On the evening of June 4, 2020, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Hue and Buddhist followers chanted The Dharma-flower Sutras, walked in meditation and recited Buddha's name.

After chanting the Surangama mantra and reciting Buddha's name on the morning of June 05th, 2020, the mass listened to the Dharma talk from Junior Ven. Thich Tam Hue, Head of the Charity Board of Hoang Phap Pagoda with the topic: Completing right dharma to parents' funeral.

He clearly preached the funeral according to the Buddhist spirit that their relatives should not weep and complain, but should be mindful, aware of the impermanence in life, in order to support parents no longer attached to worldly sentiments, leaving gently and easily. At the same time, Buddhists need to invite monks, nuns and the board reciting the Buddha's name to chant sutras, recite the Buddha's name, in order to pray rebirth for the soul, comfort their family, and turn their mind towards the Dharma.

All members always recite the Buddha's name for 49 days, that is support of reciting the Buddha’s name. The children and grandchildren should bring the spirit's possessions to make offerings to the Three Jewels, help the poor, benefit sentient beings and then dedicate these merit to the soul ... In the afternoon, the mass started the repentant rite as usual.

By the way, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Hue has given dharma gifts to Buddhists in the repentant ceremony, including some books: Lessons Learned When Visiting Buddhist Temples, Muddy pond, Huong Phap magazine.

The repentant day ended in the joys of the participants.
