Our mind has tremendous power to either help or harm us. Through practicing refuge, we gradually learn how to become our own protector, instead of our own worst enemy, building stable habits of peace, joy and freedom within our own heart which we can then share with others.
We can achieve complete and permanent protection from all suffering by sincerely relying upon the Three Jewels: Buddha – the source of all refuge; Dharma – the realizations of Buddha’s teachings; and Sangha – pure Dharma practitioners who help us with our spiritual practice. Dharma is like medicine that prevents the sufferings of samsara, Buddha is the doctor who gives us this medicine, and the Sangha are the nurses who assist us.
