Daily Quote

The main function of the Buddha Jewel is to reveal the spiritual path to disciples by giving perfect Dharma teachings; the main function of the Dharma Jewel is to protect living beings from fear and suffering; and the main function of the Sangha Jewel is to help others by setting a good example. If we go for refuge knowing this, this is going for refuge understanding the different functions of the Three Jewels.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche,
Joyful Path of Good Fortune
