For taking refuge in the three Jewels we need to know the good qualities of the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
By knowing the qualities we develop an aspiration to have these qualities ourself and we develop faith which inspires us. The more we know the good qualities of the Buddha we don’t need to talk about the Dharma because it is the embodiment of those qualities, it is the reflection of its and it shows us how to attain those qualities.
Today we will hear about the qualities of the Buddha’s body and speech.
