Dharma develops due to Sangha’s preaching

\r\n\r\n

Traditionally, the patriarch has always focused on\r\nreceiving monks and protecting the mass. Leaving home for practicing Dharma is\r\nvery a noble path, which helps with the best conditions to advance in\r\nleading to enlightenment and preaching dharma for the benefit of human beings.

\r\n\r\n

On the same purpose, in the afternoon, the Senior Ven had a\r\nhome-leaving prove for three good men. In the ceremony, the Venerable has a few\r\nwords before the official Pravrajya (cutting hair for leaving home practicing\r\nin the pagoda), the path for more than 25 centuries ago, the Buddha had\r\napplied. Then the Venerable Abbot celebrated the hair cutting for their\r\nofficially joining the Buddhist ordained disciples.

\r\n\r\n

Immediately after the ceremony, the Venerable had a\r\npreaching to all Buddhists in ashrams. By their ordaining, in the story of\r\nthe Buddha time, the Ven. has conveyed a message to the public following\r\nHis footsteps and practice His Dharma. The Venerable preached the public that\r\nthey should know being ordained as a great benefit, but no one can do it. This\r\nis an extraordinary person with extraordinary will, who can do such\r\nextraordinary work. In addition, the Buddhas teachings have great abilities in\r\npersonal transformation, towards goodness of life. So Being a Buddhist we must\r\nhave a positive attitude, try to study and Dharma practice, which will achieve\r\nhigh results in their own practice.

Finally, the Venerable wished all Buddhists diligent\r\npractice and achieved more joy in the Dharma.
