Welcome to Buddhism Basics And Beyond
I go for refuge to the Buddha
I go for refuge to the Dharma
I go for refuge to the Sangha
I take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha
Through the Merit and Wisdom I create by
Practicing Generosity and the other Perfections,
May I become a Buddha
For the benefit of all sentient beings
