Taking Refuge

Really a good habit to begin every new day by taking Refuge in Lamas, Yidams, Buddhas, Dharma, Sangha and Protectors. A powerful and great help to do so, is for me the Kagyu Refuge tree. In Tibetan Buddhism, the Refuge Tree, (alternate English renderings: Refuge Field, Merit Field, Field of Merit), may be represented on a thangka as a mnemonic device and precursor to being fully visualized during advanced Refuge Formula or evocation, the lineage of gurus and transmission of teachings is depicted in visual form as a visual mind map. Refuge tree and merit fields, as mandala, are Pure lands.
