Speaker Series: Three Jewels with special guest Lama Surya Das

The Three Jewels and Refuges
Where the mind rests with trust.
What do you turn to when your enthusiasm for practice fades? Taking refuge in the Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha can focus our intentions and inspire our practice. The potential for awakening, a clear path of training, and ongoing support of the community are three classic and accessible jewels of the Dhamma. In this series we will contemplate the stabilizing influence of finding refuge in the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha, the timeless teachings of the Dhamma, and the courage and inspiration of the Sangha.
