【The Precepts of Refuge】- Respect the teaching jewel
Well then regarding the teaching jewel, we would treat it the same way, even if there are only four words. He said four words but actually, this is true even if there is only one word, “Buddha,” even the word “Dharma,” or the word, “Sangha”, under any circumstances, do not be disrespectful, do not become disrespectful. Then in general, when we take care of anything, with the scrolls of scriptures…etc, treat them “as though they were the teaching jewel itself.” This is referring to an object which has a form [that which you can see.] Actually, we should treat things that are formless as such too. Therefore, this is why I tell everyone here, that in our everyday life, we should absolutely not belittle the instruction of teachings, should absolutely not belittle this. You absolutely need to pay attention to this. You should always carry an attitude of respect in your mind.
