TAKING REFUGE IN THE TRIPLE GEM CEREMONY
The “Triple Gem” means Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. “Dharma” refers to the teachings of the Buddha and “Sangha” is the collective name for the monastic Buddhist community. Just as a child must depend on the parents for protection and safety, Buddhists depend on the Triple Gem. Just as a navigator must rely on his compass, Buddhists rely on the Triple Gem. Just as light illuminates the path in darkness, the Triple Gem elucidates the way. In “taking refuge” one seeks guidance and to turns to the Triple Gem for liberation and salvation from suffering. The ceremony for taking refuge is important because this ceremony marks the beginning of our commitment to Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. Only someone who has taken refuge in the Triple Gem can truly call himself a Buddhist.
