【皈依 Taking refuge】佛的大悲 The great compassion of Buddha

皈依 : 佛的大悲

我们众生所以为众生,为什么?为烦恼所绑住,所以我们不得自在。佛也有一样东西不得自在的,什么呀?大悲绑住了,所以「缚」。这个地方说明什么?佛自己虽然解决了一切问题,但是他还忙,忙的什么?他因为他大悲心,一天到晚帮我们,所以这个就是佛跟我们不同的地方。

【Taking refuge】- The great compassion of Buddha

The reason why we are ordinary living beings, what is it? It is that we are tied down by our afflictions. So we are not free from afflictions. Buddha is also not free from one thing. What is that? He is tied down by his great compassion and therefore he is “bound.” So what does this section tell us? Though Buddha has resolved all his problems, he is still busy. What is he busy with? Due to his great compassion, he helps us all the time. This is the difference between Buddha and us.
