Vow of Refuge and Bodhicitta, with Lama Tsering

To start the year with the right motivation, on January 1, 2023, there will be concise Tara practice in Portuguese at 8am and Lama Tsering will grant the Refuge and Bodhicitta vows at 10am. This event can be followed in person or online.

In the vow of Refuge one formally commits to follow the Buddha's teachings, taking refuge in the Three Jewels (the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha). In the Bodhicitta vow, a commitment is made to work for the benefit of all beings and to strive to minimize their suffering.

By making this commitment, the practitioner makes a firm decision to train his or her own mind, avoiding negativity, and striving to practice virtue until all beings attain Enlightenment.

Those who have made such vows before are invited to renew them.
