皈依 : 人与非人不能为难

你皈依了三宝以后,他马上就有护法神来护持你。哦,说我们说:「那么非人不能为难,人怎么皈依了以后不能为难?我们就看见很多事实,皈依了以后,人还来为难我啊!」这一点要解释一下,这一点要解释一下。这个误会,我们了解佛法里面告诉我们一切都是因果缘起的法则,你真实地了解,人没有一个人能害你,只有你自己!真正能害你的是什么?就是你的无明,你不了解这个无明的行相,跟着境界转了,害了,害了!所以假定你了解了一切因果法则,人家来害你,欸,那个时候你就想想看,他为什么害你呀?如果说你有了伤害他的原因,他害你,当然嘛,应该的,还啦!就是刚才说这个道理。所以你正确地了解的话,的的确确——而这个唯一的办法,靠什么?靠皈依三宝,如理如量地了解这个道理,问题就解决了,这是非常重要的一个概念。当然啦!人都不能为难你,何况是非人?三界之内的的确确人是最强。

【The Precepts of refuge】-  Humans and non-humans cannot hinder

After you have gone for refuge to the Three Jewels, there will immediately be Dharma protectors to come support you.  Oh, so we say, "So the non-humans cannot hinder you but how can people not hinder you after refuge is taken?  It is an observable fact to us that, after I have gone for refuge, people still give me a hard time!"  With this point, I need to explain a little.  I need to explain this a little.  This is a misunderstanding.  We should understand that Buddhism tells us that everything operates under the law of cause and effect, dependent-arising.  Once you truly understand this, no one can harm you, only yourself!  What can truly harm you?  Your ignorance.  You do not understand the subjective aspects of ignorance and you pursue the sensory object.  Then it is bad, it is bad!  Therefore, if you understand that everything operates under the law of cause and effect, then when others harm you, ah, that is when you should think about why does he harm you?  If there was a cause such that you had hurt him before, now that he harms you, of course, it is due to happen to you, so you have paid the debt!  This is the principle spoken earlier.  If you correctly understand the situation, then certainly - the only method, what would it depend on?  It depends on refuge to the Three Jewels, and your correct and adequate amount of understanding of the principle.  Then the issue will be resolved.  This is a very important concept.  Of course!  If you cannot even be thwarted by human’s hindrances, needless to say about non-humans’ hindrances.  In all of the three worlds, truly, humans are the strongest.
