Taking of the Refuges and Precepts – 4th Sunday
Taking refuge in the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha is an ancient, traditional Buddhist practice, reminding us of the peaceful effects of awakening, of the teachings, and of the community in our lives. And committing to the Five Training Precepts (not harming others, not taking that which is not offered, not harming others with our sexuality, not harming others with our speech, and not harming by the use of drugs and alcohol) is a practice that many lay Buddhists take on as part of their training. The fourth Sunday of each month will provide an opportunity to do this in a formal way in our community.
Follows the Sunday 45-Minute sitting each 4th Sunday.
