This vow weekend is an opportunity for those who are ready to commit themselves to the Refuge Vow or Bodhisattva Vow in a profound and beautiful retreat environment.
The Refuge Vow marks the decision to commit oneself wholeheartedly to the Buddhist path and to further one’s practice and training. It is the formal commitment to being a Buddhist, following the example of the Buddha Shakyamuni, his teachings (the dharma) and joining the community (sangha) of fellow practitioners.
The Bodhisattva Vow is further commitment to put others before oneself and to work wholeheartedly for their benefit. The basis of this vow is the aspiration to develop friendliness, compassion, and genuine insight through the practice of the six paramitas – generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, and prajna.
Both vows require prerequisites.
