Three Treasures

Buddham Saranam Gacchami
Dhamman Saranam Gacchami
Sangham Saranam Gacchami

Fortunate is it to be born into human life. Now we are living it. Rare is it to encounter the Teachings of the Buddha. Now we hear it. If we do not seek the Truth of the Dharma in this life, in what life shall we find it? Let use reverently take refuge in the Three Treasures of the Truth.

I TAKE REFUGE IN BUDDHA. May we all together absorb into ourselves the principal of the way to Enlightenment and awaken within us our highest aspiration.
ITAKE REFUGE IN DHARMA. May we all together be submerged in the dept of the Dharma and gain wisdom as deep as the ocean.
ITAKE REFUGE IN SANGHA. May we all together become units in true accord in a life of harmony, in a spirit of universal brotherhood, freed from the bondage of selfishness.

Even though ages of myriad of kalpas hard is it to hear such an excellent, profound, and wonderful teaching. Now we are able to hear and receive it. Let us thoroughly understand the true meaning of Tathagatha’s Teaching.
