【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.
