【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.
