The Three Jewels Refuge Vow class
with Margaret Beilharz & Didier Gohler
September 9 / 7:00 PM - September 23 / 8:30 PM
This program explores what it means to take refuge in the three jewels and to become a Buddhist. It is open to anyone who is curious and interested in exploring the topic of refuge, including those who are not at the point of making a formal commitment. However, it is an essential step for those who are preparing to take refuge.
The refuge vow marks the decision to commit oneself wholeheartedly to the Buddhist path and to further one's parctice and training. It is a formal commitment to being a Buddhist, following the example of Buddha Shakyamuni, his teachings (the dharma), and joining the community (sangha) of fellow practitioners.
