Update: 28/10/2020
Hoa Phuc pagoda in Quoc Oai district, Hanoi city held for The 2nd retreat named “Envoy of Tathagata" on Oct. 24th- 25th, 2020 for the large mount Buddhists, including permanent attended and diligent members, Buddhists who received Bodhisattva's precepts and some of public servants.
 

Happy to be

 

Despite old age, gray hair, many Buddhists early come back to the pagoda in a happy, glad mind. After sightseeing the pure scene, the Buddhists gathered in the lecture hall. Abbot Thich Tam Hoa taught Buddhists’ precepts and took eight precepts.

He also spent a lot of time lecturing on the second precept - "No stealing" and the third one - "Don't say false things" to all Bodhisattva at home. At the same time, he guided the practice of each precept to help "Tathagata’s Envoys" understand more clearly and practice the precepts in accordance with the Buddha's teachings.

At this retreat, Buddhists are also instructed by the monk "to repent the Buddhas’ names", to practice reciting the Buddha's name, and meditate according to the ritual of Hoang Phap Pagoda.

At meal time, the Buddhists kept quiet, lined up solemnly, stepped into the dining room to enjoy the vegetarian meal in mindfulness.

The retreat helped Buddhists understand and love the Buddha more. Since then, the "Tathagata's envoys" vowed to practice diligently, bringing the light of wisdom, shining compassion spreading everywhere.
