Vow of Refuge and Bodhicitta, with Lama Tsering

To start the year off with the right motivation, on January 1, 2024, Lama Tsering will grant the vows of Refuge and Bodhichitta, at 10am. This event will only take place in person.

In the Vow of Refuge, the practitioner formally commits to following the Buddha's teachings, taking refuge in the Three Jewels (the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha).

In the Bodhichitta vow, the practitioner makes a commitment to work for the benefit of all beings and to strive to minimize their suffering.

In making this commitment, the practitioner makes a firm decision to train their own mind, avoiding negativity and striving to practice virtue until all beings reach Enlightenment.

Please confirm your attendance by December 31 at 12 noon.

Offerings should be made directly to Lama Tsering, via envelope or pix.
