      Friends:

      Where does Faith and Confidence Lead?

      The Blessed Buddha once said:
      Bhikkhus, the well explained Dhamma is clear, open, evident,
      and free of patchwork. In this very clear, open, evident, and
      unstitched Dhamma, those who are Dhamma-followers or are
      Faith-followers are all headed for Enlightenment...
      Bhikkhus, the well explained Dhamma is clear, open, evident,
      and free of patchwork. In this very clear, open, evident, and
      unstitched Dhamma, those who have enough faith in me, and
      enough devotion for me, are all headed for Divine Existence...

      The Noble Dhamma-follower is a Noble Person whose main quality
      is Understanding. He who understands that all constructions are
      impersonal & lacking self, by thus gaining the ability of wisdom,
      he is at the moment of Stream-Entrance a Dhamma-devotee...

      The Noble Faith-follower is a Noble Person whose main quality
      is Conviction. He who is filled with determination and dedication,
      who considers all constructions as impermanent & lacking stability,
      by thus gaining the ability of faith, he is at the path moment of
      Stream-Entrance a Faith-devotee...
