Three Jewels

The Three Jewels, also Three Treasures, Three Gems, and Triple Gems describe, by Burton Wilson in The Lotus Sutra as "three things that all Buddhists are enjoined to serve and revere, namely, the Buddha, the Law or Dharma, and the Samgha or Order"

I take refuge in the three jewels,
The Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangra.
Until I attain Enlightenment. (the 14th Dali Lama)
-- Melissa Mathinson, "Kundun." 1997
