One-Day Cultivation

 

After breakfast, Buddhists gathered to the lecture halls to begin walking of reciting the Buddha names and chanting precepts. After that, the mass listened to the Dharma talk by Senior Ven. Thich Chan Tinh, Abbot of Hoang Phap Pagoda. 

Human often gets wrong awareness of this body as thinking it is "me" and "mine," but actually the body is the assembly of five aggregates (material, feeling, thought, action, and consciousness) and is governed by the law of the birth, old, sick, dead.

For the Buddhist learners, when facing the death of oneself or relatives, he will be no longer bewilderment, fear, suffering, and make no bad effects to others, because they have understood the impermanence and non-self of a human. From there, the Master preached the stories quoted in the Khuddakapatha Sutra - Nikaya Sutra, mentioning to people who were very calm before the dead of their loved ones, because they had a deep understanding of the Dharma, and deserved a lesson for us learning.

By telling stories in the canon, the Monk wants to remind the cultivators, when death comes, the cultivator should face it with a calm, lucid attitude to get peaceful at last moments.

After completing the reading of the Nikaya Sutra within 7 months and 7 days, the Master summarized into a verse in the Dhammapada Sutra: "Have no doing evil things, diligently do good deeds, cleanly keep on your mind, these words taught by the Buddha."

In the afternoon, after the time of reciting the Buddha names, Buddhists practiced together sitting meditation.

The cultivation day ended in the joy of the mass.
