Taking refuge in the Buddha is part of what's known at the Triple Gem - Refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. In this talk Mary talks about how when we take refuge in the Buddha, we're taking refuge in awakening. The Buddha / Siddartha Gotama was a human being who was able to fully let go and become the Enlightened One. His teachings offer a way for each of us to move towards liberation. Taking refuge in the Buddha is an act of trust that this will work for us as well.
