【Taking refuge】– The more sufferings you have, the more earnest your refuge
If you understand the principles and your body and mind concord accordingly, then how could you not end up going [to Pure Land] after much recitation [of Buddha’s name]? Right? Why would you be giving up the recollection [of Buddha] upon suffering? Impossible! If you give it up during suffering, then you fundamentally do not know what refuge is. If you understand what it is, then you certainly will not give it up in times of suffering. Not only will you not give it up, surely the more suffering you have, the better your recollection/recitation [of the Buddha/Buddha’s name].
