皈依 :见到佛像的心情(I)

我们跑到大殿佛堂的时候,什么心情?马上就感觉得出来。那个地方是佛,假定说这一点,我们有了这个认识的话,你那时候就会说,一进去马上感觉到:啊!到了佛跟前了!到了佛跟前了。不要小看这个,不要小看这个哦!在我们本论一开头的时候,就告诉我们几件事情,说我们修学佛法的时候,「断三过,具六想」,具六想当中第一个是什么想?我们自己在病当中,什么病?无明大病,粗的地方就是贪、嗔、痴。由于这个而造业,然后轮转生死之苦,现在救我们的—佛。佛是无所不在,那么我们为什么见不到?就是我们的业障碍。

【Taking refuge】- The attitude when seeing images of Buddha (I)

When we enter the main shrine, how do we feel? You will immediately feel it. That is where Buddha is. If we have an understanding of this point, then at that time, you will feel this immediately as you enter: Ah! I am in front of the Buddha! I am in front of the Buddha! Do not underestimate this! From the beginning of this treatise, it tells us a few things. It says that when we cultivate the teachings, [we should] “eliminate the three faults of the vessel and rely on the six ideas.” What is the first idea within the six ideas? We are struck with sickness. What sickness? The great sickness of ignorance. [Looking at it] from a coarse perspective, it would be attachment, hostility and ignorance. It is because of this that we create karma and then continue the pain of rebirth. Currently the one who saves us - the Buddha. Buddha is everywhere. Well then why can't we see Him?  That is because of our karmic obstacle.
