The Three Treasures

 

What price would you pay for treasure?

Would you accept 3 million dollars TO NOT BE ENLIGHTENED by The Three Treasures?

The THREE TREASURES OF BUDDHISM refer to:

THE THREE GEMS

THE THREE REFUGES

THE THREE JEWELS…

That’s the problem with translations, different people pick different words when they translate.

The above names are meant to give them higher value:

1.  BUDDHA

The Teacher – How much is a role model, mentor, teacher, father, or mother worth?

Bodhisattva – How much is a saint worth who is dedicated to helping humanity?

Examines Life – How much is life worth without any God at all?

 

2.  DHARMA

The Teaching – How much is wisdom and enlightenment worth?

Doctrine – How much is the Holy Bible worth to humanity?

Explains life and words of Buddha – How valuable are the quotes of the 1st Buddha?

 

3.  SANGHA

The Disciples – How valuable is it to have another generation of Buddhists?

Virtues – How valuable is it that people help each other to be nicer and politer?

Embrace Teacher – How important is it to respect your father or mother?

 

We have some pages elsewhere that talk about the various Sanghas I have created in the last decade.

“Shaolin Chi Mantis Sanghas”
