REFUGE IN THE THREE JEWELS (Online & InPerson)
March 29 @ 7:00PM – 8:30PM AEST
Almchi Monastery, Ladakh
Find out what it means to take refuge in the Three Jewels – the Buddha, his teachings, and the spiritual community, as well as the lay vows, refuge commitments and essential practices of Buddhism.
As FPMT’S spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche explains, there are four qualities which make Buddha the ultimate refuge:
– Buddha is free from suffering and the cause of suffering
– Buddha is expert in the methods to free others from suffering
– Buddha has no discriminating thought and has equal compassion and care for all
– Buddha works to benefit every sentient being whether they benefit him or not.
These teachings are part of the Discovering Buddhism series presented by FPMT Registered Teacher, Eddie Peet.
