皈依 : 涅槃寂灭从皈依起

这个究竟解脱一切问题的最开始,从哪里开始?皈依开始,皈依开始。现在这个道理就很清楚、很明白了,因为随时我们体验到:为什么要皈依?因为了解世间是苦。所以涅槃是什么?苦的究竟寂灭位嘛,就这么清楚,如此因就感得如此果啊!由于你这样的内心这样的一个意乐,内心认识这个好乐,然后呢你一步一步努力要去获得,获得嘛当然你照着去做,照着去做就是受的律仪,这个一切律仪。由于受了这个律仪,律仪的戒体得到了,这个戒体就是根本,从这个根本上面,所以五分法身戒为基础,戒而得定、而得慧、而解脱、解脱知见,这样来的。这个次第这么清楚,这么个好啊!这么个好!所以想想看这个皈依的福,的的确确无法衡量地大呀!

 【The Precepts of Refuge】 –  nirvana starts from taking refuge  

The very beginning to ultimately solving all problems starts where?  It starts with refuge, starts with refuge.  Now this principle is very plain, very clear because we can feel this ourselves at anytime; why do we go for refuge?  This is because we know that the world is full of suffering.  Therefore, what is nirvana?  It is the ultimate cessation of suffering.  It is that clear.  With such cause, you will obtain such fruit!  Through this motivation in your mind, you recognize this zealous desire in your mind, and then you will strive step by step to obtain it.  In order to obtain it, you must act accordingly.  To act accordingly means to uphold the vows, all the vows.  As you have received the vows, you have obtained the substance of the vows.  The substance of the vows is the basis.  From this basis, therefore, the foundation to the five attributes of the wisdom body (dharmakaya) is the vows.  Through the vows you obtain concentration, then wisdom and then liberation.  The views of liberation is obtained this way.  The order is so clear, so excellent!  It is so excellent!  Therefore, think about the merits obtained through refuge, it is certainly immeasurable!
