Update: 01/04/2014
In the evening March 30th, 2014 (Horse Year 30th February), Dharma guardian group, as usual, had a periodical meeting.
 

Happiness – Faith – Eternal Truth

 

\r\n\r\n

Before the Dharma talk, they had a meditation moment to\r\nreturn to themselves and experience in happy time at present.

\r\n\r\n

By the confident presentation and enthusiasm, Junior\r\nVenerable Thich Tam Trong had a Dharma talk on the topic: “Happiness – Faith –\r\nEternal Truth”, which is about happiness. People want to be happy, but the\r\ndefinition of happiness is different to each person whose way to happiness has\r\nmany turns. Happiness is return to oneself. It is not necessary to find things\r\nin material like eating, entertaining, gambling, alcohol drinking, etc, such\r\nhappiness is affected by impermanence and temporary momentary. It certainly\r\nexists in the long term when we only return ourselves and find joy in inner\r\nfeeling, which is real happiness. Reasons of sorrow are three poisonous snakes\r\nof greed, anger and ignorance. Anyone who is affected by greed, anger and\r\nignorance will ever attain happiness. At the end of the Dharma talk, he\r\nexplained four methods to obtain happiness:

\r\n\r\n

1. Holding the ideal living.

\r\n\r\n

2. Not backbiting others.

\r\n\r\n

3. Learning to apologize.

\r\n\r\n

4. Learning to be patient in difficulties, hardship, and challenge.

\r\n\r\n

Besides, the important thing that helps us to obtain\r\nhappiness is to gain rightful faith. The faith should base on wisdom that\r\nBuddha names Right Faith. People should confirm on the way of obtaining\r\nhappiness by Buddha teachings.
