【The Precepts of Refuge】 – Actual Refuge
Perhaps we may have some doubts and would say, “Yes, we have now all gone for refuge, how come we do not have these great merits?” Yes, we have gone for refuge in name, but in reality have we truly gone for refuge? This is the problem. That is why I have written this on the black board – when you go for refuge, you must obtain the substance (essence) of refuge. If you have truly gone for refuge, and you are…. if normally you can take refuge well, then to go to heaven after death would be something very simple, very easy to do. If you go for refuge to Amitabha Buddha and wholeheartedly go for refuge, you will be able to go to the Pure Land. To go to Pure Land means to transcend beyond cyclic existence. Ah! You will have transcended beyond cyclic existence. It is something indeed incredible. The vast merits of it…think about it, how can the three realms contain it?
