Refuge Taking Ceremony ——5th June 2019


A Refuge Taking Ceremony conducted entirely in English, was organized by BW Monastery on 5th June 2019. About 50 participants, both young and old, took Refuge in the Three Jewels in this joyful event presided by Ven BenSi.

Among the participants were 3 Indians who had walked in to pay respect to the Buddha. The youngest to receive the Certificate of Refuge at BW Monastery on that day was a 5 year old boy. A good number of youths were also present to reaffirm their Refuge.


We rejoice with all who committed themselves to learning from the Three Jewels. May all receive Buddha's blessings and grow in wisdom and compassion.
