The Refuge Vow Class is an introduction to Buddhism and is open to anyone curious about what it means to be a Buddhist. When a person takes Refuge in the Three Jewels, one is called a Buddhist. What does it mean to take refugee in the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha? This class will introduce the basic principles of the Three Jewels.

The Refuge Vow Sourcebook is a valuable resource for those preparing to take the Refuge Vow. It includes talks on Refuge by various teachers including Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. It will be available for purchase, or you may wish to borrow it from a friend.

This course is especially recommended for anyone who wants to take the Refuge Vow on Sunday, October 29th, 2017 at the Boulder Shambhala Center. A separate registration is required (for details click here).

The Refuge Vow is open to anyone who has the sincere aspiration to take the vow and has practiced meditation for a while. It is recommended that individuals discuss their intention with a meditation instructor and take the Refuge Vow Class. Those who cannot take the class should discuss alternate means of preparation with a meditation instructor.
If you do not have a meditation instructor, please email Fred Jaben at [email protected] to request a Refuge Vow meeting.
