Before beginning the ceremony, the mass was listened to the Dharma talk from Junior Ven. Thich Tam Quy, a monk at pagoda, shared through the topic of Carefulness to Ourselves.

"The greatest enemy in life is oneself."

No matter who we are, where we were born, what position we are in,. etc, surely, there remain obstacles, afflictions of sadness and pain. The reason for the suffering is because we ourselves appreciate this ego or body in awareness that it is "me" and "mine".

 Therefore, the Buddha taught all of us, there is no an "I" that exists, as well as all phenomena arises and damages due to predestined relationships. In life, everyone is afraid of this body will fade and wither but the most frightening thing is the mind of human. He shared, "The mind is the source of evil, the body is the forest of sin". All evil deeds come from thoughts and perception, so we must watch and be aware because they are very easy to put people on the path of delusion.

Through his talk, the monk advised each person to regularly use the mind into insight our body and mind, being alert when the greed, hatred and delusion are present. If good has not yet appeared, we make it appear and good things have had, we make it grow; On contrary, if evil has not yet appeared, we do not let it appear and evil things have had, we must destroy. From there, negativity thing turns into bodhi, sufferings into peacefulness, promote the Dharma in us.

After the Dharma talk, the mass entered the repentant ceremony as usual.
