【皈依 Taking refuge】佛之所以成为佛 The reason why Buddha attained Buddhahood

皈依 : 佛之所以成为佛

佛在任何情况之下,任何时候都在利益一切有情。而且佛,我们大家晓得,佛之所以成为佛,所谓「十力、四无所畏、十八不共法」。他的悲心是遍缘一切,没有一个遗漏,而且没有一点点的好恶差别;他智慧了解一切,能够帮助我们;而且他利益的状态是任运而且无间。那么所以我们不能受化,所以我们不能解决问题,在哪里?还是在我们自己身上。

【Taking refuge】- The reason why Buddha attained Buddhahood

Buddha helps all sentient beings under any circumstances and at all times. And Buddha, we all know that the reason Buddha has attained Buddhahood is because he has attained the “Ten powers, four fearlessness and eighteen distinctive characteristics.” His great compassion extends to all living beings without omitting anyone, and is impartial to all without differentiating the good and the bad. His wisdom understands all and he is able to help us. And the way he helps us is spontaneous and everlasting. So what is the reason that we are not able to transform ourselves and cannot resolve our problems? The problem still lies with us.
