This event celebrates those students who have been preparing to take Refuge and Bodhsattva Vows as they take that step.

We also celebrate people taking vows of entry into the Mahayanagana and Shrimalagana - the circle of committed students within the Awakened Heart Sangha. 

This event is open to all to come online and we especially welcome vow takers along with their relatives and friends to join us at The Hermitage for the ceremony. 

Anyone who has taken Refuge or Bodhisattva vow before may wish to be present to witness the ceremony as a way of renewing their vows.
