Lama Zopa Rinpoche berättar om Att ta tillflykt samt De fem lekmanna-principerna .
"Refuge means to have faith and conviction in the Three Jewels—Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. When we take refuge in the Three Jewels, we are placing ourselves under their guidance. The Three Jewels become our objects of refuge. On the basis of taking the refuge vow, there is the option to take any or all five of the precepts, according to what one is prepared to commit to in daily life.
The Five Precepts are: to abstain for life from killing, stealing, sexual misconduct, lying, and taking alcohol."
