After registering in the morning, monks guided all attendees to the lecture hall to participate in the activity. Finishing chanting the sutra of parents’ Merit Gratitude, they heard a dharma talk from Junior Thich Tam Thuc with the topic The future is this moment.

Therefore, they should learn to control their physiological balance and invest a lot in their future. Each of us is capable of one thing, so let's take time and focus on developing and perfecting them. Now, if we are giddy, or loving, then we have forgotten our own future. So, let's prepare ourselves well to enter life. All participants together with the monks exchanged issues of cultivation and activities in daily life.

After spending a few minutes of meditative sitting, entertainment and singing in the afternoon, the learners listened to a short training program from teacher Nguyen Ngoc Man Co-founder of Tiny Teeny Town - English Playground - a summer skills and value camp program for students, L&D specialists in skills, Tue Duc school system on Emotional Management & Conflict Resolution Skills.
