皈依 :任至何事,不舍皈依

【身命受用,定当舍离,若为此故,弃舍三宝,则一切生辗转受苦,故任至何事,不舍归依。】

我们所以舍不得的话,总有困难,现在最严重,哪怕那个身命,他真正皈依的人,哪怕身命可以舍掉,皈依不舍。为什么呀?因为你那个身命以及眼前的受用,就算是你现在为了保护,舍掉了皈依,对不起,最后你能不能保护它?最后还是死欸!很多人没有皈依的人,他没有长寿欸,这很明白嘛,到时候照样地死。于是这样的话,你不就冤枉了吗?不是冤枉了吗?所以假定说,为了保护这个本来就要死的、本来就要弃舍的,而弃舍的话,太可惜啦,太可惜啦!所以你为了这个而弃舍三宝的话,那完了。「一切生中辗转受苦」。所以在任何情况之下,绝对不要舍弃,绝对不要舍弃。

【The Precepts of Refuge】– Under any circumstance, do not forsake refuge

【Inevitably you will lose your body, life, and resources. But, if you forsake the three jewels for the sake of these, you will suffer continually throughout many lives. Thus, you should repeatedly vow that whatever happens you will not forsake your refuge…】

The reason why we are unable to let go, there is always difficulty.  Now, the most critical, even your life, for those who truly go for refuge, even at the cost of his life, he will not forsake refuge.  Why?  This is because your life and the resources that you have now, even if you safeguard it now, and forsake refuge, sorry, in the end can you really safeguard it?  You will still die in the end!  There are many who have not gone for refuge, and they did not live a long life, this is very clear.  When the time comes, [we] still have to die.  Thus in this case, you would have done it [forsake the refuge] for nothing?  You would have done it for nothing?  Therefore, if you are trying to protect what will eventually die, what you will have to give up anyway, and for this you forsake [refuge], that is a pity, a pity!  Therefore, if for this you choose to forsake the Three Jewels, then it is over.  "You will suffer continually throughout many lives."  So, under any circumstance, absolutely do not forsake [refuge], absolutely do not forsake it.
