“Many people honored the elder as a saint. If you were critical of him and accused him of being a sorcerer, he would answer them with his full self-assessment. “I’m not a saint or a sorcerer. I’m a sinful human being who tries to struggle. I look at myself as a speck of dust in the universe. I wish it were at least a clean speck!””
