The Three Refuges
We take refuge in Buddha
We take refuge in Dharma
We take refuge in Sangha

The Three Pure Precepts
To do no harm
To do good
To live to benefit all beings

The Ten Prohibitory Precepts
A follower of the Way does not kill but rather cultivates and encourages life.

A follower of the Way does not take what is not given but rather cultivates and encourages generosity.

A follower of the Way does not misuse sexuality but rather cultivates and encourages open, honest and acceptable relationships.

A follower of the Way does not lie but rather cultivates and encourages truthful communication.

A follower of the Way does not intoxicate self or others but rather cultivates and encourages clarity.

A follower of the Way does not slander but rather cultivates and encourages respectful speech.

A follower of the Way neither extols self nor demeans others but rather cultivates awareness of the interdependant nature of self.

A follower of the Way does not attach to anything, even the teaching, but rather cultivates mutual support and shares the dharma with all beings.

A follower of the Way does not harbor ill will but rather cultivates loving-kindness, understanding, and forgiveness.

A follower of the Way does not turn away from the Three Refuges but rather cultivates and encourages taking refuge in them.
