This class is for people with all levels of experience with Buddhism, including those of us who are contemplating taking refuge vows and are thinking about what it means to be a Buddhist, as well as those who have already taken refuge vows and/or are longtime practitioners. In this session, we will focus on sharing (if we wish to) some of our personal stories of how and why our minds turned to the Buddha Dharma. In addition, we will review the four seals that we accept in our understanding when we characterize ourselves as Buddhists. Please bring your stories, questions, and enjoyment of the Buddha Dharma.
