【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.
