Refuge Vow Class
with Marian Judith Broadus
April 16 / 7:00 PM - April 30 / 9:00 PM
To take refuge is to commit oneself to the Buddhist path of awakening. We take refuge in the Buddha as an example, the dharma as truth, and the sangha as a community of fellow practitioners.
It is recommended that those considering taking refuge vows meet the following criteria:
1. A regular sitting practice for at least six months prior to taking vows.
2. An ongoing relationship with a meditation instructor (this may be established at this time).
3. One should have a clear understanding of the meaning of taking refuge, and should have taken some classes about the Buddhist path.
