Three Refuges and Five Precepts

Participating in the ceremony of taking refuge in the Three Jewels is the first important step for anyone who wants to become a Buddhist. Why? Because the heart of Buddhism is the Three Jewels of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha.

The Five Precepts are a basic part of Buddhism and are: no killing, no stealing, no sexual misconduct, no lying, and no using alcohol or drugs. The Five Precepts are a protecting mechanism for practitioners.
