Refuge:

In the supreme Buddha, dharma and assembly
I take refuge until attaining enlightenment.
Through the merit of practicing generosity and so on,
May I attain buddhahood in order to benefit beings.
(Repeat three times)

Dedication of Merit:

By this virtue, may all beings
Perfect the accumulations of merit and wisdom
And achieve the two genuine kayas
Arising from merit and wisdom.

Our doors are temporarily closing

Nalandabodhi Vancouver is heeding the wise call to suspend public gatherings.

For the foreseeable future, dharma programs will no longer happen at Maitrivana.

We encourage our friends and members to stay home when possible, to stay caring together, and to stay connected to dharma @ Nalandabodhi via the illusion of Zoom.
