Refuge

REFUGE

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feelings.

  4. Ben, I hope you don’t mind my inserting a shameless plug here… I finally made it to press with my illustrated version of the lamrim (tibetan buddhist stages of the path to enlightenment), “21 Steps To Happiness”. It’s on Amazon now: really powerful lessons, in terms that the average westerner (children or adults) can understand. Here’s the link to my amazon page, where you can see both the picture book and coloring book versions. https://www.amazon.com/Leslee-Hare/e/B07HMQ1J1F/

    • I’ll use Amazon.uk though, I think. 😉 I recall reading a little about “21 Steps To Happiness”. Have a good Solstice/Christmas/New Year. I hope 2019 won’t be so demanding of you, Leslee. ❤
