【The Precepts of Refuge】 – Truly take refuge and the karmic obstacles will gradually be cleared away
Conversely, when suffering arises, if you can take refuge, then what will gradually happen to this suffering? It will reduce because this is karma! As you have truly taken refuge and come to know what is correct to do, this karmic obstacle will then gradually be cleared away. Thus, this suffering will gradually be alleviated. All of this begins with refuge and the reason you go for refuge is exactly this. Thus, if you encounter suffering and choose to forsake refuge, then how can your refuge be counted as a [real] refuge?
