Compiled by Tarchin Hearn
I take refuge in wisdom, compassion and non-clinging awareness.
I take refuge in the full richness of here.
I take refuge in the ever present immediacy of now.
Truth is all pervading.
It is the thusness of this moment,
the suchness that we are.
My refuge is to live within the truth.
I take refuge in Buddha; the natural state of complete authenticity and presence.
I take refuge in Dharma; the universal teachings and demonstrations of awakening.
I take refuge in Sangha; the unfolding community of all life.
May I actively cultivate: generosity, wholesome relating, patience, skilled use of energy, a
continuity of caring and enquiry, and profound understanding.
May I and all beings awaken speedily, for the sake of everything and everyone.
We take refuge in love and clear seeing.
We live courageously in this world of birthing and dying.
Our hearts embrace all companions on this path of lucidity and freedom.
Thus contemplating refuge, feeling your ground and support; breathing with refuge, resting in refuge,
and exploring this sense of how and what one might be.
This prayer is from the MahaKurnika Chenrizi Practice we do every evening at The Dharma Centre at 7:30. All are welcome. For more about this practice go to http://greendharmatreasury.org/writings/practices
