\r\n\r\n

* Briefing of Buddhism fundamentals as the meaning\r\nof taking refuge in Triratna, Five Precepts, how to recite Buddha’s name, how\r\nto sit (meditate).

\r\n\r\n

* Advice on cultivating profound knowledge of\r\nBuddha’s teaching instead of the superficial one. The Buddhists should have\r\ntheir practice accompanied with learning Dharma on their path to the\r\nEnlightenment.

\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\n
In the evening, the\r\nVenerable shared to the participants some information about happiness and\r\nchallenges of Vietnamese expatriates in US and the pros and cons of the real\r\nlife there. Each person or region has its own SWOT factors (Strength, Weakness,\r\nOpportunity and Threat). Not everyone living in US is rich and happy. Now and\r\nthen, we can get the information or sight of homeless wanderers, robbery, ashes\r\nand ruins, and the feeling of anxiety ... In short wherever we live, we should\r\ntry our best to overcome the challenges, contribute to the society, sow merits\r\nand practice for the happiness of all in this life and the after-lives. The Buddhists\r\nshould transform his karma from bad to good mode by following and practicing\r\nthe True Dharma, acknowledging the non-self and impermanence in life and\r\npromoting Bodhi mind of compassion. Doing so, we would be able to live happily\r\nand easefully regardless whatever things happen.
