A Buddhist Refuge


Refuge in the Buddha means: to incline towards enlightenment; to realise the Buddha-nature of one’s own mind.

Refuge in the Dharma means: to tread the path; to live in a straightforward mindful way, free from all defilement; to live in accord with one’s Buddha-nature.

Refuge in the Sangha means: to adopt the way of the wise, to act skilfully; to abandon the way of the foolish whose acts are unskilful.
