Three Refuges

Buddham Buddham saranam gacharmin

Dharmam Dharmam saranam gacharmin

Sangham Sangham saranam gacharmin

 

Buddham ditiyam saranam gacharmin

Dharmam ditiyam saranam gacharmin

Sangham ditiyam saranam gacharmin

 

Buddham tritiyam saranam gacharmin

Dharrmam tritiyam saranam gacharmin

Sangham tritiyam saranam gacharmin

 

I take refuge in the Buddha

I take refuge in the Dharma

I take refuge in the Sangha

 

For the second time I take refuge in the Buddha

For the second time I take refuge in the Dharma

For the second time I take refuge in the Sangha

 

For the third time I take refuge in the Buddha

For the third time I take refuge in the Dharma

For the third time I take refuge in the Sangha

I heard that this chant is one of the oldest known chants in any language.  It is in Pali, the scriptural language of early Buddhism.
