Okay, so now, now I will just, for those who are receiving the refuge, you know, I just want to explain a little bit. Okay?
When I first arrived in France, you know, I met many good people, still I do. But the difference was, back then when I arrived, you know, there was this mentality that you receive a refuge from this Rinpoche or this Lama. And, and then once you receive a one time of refuge vows you are not allowed to receive another refuge vow. And that was, that was quite upsetting, you know. Because you receive refuge vows every day, you know.
How can you practice Dharma without receiving a refuge vows? You know, when you’re doing your daily practice, you always start with a Buddha, Dharma, Sangha and the refuge, you know? If you can take a refuge to all the Buddha and Bodhisattva so many times, what makes you not take a refuge with a human being that represent the Buddhism? Right? So, that should be even more, you know? Not limited, you know? So I find that a huge misunderstanding. And so you should receive many refuge vows as you like, until you lose all your hair. [haha]
So you should have the mindset of receiving refuge vows as many as you like to have. Yeah. And then when it comes to the refuge to the Dharma, you know, willing to focus on the teachings of the Buddha, you know? Not just like some sort of a mythical misunderstanding, but rather stick to the teachings of the Lord Buddha, that sort of a mindset. And then when it comes to the Sangha, you know, always finding an inspiration, you know. To inspire yourself by the exemplary figures as well as to inspire others from your positive action and that is important.
Yeah. So, you know, you are more fortunate than me because you can practice and receive teachings from anybody, anywhere you want and you should use that freedom as well as continue to progress with your practice as well.
