To take refuge is to commit ourselves to the Buddhist path of awakening. . This day and a half program explores the meaning and practice of the Three Jewels, known as the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. We take refuge in the Buddha as example, the dharma as path, and the sangha as community.
This introductory program is open to all.
The Bodhisattva program and Vow is available to those who have previously taken the Refuge Vow.
Those interested in taking either the refuge or bodhisattva vow will have the opportunity at the end of the program
Participants in either program will study on Saturday and early Sunday morning. The Vow ceremonies will be held at about 11am. The Bodhisattva vow is a private ceremony. The Refuge vow ceremony may be attended by friends, family and the public.
Program includes Saturday and Sunday lunches and breakfasts for lodgers on Saturday and Sunday
Those looking to take the either vow need to ask their meditation instructor to e-mail a recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org
