【The Precepts of Refuge】- To whom you tell your injustice
For the usual refuge, after the refuge, you are still unfocused. By then, do you understand why? Though you appear to be learning the Buddha’s teaching in terms of your physical behavior, but in reality, what are you learning? It has nothing to do with the Buddha. Now if you had followed the stages of the path and walked up step by step, indeed, every step becomes steadfast. Yes! It is because you have suffering, therefore you need to go for refuge. Since you want to go for refuge, you have found the objects of the refuge to be the Three Jewels. Now that this suffering has risen, at that moment, what comes to your mind? "Ah, this is suffering!" Then you wholeheartedly go to Him for refuge. Yes, after people have blamed you for some things, you feel a lot of suffering. By then where will you go to relate the injustice you have suffered? Who will you complain to, you would complain to the Buddha [and tell him the injustice you have encountered], it is very simple! Who will you complain to? You will complain to the Teachings, complain to the Sangha community. I am only afraid that you do not tell. If you do tell, you will be right!
