What does it mean to become a Buddhist, and how do you do it?

This class will discuss the meaning and process of becoming a Buddhist and taking the Refuge Vow.  Open to everyone and highly recommended for those wishing to formally take the Refuge Vow with Acharya Moh Hardin on February 19, 2019.

The Refuge Vow marks the decision to commit oneself wholeheartedly to the Buddhist path and to further one's practice and training. It is the formal commitment to being a Buddhist, following the example of the Buddha, his teachings (the dharma) and joining the community (sangha) of fellow practitioners.
