Taking refuge is turning away from separation and supremacy,
forsaking pleasure and pain, gain and loss, fame and insignificance, praise and censure,
and renouncing all delusions of self-power.
I take refuge in what is, as it is, in Suchness.
I take refuge in True Purity, True Being, True Bliss, and True Permanence;
in the Buddha within and without; in the Name that is non-dual Truth.
I take refuge in Amideva Tathagata, Boundless Light and Life, the primordial Buddha.
I take refuge in His Name, the recollection of my own true nature, the unfailing Dharma.
I take refuge in all who have transcended birth and death, the embracing Sangha.
