About the Course

Difficulties and worry appear in all our lives. Sometimes it’s just an uneasy feeling; sometimes it’s a terror that makes us helpless. As long as we suffer we are not free. Where do we turn for reliable and permanent relief and help? By going for Refuge in the Three Jewels, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, we esxtablish the basis of a life that is free from all fear. We start to solve our problems by relying on Buddha as our Spiritual Teacher, his teachings – the Dharma, and our community of fellow practitioners – the Sangha.

Kelsang Dragden will give two teachings in the morning. Following lunch, we will have a chance to formally take Refuge, and therefore enter into Buddhism.

If you would like some more information about Refuge Vows. Please feel free to contact the centre prior to this very special event.
