Having not many temples in Birmingham city, Alabama State for the Vietnamese Buddhist to learn Dharma and join the practice. But with the high spirit to learn Dharma, Upasika Hue Hien invited Ven. Thich Chan Tinh to give Dharma and encourage the lay devotees in the Buddhist practice.    

He talks about the role of Upasika and Upasaka in protecting Dharma and increasing self-practice. The lay people have heavy duty and attachment to family, so they need to keep the right-view in practice. Buddha's disciples have four types: Bhikkhu, Bhikkhuni, Upasika, Upasaka, it means the lay devotee also play an important role in developing and preserving Buddhism. However, before being a good sample of lay practice one first has to fulfill his family's duty. Don't try to follow the monk and nun, we alter the Buddhist image in other people. In the case that one really wants to improve their practice          , make a serious vow to keep the rules. If the monk carrying and spreading Dharma, the lay will support them to do it.         

 When the lay devotee recognizes their important role in Buddhism, they will balance between family care and Dharma practice. For any achievement of a monk, there is the lay contribution. By this, the lay-devotee also fulfill their merit and gain enlightenment.
