In this way, taking refuge in the Triple Gem of Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha involves a commitment to proper spiritual ideals, as well as a fundamental sense of restraint.

The Triple Refuge is the foundation to genuine freedom.  The training rules create the conditions and set the parameters for walking the path that leads to liberation.  Maintaining them religiously frees the mind from guilt and remorse, and has a strong protective quality, warding off danger.

To begin with, all Buddhists should observe the Five Precepts of not killing, not stealing, not commit adultery, not lying and no intoxicants.

Practising precepts not only put a stop to evil, but also promotes the cultivation of all that is good.  By restraining the mind and shutting the door on harmful behaviour that leads to pain and suffering, and by promoting the purity of mind and action that leads to liberation, these training rules provide the essential foundation for all Buddhist practice.
