【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.  】
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.
