Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Also referred to as the Three Treasures, i.e. that which is valued above all else. Buddhists take refuge in The Three Jewels as follows: I take refuge in Buddha, and resolve that with all beings I will understand the Great Way, whereby the Buddha-seed may forever thrive. I take refuge in Dharma, and resolve that with all beings I will enter deeply into the Sutra-treasure, whereby my wisdom may grow as vast as the ocean. I take refuge in Sangha, and its wisdom, example and never-failing help, and resolve to live in harmony with all sentient beings.
