 :r4wheel:Khenpo Tamgrin Rinpoche:
 Can Parents Do Refuge Taking for the Children without the Children’s Own Intentions?


Question:
After the parents have done the refuge-taking on behalf of their children, if the children do something not in accordance with Dharma, will such refuge-taking increase the children’s karmic obscuration?

Answer:
If this refuge-taking is not with the child’s intension, then the person having him take refuge shall be responsible, and must tell him after he is old enough the sense of refuge-taking. After having taken refuge and become a disciple of the Three Jewels, one shall not do bad things and shall do some good things. If one can make it, he could take refuge
