Quote: "If you do not know about a person and he is a stranger to you. How can you trust this man? He may be a good person but you cannot trust this man because you do not know him, right? Therefore, first you must know what are Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Then, you must know that if you ask for help from the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha - they can and they will help you."
