The six General Precepts

There are six general precepts or advice that we should try to engage in our daily life when we have taken refuge. They are;

1. Always remember the qualities of the Triple Gem.

2. Take refuge 3 times in the morning and 3 times at night.

3. Whenever we eat or drink something, first offer it to the Triple Gem.

4. Always rely on the Triple Gem.

5. Wherever possible and appropriate, encourage others to take refuge in the Triple Gem.

6. Having taken refuge never give it up.
