12 - Veneration of the True Doctrine
Furthermore, Subhūti, you should know that wheresoever this discourse is proclaimed, be even so little as four lines, that place should be venerated by the whole realms of gods, men, and titans, as though it were a Buddha shrine. How much more is this so in the case of one who is able to receive and retain the whole and read and recite it throughout!
Subhūti, you should know that such a one attains the highest and most wonderful truth. Wheresoever this sacred discourse may be found there should you comport yourself as though in the presence of Buddha and disciples worthy of honor.
