皈依: 为什么要皈依

知道什么?知道了要受无边的大苦,那个时候你简直是拼命逃,一定要拼命逃。我想我们没有一个人例外的,没有一个人例外的。说外面现在这些强盗跑得来,他吃人的这强盗跑得来,要跑进来啊,抓到我们就拿起来杀了就吃了,那我们拼命逃都来不及,没有一个人例外。现在实际上的状态就是如此,这个就是我们真正要皈依的原因。

【Taking Refuge】– Why do we need to take refuge

What do we know? We know that we will have to bear immeasurable great sufferings. At this time, you will desperately try to escape, you will certainly run away. I think no one is an exception to this, no one is an exception. It’s as if there are some bandits out there; these bandits, who are cannibals, are about to come here, running in soon. As soon as they catch us, they will seize, kill, and eat. Thus, we will desperately try to escape, there will not be enough time to lose. No one would be an exception. Actually, our current true situation is just like this, making it the reason for us to go for refuge.
