To emphasize the important factors of practice, he quoted some verses from Dhammapada:

“Mind is the leader, the mind is the boss, if we act and speak with the evil mind, suffering will follow as the wheel follows the cattle' footprint.”

"Mind is the leader, the mind is the boss,  if we act and speak with the pure mind, happiness will follow as our shadows.

For the lay, taking the Three Gems as the best refutation and keeping the Five Precepts well are the foundation practice, in there mind plays the central role in the rule-keeping and the 6-sense-base protecting in daily life.

The mind is the object of any changing and karma maturation, the key for the right practice, and the governor of the 5 base organs. It means we just take care and observe our mind, the other 5 sense organs are in the controlling, and gradually become pure.

By greeting, Ven. Thich Chan Tinh comes to know the Bodhi Temple in current was the church in the past, having bought back and making some decoration in 2014. Although it's new, it has enough living condition for both monks and Buddhists who come for practice joining. The Abbot with Dharma-spreading vow but until now no any long-residence monk to do it.

After the talk, Ven. Thich Chan Tinh visited the Rock City with the Abbot’s guide and they have more talk and share about their troubles and Dharma promulgating experience.
