In daily life we take the Buddha as our refuge when we identify the inner sense of calm, stable awareness and learn how to dwell in it. The word 'Buddha' means 'awake'. When we refrain from getting lost in the endless dramas of thought, feeling and emotion, and turn towards the vivid sky-like wakefulness within which all activity takes place, we take the Buddha as our refuge.

 

When we don't look on sensual pleasures, fame, status or power as life goals; when we don't look to belief, prayer or ceremonies as a path beyond suffering; when we know how to use the Buddha's teachings as tools to reveal the true nature of things - then we take the Dhamma as our refuge.

 

When we make a consistent effort to abandon all that is unwholesome in our hearts, when we make a consistent effort to cultivate all that is wholesome, when we devote ourselves to the purification of the heart, then by seeking to embody the qualities of the Noble Ones, we take the Sangha as our refuge.

 

- Ajahn Jayasāro
