    On Taking Refuge

    " By taking refuge we make clear the direction we intend to follow. Taking refuge in the Buddha, we vow together with all beings to walk his path of wisdom and compassion;taking refuge in the Dharma, we vow to share the teachings and wisdom as boundless as the ocean; taking refuge in the Sangha, we vow to create harmony without hindrance.

    Lovely quote from a great book. Thank you, Shokai.

    In all forms of Buddhism I have practiced, I have found taking refuge to be one of the simplest and most moving acts of practice, reminding me of how I want to live.
