Dharmabyte: Not Just a Matter of Recitation

By Rijupatha on Mon, 17 Aug, 2015 - 18:18

The essential act that makes one a Buddhist is Going for Refuge to the Three Jewels: the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. Then one’s life begins to centre on spiritual, not mundane values. Our FBA Dharmabyte today is called “Not Just a Matter of Recitation” by Sangharakshita from the talk “Going for Refuge” given in 1965. This talk is part of the series “The Meaning of Conversion in Buddhism”.

Vajratara delivers today’s FBA Dharmabyte, “The Things We Bow Down To.” We’ve got this nagging feeling that things are just not right. What do we go for refuge from? What do we go for refuge to?

From the talk, “Padmasambhava and the King of Tibet” given at Sheffield Buddhist Centre, 2007.
