【Going for Refuge to the Three Jewels】– Where to go for refuge - Buddha
Other than Buddha, for all the other external paths, and the non-Buddhist teachings, if you truly and aptly reflect on this, then at that time, you will come to a conclusion: [one] must go for refuge. To whom will you go for refuge? The “place” you will go for refuge, should go for refuge, and can go for refuge is the Buddha! [You] Do not go to others for refuge, why? They are “not omniscient.” They are not the omniscient ones, who are unable to understand everything ultimately and completely, and cannot resolve everything. Well then, these types of persons are non-Buddhists. The tenets of the non-Buddhists, the tenets are their teachings, there are faults to them. Once there are faults, once there are faults, then it is not perfect. Because it’s not perfect, it is defiled. Since it is defiled, there is harm! Therefore, the “minds are ruined.” When the minds are defiled, [they] will not be able to see the correct and perfect Buddha.
