How to distinguish the Three Jewels

There are different ways of distinguishing the Three Jewels. We can think of the Buddha as the doctor, Dharma as the medicine, Sangha as the nurse

who helps us taking it in the right way.

Or the Buddha is like a boatman; Dharma is like a boat; and Sangha like companions escaping in this lifeboat.

We should jump in the boat and join them.
