To formally take refuge in the three jewels is to become a Buddhist. What does it mean to take refuge in the Buddha, the dharma, and the sangha? This three-session class introduces the basic principles of the three jewels and is an introduction to Buddhism for anyone.

This course is recommended for anyone who wants to take the refuge vow on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at the Boulder Shambhala Center. If you intend to take the vow, you will need to register for the ceremony here.


The refuge vow sourcebook will be used for the course & you will receive an email inquiry when you register for the class.  You must respond to the email by September 15th to place an order for the text.  It includes talks on refuge by the following Rinpoches: Chögyam Trungpa, Sakyong Mipham, Khenchen Thrangu, and Venerable Tsoknyi.
