Taking Refuge


Taking refuge is the means by which the mind is directed toward the Dharma. Prostrations serve to overcome pride and to lessen clinging to the ego. Vajrasattva practice purifies the practitioner of negative karma. The practice of Mandala offering is a training in generosity and accumulates merits, and Guru Yoga leads to a deep unity with the mind of teacher, which is inseparable from the mind of the Buddha. Above all, these practices for overcoming laziness and sloth, and counteract a relapse into the old behavior patterns that have kept all beings ensured in the cycle of rebirths since beginning-less time. -
