The night before, in the solemn atmosphere, Junior Venerable Thich Tam Trong offered incense to Buddha and transferred eight precepts to Buddhists. Then, the Buddhists vowed to receive Dharma rules, cultivate hardly and focus on the precepts.

 It is known that The Eight Precepts is a cultivated way of the Buddhists at home for 24 hours. This is the way to keep body and mind pure by preventing the eight things including of not killing, stealing, sexual conduct, lying, drinking, making up, using perfume, playing or watching musical performances, laying or sitting or lying on a wide and beautiful bed, eating after 12 p.m.

In the morning, the cultivators enjoyed the Dharma talk of Junior Venerable Thich Tam Nhuan. By the Lotus Sutra, he helped the cultivators know more about skillful means which gave the advice and the teaching of the Buddha about the way of the cultivation in order to purify our mind and ease the three current karma. Moreover, he talked about the symbol and life of a monk, about the Buddha’s precepts, the way to keep mind and body peaceful and happy. Then, Junior Venerable Thich Tam Quyet had a talk with the Buddhists and help them to know more about The Three Treasures, The Five Precepts, the lesson of “Cause and Effect”. He advised them to focus on taking care of  their spiritual lives and find the way to make their parents believe in The Three Treasures, gathering good karma in the cultivated way.

 

 In the afternoon, the Buddhists joined the Dharma Course. Junior Venerable Thich Tam Trong and Junior Venerable Thich Tam Hoan controlled the course. The form of the examination is “Questions and Answers”. Each Buddhist would answer one of the 40 questions system. From the answers, the Buddhists can consolidate and receive more knowledge about Buddhism. At the end of the course, Junior Venerable Thich Tam Hoan had given some talk to the Buddhists. 

In the evening, after the Sutra chanting, all cultivators attended the ceremony of precept release. Junior Venerable Thich Tam Trong applauded the learning spiritual of the Buddhists and remind them of cultivation diligently,  applying the Buddha’s teaching into their lives.

 At the end of the day, the Junior Venerable granted the certificates to every cultivator.
