【Taking refuge】- Wholeheartedly take refuge in Buddha
When you start to think of how we are suffering immensely in this cyclic existence, and then, how perfect the Buddha is, [this will show that] he is indeed the one who deserves our utmost admiration, the one who deserves to be our role model. Further, he is continuously helping us which makes him worthy of our refuge and reliance. [With such contemplation,] you can’t help it but naturally develop the attitude of really wanting to go for refuge and rely on Buddha. Then, when you think of his many good qualities, your desire for refuge will progressively increase, become purer and closer to perfection.
