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”.
