten; Penalise; or Cause Hurt/harm to Any One!
Very Important to Listen only to your own Root Guru, and in my case, GM Lu!
