Repentance Ceremony (Full Moon August,  2014)

 
\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

At 6 PM., when Bodhi mandala was in tranquil seat, Junior\r\nVen. Thich Tam Dat, Abbot of Vinh Phap pagoda (Khanh Hoa, Nha Trang city) -\r\nHoang Phap Pagoda’s Monk – had a Dharma talk with the theme of “The Path of\r\nPractice”. This way was orderly instructed by the Buddha which wrote in the\r\nGanaka Moggallana sutra.(Majjhima-Nikaya Sutra No 107, Chinese\r\nTripitaka, Number Counting Sutra of Maudgalyayana,Madhyamagama No 144)

\r\n\r\n

 Humankind, trees then all things in the universe have\r\nto be orderly accessed in the process of establishment, changing and\r\ndevelopment. It is the same as the Buddha’s teaching that is like training a\r\nhorse to be perfect. The Buddha taught six periods in education a person, which\r\nincludes six stages of a cultivator on the enlightenment path.

\r\n\r\n

 1. Keeping precepts, living from their protections,\r\nbeing in all dignities; fearing in each of little mistake, taking and learning\r\nof received precepts.

\r\n\r\n

2. Protecting of senses whose desires are met have to\r\nrelease general, particular appearances dominate and protect them\r\nfrom cupidity delusion.

\r\n\r\n

 3. Temperating of having food, observing to avoid diet\r\nmistakes.

\r\n\r\n

4. Always vigilantly aware of  clarifying the mind\r\naway obstacles of dharma

\r\n\r\n

5. Lucidly concentrating on all actions, dignities, thoughts\r\nin their charging deeds

\r\n\r\n

6. Eradicating hindrances of greed, anger, thina (loss\r\nof consciousness), wavering, doubt, attaining of the Zen kinds.

\r\n\r\n

 Being a cultivator, if exactly practicing as the\r\nmethod of the Buddha‘s teachings, it would certainly lead to the enlightenment\r\nsooner or later. 

\r\n\r\n

After the Drama talk, as usual, is the mass’s worshiping and\r\nreciting the Buddhas’ names, chanting the laypeople’s five precepts.
