皈依 :谁教我避开痛苦?

【如《集法句》云:「能断有箭道,我教示尔等,如来是大师,尔等应须行。」】

欸,现在就告诉这个道理了,所以经上面现证成,然后解释这个道理。经上面怎么说?《集法句》上面,说这个真正能够断除痛苦的「有箭道」——箭,就是伤害我们——真正能够避开伤害我们痛苦的这个道路,现在我告诉你啊,是谁?那这个是如来,「如来是大师」,这真正的一个大师,他可以告诉你怎么解决这个问题的。「尔等应须行」,你们应该跟从着他,听着他、照着他去做嘛,那个问题就可以解决了。所以

【佛是归依的大师,】

真正的老师。

【The Precepts of refuge】- Who taught me how to avoid suffering?

 【Reply: The Collection of Indicative Verses states:359

I, the Tathagata, the Teacher,
Reveal to you
The path that stops the pains of existence;
You must follow it. [158] 】

Aye, now here it explains the principle.  Therefore, the scriptures are cited first for proof, and the principles are then explained.  What does the scripture say?   In the Collection of Indicative Verses, it says that what truly can stop suffering - "the path that stops the pains of [the arrow of] cyclic existence.", the “arrow” is what harms us.  For the real path which can help us avoid this suffering, now “I” reveal it to you,  who is [revealing] this?  It is the Tathagata, "the Tathagata, the Teacher."  The real Teacher.  He can tell you how to solve your problems.  "You must follow it."  You should follow him, listen to him, and practice according to his instructions, then your problems will be resolved.  Therefore, 

【Thus, the Buddha is the one who teaches refuge,  】

The real teacher.
