【Taking Refuge】 – Do I Believe in the Buddha？
So let us think about this a little more: Do you believe in Buddha? You do believe in him. If you do believe, what are the characteristics of the Buddha? He has resolved all his problems, and he knows how to help others resolve any problem, he also has great compassion to want to help everyone. Do we believe this? Yes we believe this! If we believe in it, then would I be an exception? Would he not help me? Does he not have great compassion? Do we believe in him? Further ask: does he not know how to help us? Do we believe in him? Then how come we have not been saved yet? Where is the problem? Nah, nah, nah, it’s this – the internal factor, you are still led by your afflictions!
