A Day with Vietnamese Buddhists during the Retreat in San Jose City, California, United States

 

In the morning session, the Venerable guided the etiquette for Buddhist and how to perform walking recitation to the participants.

In the afternoon, the mass practiced the walking recitation before the Dharma talk. In which, the Venerable Thich Chan Tinh shared about “Five Subjects for Frequent Recollection” for Buddhists as following:

I am of the nature to age, I have not gone beyond ageing.

* I am of the nature to sicken, I have not gone beyond sickness

* I am of the nature to die, I have not gone beyond dying.

* All that is mine, beloved and pleasing, will become otherwise, will become separated from me.

* I am the owner of my kamma, heir to my kamma, born of my kamma, related to my kamma, abide supported by my kamma.Whatever kamma I shall do, for good or for ill, of that I will be the heir.

According to the Venerable, the practitioners should have the knowledge and orientation to plan for their after-lives, such as practicing Five Precepts for the human realm with good merits, practicing the ten wholesomeness for the God realm … Especially those who would like to be born spontaneously in Amitabha Buddha’s Land should :

* Perform filial piety to parents and teachers, non-killing, practice the ten wholesomeness

* Take refuge in Triratna, perform morality with relevant precepts,

* Awaken the thought of enlightenment, strongly believe in the cause and effect rule, study sutras, and support other practitioners.

These are also the meaning of the slogan: “Good for both secular life and Path”, helping the practitioners go smoothly on the way to the Path of liberation with least obstacles

The first day of the retreat ended in the joys of all.
