Three Treasures

Sangha, the community of all beings.
Take refuge in it.
Take note mentally of all seeings
so to cherish them all the more.
To your fellow beings, open your door.

Dharma, the enlightened way of living.
Take refuge in it.
Understand that receiving is less than giving.
But receive a gift with happiness.
And love each other with tenderness.

Buddha, or enlightenment within,
Take refuge in it.
Doing so avoids the tendancy towards sin,
avoiding all action that causes suffering.
Taking all action that happily causes singing.
