皈依 : 皈依的状态

【是故最初入佛弟子者,须由至心于三宝所受为大师等,】 

所以这一个就是最开始修学佛法的第一个条件——皈依,那么皈依了算是佛弟子。那么在目前我们能够做到,能够了解的这个皈依的体是什么?就是你至心于三宝接受他—这个才是大师;「等」字,那个才是正确的方法,这个才是共同修习的助伴。这一个状态,不是说听听、讲讲,而是从你内心深处一心一意皈投依靠,就这一点,就这一点。

【The Precepts of Refuge】 – The state of mind when going for refuge

【Thus, to initially be included among Buddhists you must uphold the three jewels as your teacher and so forth from the depths of your heart. 】

Therefore, the first criteria in learning Buddhism – take refuge.  Well then, after you have gone for refuge, you are considered a Buddhist.  So then for us now, what can we accomplish? What can we understand for this refuge substance?  It is that you must uphold the Three Jewels from the depths of your heart – These are truly the Teacher. "And so forth" means this is the correct method, and these are the companions who will practice together with you.  This state of mind is not something which you just hear and talk about but that it is one which you go for refuge and rely from the depths of your heart.  It is this point, this point.
