Gateways of Remembrance: The Three Refuges

Jan 6, 2016

This talk explores the traditional refuges of awareness (buddha nature), truth (dharma) and love (sangha) that are at the heart of Buddhism, and found in many spiritual and religious traditions. It includes a look at our false refuges – strategies that seek to comfort and gratify, but are temporary fixes – and moves into reflections that help us remember, trust and live from our true nature. (Concludes with a ceremony tying red cords in remembrance of the refuges.)
