皈依 : 实际的皈依

我们容或有怀疑说:「是啊,我们都皈依了,我们怎么好像没有这么大的福报啊?」是,我们名字上面说是皈依了,真实皈依了没有?这个大成问题。所以我在黑板上写了一个——皈依也要得皈依之体。假定你真正的皈依做到了,而你现在又是…… 平常你皈依做到了,你生天,这是很简单的事情,很容易的事情。如果说你皈依是皈依阿弥陀佛,一心皈投的话,你可以往生极乐世界;往生极乐世界根本就是超脱三界轮回,啊!这个是超脱轮回,是不得了的事情。这个福之大,你想想看,这个三千大千世界怎么能容纳?

【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?
