Before beginning the rite, Junior Thich Tam Duoc had a dharma talk with the theme Buddhist Learners' Faith.

In life or in religion, if losing trust is losing everything because that is our companion, without faith we can hardly do anything, as well as belief must be accompanied by wisdom.

According to Abhidharma, trust is a good mind state. That is faith, confidence, belief. The faith that arises makes the mind awake, clear, clean, and free from impurities. Faith must be based on wisdom - that is, having faith in the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, causes and effects, causes and conditions.

Also when dealing with events in life: we should:

“Not hurry to dismiss, or not hurry to believe.

Sages light themselves up with their mind

 Once good and evil are revealed,

 a straight way, an unsuspecting life to go.”

The monk conducted clearly the belief in Buddhism is pure faith in the Three Jewels. That belief must be based on knowledge, wisdom in order to avoid the blind belief of superstition, theocracy.

The factors to generate the belief are: Remembering the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, giving, the gods, reflecting on impermanence, suffering, non-self of all things, ... Besides, we should stay beside good individuals to listen to dharma, good ideas, practice Dharma and live harmony with all".

Every day we should learn to live with good thoughts, words and deeds so that we can have moments of happiness right now and here, because living in good dhamma is the best noble and beautiful life.

Before the end of the discourse, he dedicated a poem to Buddhists:

"I believe in Buddha, Dharma, Sangha. When the sutra is understood and Dharma is practiced, my wisdom is clear, deleting ignorance, except for delusions, immeasurable blessing and merit, peaceful living, liberating mind, returning besides the Buddha."

Next, the mass listened to the song Sand dust in life.

After the talk, the mass started the penitential ceremony as usual.
