【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.
