Taking Refuge

By H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche

The One Hundred and Fifty Verses of Praise says:

Take refuge in whomever
Has absolutely no shortcomings,
Absolutely no blindness, and in whom resides
Every aspect of all good qualities.
When you think of this,
Respect those who praise him
And abide by his teachings.

In other words, when you think of how to distinguish between what should be your refuge, and what should not, you will want to take refuge in the Buddha, the teacher of Buddhism, in his teachings, and in those who abide by his teachings. The average worldly person seeks refuge in worldly creatures – spirit kings, gods, nagas, spirits, and so forth. Non-Buddhists seek refuge in Brahma, Indra etc. but these themselves are beings in samsara so they are not fitting refuges.

Who then is a fitting refuge? From The Seventy Verses on Taking Refuge:

Buddha, Dharma, Sangha
Are the refuge for seekers of liberation.

That is, the only refuge is the Three Jewels: Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. But if we do not identify these three properly, we will not take refuge purely. We are not critical and so pretend to be Mahayana knowledge- bearers, yet when things go wrong, sickness comes and so forth, or when we have some important work to do, we seek refuge in worldly Dharma protectors, in spirit kings, local gods etc: we perform smoke purifications or carry wood talismans under our armpits; we rush off to the shrine of any deity. All this external activity indicates our inner state. Buddhists should entrust themselves to the Three Jewels. We may have actually gained admittance to a Monastery, but we do not even qualify to be Buddhists, let alone Mahayana knowledge-bearers.

Nagas, spirit kings, and others do not have these three qualities: omniscience, love and ability. They don’t even know when they are going to die. Normally they are categorised as animals or hungry ghosts, and their rebirths are inferior to ours. There is no worse method we could use than to rely on them. What means could be worse than to seek refuge in them? So far from protecting us from samsara and the sufferings of the lower realms, or even giving us a little temporary help, they may do us great harm instead. Here is a story to illustrate this. A man with a goitre once went to a place haunted by flesh-eating spirits. A tax in flesh that these spirits paid to other creatures was due, so the spirits removed the man’s goitre. Another man with a goitre went to them and took refuge in them hoping for the same result, but the spirits did not destroy his goitre – they made it larger. Similarly, worldly gods and evil spirits are sometimes helpful, sometimes harmful; they can never be trusted.

Non-Buddhists make Brahma, Indra, Shiva, and so forth, their refuge. This is an improvement on the above, yet those gods are still not liberated from samsara and the lower realms so they cannot protect other beings. But Buddha, the teacher of Buddhists is not like these. Praise to the Praiseworthy says:

You proclaimed, ‘I am a friend
To you who are without protection’.
Your great compassion embraces all beings,
Teacher, you have great compassion,
You have love; you act by your love.
You are diligent, you are not lazy.
Who else could be like you?
You are the protector of all sentient beings;
You are a kind relative to all.

According to that section [the Buddha] has three magnificent qualities: omniscience, love and ability. Not only do spirit kings, evil spirits and so forth not have even a portion of these good qualities, but also the sum of the good qualities of worldly refuges, gods, nagas, and the like, cannot rival even the good qualities of a single Shravaka Stream Enterer.

Buddha is the ultimate refuge because he has taken the two benefits [benefit for self and for others] to their most developed state. Our teacher has eliminated all faults and possesses all good qualities.

Simply put, the ultimate jewel of Buddha is assumed to be the two dharmakayas, or ‘truth bodies’; the relative jewel of Buddha, the two physical kayas [the sambhogakaya, or ‘enjoyment body’, and nirmanakaya, or ’emanation body’].

The jewel of Dharma is as follows. The ultimate jewel of Dharma is anything that comes under the truth of cessation or the truth of the path – these are the [two] purifying truths [in contrast to the two truths of suffering and the origin of suffering] in the mind-streams of Aryas. As a guide,- we take the ‘truth of cessation’ partly to mean a freedom from [or the ‘cessation’ of some particular obscuration, this freedom being a function of a particular unhindered path. The ‘truth of the path’ is taken to be the means for Aryas to achieve these cessations and realisations in their mindstreams. People who have not studied the classics and who think at a lower level may instead identify the three scopes of the Lam Rim as a rough approximation for the ultimate jewel of Dharma.

Such things as the twelve divisions of Scripture are the generally accepted idea of the jewel of Dharma.

The jewel of Sangha is as follows. The ultimate jewel of Sangha are Aryas who have any of the eight good qualities of the liberated mind.

A group of four ordinary beings holding the monk’s full ordination vows is the generally accepted idea of the jewel of Sangha. If we help or harm these beings we will receive virtuous or non-virtuous karmic results in relation to the Sangha.

One doesn’t need all three of these refuges in order to be protected from some types of danger; each of the Three Jewels can protect one. Once a man in Dokham petitioned Avalokiteshvara while he was being dragged off by a tiger. The tiger immediately put him down and the man was freed from all danger.

After Purna became ordained and gained arhatship, some relatives and merchants went to sea to obtain choice sandalwood, but their boat began to disintegrate. The relatives petitioned the Arhat Purna [in their prayers] and were saved from the waters.

The king of nagas caused a rain of weapons to fall on King Prasenajit; Maudgalyayana turned it into a rain of flowers.

However, all Three Jewels are needed to protect one completely from samsara and the lower realms. To cure a patient of a severe illness, three things are needed: a doctor, medicine, and nurses. Similarly, in order to be freed from the serious illnesses of the sufferings of samsara and the lower realms, the danger of the peace [of Hinayana Arhats], or [samsaric] existence, one definitely needs all these: the Buddha, the teacher of the liberating path, who is like the doctor; the Dharma, the liberating path of the three scopes, which is like the medicine; and the Sangha, the friends of the Dharma practitioners, who are like the nurses. So, these three are things to take refuge in.

This teaching is an excerpt from Liberation in the Palm of your Hand by H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Read up here what other lamas expressed about Kyabje Pabongka.

There is a famous story of how Heruka actually appeared to Pabongka when he visited Cimburi in Tibet, where there is an image of Heruka. This is where the Blood drinker’s mountains are and this name refers to Heruka – Drinker of Blood. Apparently, Pabongka went to this place three times during his lifetime. When he first went there, this image spoke to him, opened its mouth and a tremendous amount of nectar came out. Pabongka collected the nectar from the mouth of Heruka while in the presence of sixty or seventy people. This nectar was then made into nectar pills. The Gelugpa’s current nectar pills originate from there. It is also stated that this very same cave in Cimburi where Pabongka received the nectar from the Heruka image was the place where Heruka promised him the following: “From now on, for the next seven generations, whoever practices my teaching, I will protect and help.”

 


 

The Contents of the Eleven-Volume Lhasa Edition of Phabongkha’s Collected Works, Together with the Contents of the Twelfth Volume as Found in the Potala Collection

His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche has eleven volumes of writings that are highly sought after and very much used till the present day. Very few works by teachers in Tibet become classics within their lifetime, but Pabongka Rinpoche’s writings did become classics.

For the sake of brevity, the titles listed below follow those given in the contents pages at the beginning of each volume in the set (phabong kha. khyab bdag rdo rje ‘chang pha bong kha pa dpal bzang po’I gsung ‘bum (11 vols.). Lhasa: s.n., 199-.) and those listed by the TBRC [W3834]. As Vol. 11 is a single work, the full title of the text is given.

Preference has been given for the TBRC’s listing as it is easily accessible and often more extensive, especially as Vol. 10, for example, has no printed listing of contents. Any important discrepancies between the order and contents of the TBRC’s listings and those of the contents pages of the Lhasa edition volumes, as well as the catalogue to the Potala edition are noted in square brackets.

In several cases the bibliographical titles have been expanded, usually by incorporating sections of the full headings as presented on the title pages of the individual works, with the additions in question also enclosed in square brackets. The contents of the twelfth volume are also listed following the presentation given in the catalogue to the Potala’s edition.

  1. Samfoonheei on Oct 12, 2018 at 11:42 am

    A very profound teachings and details explanation for me to learn and I will be reading it from time to time. To be free of samsara and the three lower realms , we are to seek refuge in the Three Jewels….. Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this important teachings.

  2. Stella Cheang on Jun 1, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this important teaching on why we should take refuge in the Three Jewels. Only the Three Jewels and the Guru who teaches us the Dharma has omnisciences, love and ability. They hand us the path to enlightenment by showing us and teaching us the steps or ways to transform ourselves and free ourselves from suffering.

    However, out of our ignorance and keenest to get immediate gratification, we will unwittedly take refuge in spirits or other unseen beings, thinking they might grant us what we want. It actually reflects our worldly states of mind, only wanting worldly pleasures without leaving our comfort zone.

    I pray for all who had taken refuge or about to take refuge to have the tenacity to follow the path of the Buddha all the way.

  3. pema thrinley on Sep 9, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    Thank you, kyab sum choe. Worth of everything needed to take refuge.

  4. Lester on Jun 6, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, this is a very profound teaching. I think refuge ceremonies have to include extensive meditation session on the development of faith in Triple Gems. _/\_

  5. wanwaimeng on Oct 20, 2011 at 2:33 am

    We should only take refuge in something that can benefit us short term and long term. If something is unreliable like a particular type of insurance why rely on something unreliable. Its no insurance at all.
    The stories mentioned above show how refuge can really save us.

  6. Steve Tobias on Oct 18, 2011 at 2:35 am

    Thank you very much Rinpoche. It’s very helpful for myself to reflect on the basis of refuge and the vows, and HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche gives a very clear and detailed explanation.

  7. tenzin llhamo on Oct 17, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the explanations in the above post. I am very thankful to have taken refuge vows from Rinpoche and I will always remind myself to refrain myself in doing anything opposite of my vows. I will always rely on the ‘doctors, nurses and medicines’.
    May we never be separated from the perfect Gurus from now until we gain liberation.

  8. Lim Han Nee on Oct 17, 2011 at 7:55 am

    The great Master Pabongka Rinpoche shows us very clearly and in no uncertain terms (in the Lamrim) that there is only one refuge we can seek if we wish to be free of samsara and the three lower realms. That Refuge is the Three Jewels – the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.

    Other sources of refuge like samsaric gods, nagas and spirit kings(that many still mistakenly seek) are still within the realms of samsara and are themselves subject to uncontrolled death and rebirth. They do not possess the qualities of the Buddha, ie, omniscience, love and ability So how can they be reliable sources of refuge?

    We all suffer from the terrible disease of mental afflictions and the three poisons. The only medicine that can cure us is the Dharma. The only doctor who can correctly diagnose our disease and prescribe the right medicine is the Buddha. The Sangha is the nurse that helps us, through advice and support, to take the medicine and so be healed of the three poisons and gain liberation from suffering and samsara.

    Sad to say, if we don’t take the medicine(as is the case with most of us), we will never be cured and be liberated from suffering and from samsara.

    The future of the country lies with the children and schools education. Their quality and personality will determine the kind of destiny that leads the nation. The countries which utilize their youth in the right direction are more developed. The youth will be the future leaders of their country and are role models to emulate in the future. With the biggest ever global school rankings have been published, Asian countries were in the top five places. Wow…Singapore ranked top list on maths and science but too bad Malaysia ranked 51. Education plays an important part in the country development. The authorities concerned are trying to ensure equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Every child has the fundamental right to quality education. With higher quality of education, it will benefits the entire country as well as it has been shown to increase economic growth and stability. Interesting to see school rankings throughout the world and with these rankings those of the weaker ones could do more to improve their education system or see what can be done.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing even though its an old post , good to know about it.

    As to these days millions of marine lives such as fish, seabirds, sea turtles, and marine mammals at risk. The main reasons behind this critical situation is tons of plastic ends up in the ocean each year. Fish, seabirds, sea turtles, and marine mammals can become entangled in or ingest plastic debris, causing suffocation, starvation, and drowning. Well….unless something is done , it has been predicted there could be more plastic in the sea than fish in no time. The numerous of plastic scraps dumped into seas , rivers is worrisome. The impacts include fatalities as a result of ingestion, starvation, suffocation, infection, drowning, and entanglement. The best way is to cut the production and stop using plastic bags, food container straws folks and spoon usage. There must be a restrictions on the use of plastics, which we as consumers need to do something about it. Its the most severe environmental issues we are facing today, which is the overproduction and irresponsible disposal of plastic waste. As fish stocks and coral reefs die off, millions of people who depend on the ocean are at risk of losing their only source of income as well. The impacts include fatalities as a result of ingestion, starvation, suffocation, infection, drowning, and entanglement. Hope more and more people gets to the bottom of it working towards a more clean and healthy environment.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Mindfulness meditation a Buddhist religious practice is promoted by schools in Australia and United kingdom. Meditation is used to rest the mind, body , has many mental, physical, and spiritual benefits. According to the latest studies, meditation should be included in the school curriculum. It has proven that students who meditate perform better in school. They can handle academic stress more efficiently. That’s wonderful. Research has linked meditation to a rise in student’s IQ levels, improved mental function, and higher grades. Mindfulness meditation a Buddhist religious practice is promoted by schools in Australia and England. A good approach indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tibetan Resistance group Chushi Gangdruk reveals how Dalai Lama escaped in 1959

    In the early 1950s, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden took trance of the famous Panglung Oracle and advised a group of Tibetans to form a guerrilla fighting group. Later, in 1959, they famously escorted His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama on his historic escape to India. After ensuring that His Holiness was safely in exile, they turned around and went back into Tibet where they continued to stave off Chinese incursions for many years. This guerrilla group came to be known as Chushi Gangdruk (meaning ‘Four Rivers, Six Ranges’) and the men in this group, mostly from the Kham region of eastern Tibet, came together and trained for many years before that fateful escape in 1959.

    Why aren’t the monasteries helping the drought?

    So I was saddened when I came across an article today explaining that these Tibetan settlements in South India have been severely affected by a regional drought. I was sad not only because the people are suffering but how come it seems nothing has been done about it, and the people have been allowed to suffer?

    This article really caught my attention as I always prefer to seek natural remedies to regulate and heal my body sickness. Secondly they are safe and can be prepared by our own, and with a little side effect.

    All I know the sour taste of the fruits juice but didn’t know the miracle healing fruits that has great benefits and nutritional. Most importantly I got to know it is a great fruit to boost our immune system, prevent and it helps to maintain a healthy life. I also was surprise to know this fruit actually helps efficient communication between various nerves in the body for muscle movements.

    Wonderful Article, Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this very beneficial information .

    It is very nice to see Buddhism is starting to flourish and grow in China again. Buddhism has spread to China at least 2200 years ago. Chinese culture including art, politics, literature, philosophy, medicine and material culture are very much influenced by Buddhism.

    The most prosperous periods in China were the periods when Buddhism was widely practised. For examples, the Tang Dynasty and Qing Dynasty during the Qianlong and Kangxi reign.

    The establishment of the Nalanda University shows that China sees the good values of Buddhism. Buddhism promotes respect, tolerance and harmony. With a big population like China, these values are very important in order to maintain the stability of the country.

    Chakrasamvara is the principal deity of the most important Sanskrit Tantra text of the Anuttarayoga Wisdom (mother) classification of the Vajrayana Buddhist Tradition. Chakrasamvara can also be included amongst the most popular deities in Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. His purpose and function in the Buddhist Vajrayana religious system is as a model for meditation practice employed by serious Tantric practitioners. There is a vast collection of written texts and literature on the subject of Chakrasamvara. The original source material is written in the Indian Sanskrit language with dozens of Sanskrit commentaries, and hundreds of later Tibetan commentaries exist, including ritual texts, dance performance instruction, and meditation manuals, all written in the Tibetan language.

    This form of the deity is known as Sahaja Heruka Chakrasamvara. He appears in a simplified form with only one face and two arms embracing the consort Vajrayogini. In some ritual texts she is referred to as Vajra Varahi; however, her most common name is Vajrayogini, or Vajra Dakini. The colour of Chakrasamvara is blue and Vajrayogini is red. Their general mood and appearance is semi-peaceful and semi-wrathful.

    In the world we are living in now, we are conditioned to believe the acquisition of wealth and possessions is the objective of our lives. When we turn on the TV and radio, log on to the internet, or read magazines and the newspaper, advertisements that encourage spending and buying jumps right into our face. Our society defines success by looking at how much wealth and material possessions we have accumulated. The more we have, the more successful we are. In order to conform to our society’s rules, we spend our time and effort working to acquire as much as possible. However, some of us have decided to live a lifestyle that goes against what society expects of us. Instead of accumulating more material possessions, we get rid of what we don’t need and refrain from getting more.

    Many people have misconceptions about the minimalist lifestyle. They think that the minimalist lifestyle is about retreating into the woods or places far away from modern amenities. This may be what some minimalists are doing, but not all minimalists practice the lifestyle to this extent. The minimalist lifestyle is about living with less and only with what we need, not what we want. In fact, the concept of minimalism is not new; spiritual practitioners such as monks and nuns are the very early adopters of this concept. They have realized the acquisition or accumulation of wealth and material possessions is a distraction to genuine contentment and happiness. Therefore, they choose to live a simple life, abstaining from unnecessary material possessions and focus on the spiritual practice for real happiness.

    Most people in the city are living in apartments with small balconies or houses without a backyard. Some don’t even have a balcony and the space is very limited. Without a backyard, can we still grow vegetables? With container gardening, the answer is yes. It is actually more fun, more practical and easier to grow vegetables in containers. Container gardening refers to growing vegetables, flowers or plants in pots or containers when space is an issue. If we know how to pick the right plants, we will be able to create a vegetable garden with a bountiful harvest, no matter our space constraints.

    There are big advantages to container gardening:

    – It saves water.
    – Sunlight is not a problem as pots or containers can be moved easily when the sun is too strong or when sunlight is needed.
    – There are fewer pest issues.
    – There are fewer or no soil-borne issues such as fungus and bacteria.
    – Less weeding work is needed.
    – It’s low maintenance.

    Mati (马蹄) Temple, also known as Horse Hoof Temple, is located deep in the heart of Gansu (甘肃) province in northwestern China. It is a magnificent Buddhist temple complex consisting of a large group of caves, divided into seven smaller groups, that stretches up to 30 kilometres (18.64 miles) long. Mati Temple was first built in the Jin (晋) Dynasty, with the first cave dug about 1,600 years ago by a man named Guo and his disciples. It was originally a school and later it was converted to a temple when the Buddha statues were made.

    The unique name of the temple derives from a legend that a Long Ma (Chinese Pegasus) descended from the heavens and left a hoof print on the place where the temple was established. The legendary hoof print is preserved and visible up to this day in the Mati Hall in Puguang (普光) Temple. Mati Temple, together with Mogao (莫高) Grottoes in Dunhuang (敦煌) and Yulin (榆林) Grottoes in Anxi (安西), is regarded as one of the Three Artistic Treasured Grottoes of Hexi Buddha Holy Land.

    Neerja Bhanot an Indian flight attendant was truly a selfless heroine. As the head purser for the airline she had saved passengers on the fateful flight Pan Am Flight 73. The plane had been hijacked by terrorists during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan. There were 380 passengers and 13 crew on board the aircraft. All but 22 survived, and much of the credit goes to Neerja quick action, who died near the end of the standoff. She was brave and selfless, died heroically remembered by many till today. She received India’s highest civilian award and a special courage award by the US Department for her bravery. Her bravery were then made into a film entitled “Neerja” was released, portraying her heroic life. Interesting read.

    Came across this old post , sad cannot imagine that about 6 elderly Singaporeans die alone each month. When these elderly die, they were either without their relatives near them or left alone. How ever busy our lives is we should not leave our old parents or relatives alone. Spending time with them and never neglect them. As one of these days we too will be old. Its because of them , we are here today. We should somehow cherished and care for them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
