Refuge Prayer

At the foot of the Bodhi Tree,
Beautifully seated,
peaceful and smiling,
The living source of
Understanding and compassion
To the Buddha I go for refuge.

The path of mindful living,
leading to healing,
Joy and enlightenment,
The way of peace,
To the Dharma I go for refuge.

The loving and supportive
Community of practice,
Realizing harmony,
Awareness and liberation,
To the Sangha I go for refuge.
