    3 Refuges 5 Precepts




    Going for refuge to the Triple Gem — the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha — is the door of entrance to the Buddha's teachings. Precepts, on the other hand, are basic guidelines of moral conduct to help a Buddhist cultivate positive conduct. Undertaking the precepts helps one to develop mindfulness. As we cultivate awareness of our feelings and various states of mind, such mindfulness restrains one from committing unwholesome acts.
