After the ritual ceremony of incensing praise, the\r\nrepresentative offered to all the honored ones the required praise of\r\nrefuge taking. By the heart for Buddhism and the trust from all youngsters, the\r\nSen. Ven. explained about three sermons of refuge taking  such as in the\r\nBuddha, in the Dharma, and in the Sangha. This is the basic stage to be a real\r\nBuddhist. Then, all the youngsters kneeled solemnly, and serenely held their\r\nhands together before the Buddha with sincere promise to do penance and\r\nreceived three Dharma’s from the honored ones.

After that, under the instruction of the Senior Ven, Junior\r\nVen. Thich Dao Quang shared with the youngsters about five precepts – five\r\nbasic moral principles of a Buddhist.
