    Open to anyone who wants to make a formal commitment to the Buddhist Path. The refuge vow marks the decision to commit oneself wholeheartedly to the Buddhist path and to further one’s practice and training. It is the formal commitment to being a Buddhist, following the example of the Buddha Shakyamuni, his teachings (the dharma), and joining the community (sangha) of fellow practitioners.

    As this is a major commitment, individuals planning to take the vow should undertake appropriate preparation. They can do so by signing up for the Refuge Vow Preparation Class.

    Although there is no fee to take the vow, it is traditional to offer a Heart Gift to the preceptor.
