A refuge is a centre of excellence in spiritual terms; it is where support and guidance can be found, as Buddhists follow a very demanding and challenging spiritual path


  • A teacher, the awakened or enlightened one
  • A human being, not a divine being
  • Buddhists do not worship the Buddha; they see him as an example for others to follow
  • In both Zen and Pure land, our own tathagatagarbha is emphasised
  • Pure Land Buddhists take refuge in nembutsu


  • The Dharma as a whole is the teaching (sasana) of the Buddha
  • Theravada…
