Vows are a skillful means to create enormous karma, the guiding lamppost of our journey, and a driving force to bring sincere practitioners all the way to awakening. Everything, whatever we are experiencing, comes from karmic cause and effect. Therefore, we need Vows, this heart commitment with internal integrity to walk on this awakening path. The spiritual path starts with Refuge Vows, the foundation of all the journeys that follow - the fearless heart of the Bodhisattva journey and the amazing allay of the Tantric journey. At the same time, our spiritual path never veers away from these Refuge Vows and we need to come back to them again and again. And so, we take refuge in the true refuge many times in our lifetime, especially at challenging times as we come to deepen our own understanding what it means to each of us.

Our precious teacher, Khandro-la will offer this refuge ceremony to those who wish to receive these vows, regardless of the level of your practice at this moment. If you are a DW member and haven't taken formal refuge vows and received a refuge name, this would be an auspicious occasion to do so. In fact, all Dakini’s Whisper members and practitioner friends are encouraged and invited to participate in this ceremony to renew their commitment and celebrate their fellow travelers for their commitment to this journey. Of course, all non-members are also welcome to join this special occasion.
