Verses for paying Homage to the Triple Gem

Buddha, Dhammma and Sangha

These verses are recited to pay homage to the Triple Gem - Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha. These words explain some of the great qualities and virtues pertaining to the Triple Gem. By reciting these words, one can understand the admirable qualities of the Triple Gem and so develop one's confidence in their intrinsic worth.

 The Buddha himself explained these qualities in many of His Suttas. He also advised his followers to recite these words to be mindful of the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha in times of fear or disturbance, whether arising from external sources or through evil influences so that such disturbances can be vanquished. This is because the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha are free from all kinds of defilements and hindrances such as greed, anger and ignorance.
