Refuge, Precepts and Bodhisattva Commitments: Arising from a formal and heartfelt request by students, Lama Mark will be offering the teachings and blessing of: Taking Refuge, Precepts and the Bodhisattva Vow. Given in the traditional way, it is a two part process:
First is a teaching on understanding Refuge, Precepts and the Bodhisattva commitments. This will take place at 7pm on Thursday, 17th March. Second, on Saturday, 19th March at 9amis the ceremony for taking Refuge, Precepts and the Bodhisattva Vow. This two part method gives people the opportunity to reflect on the meaning, importance and profound commitments before attending the ceremony.
This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who has previously taken Refuge, Precepts and the Bodhisattva commitments to attend the teachings and/or the ceremony to refresh their commitments. No charge. May make Gift/Dana to Lama.
