Buddhists "take refuge" in, or to "go for refuge" to, the Three Jewels or Triple Gem,. This can be done formally in lay and monastic ordination ceremonies. The Three Jewels general signification is: ⁕the Buddha; ⁕the Dharma, the teachings; ⁕the Sangha, the community of enlightened beings, often approximated to community of monks and nuns. In Vajrayana, practitioners can visualize the refuge tree, and to aid this interior viewing, the refuge tree is typically depicted on scroll paintings or murals.
