Repentant Ceremony on May 14th, Year of Mouse

 

Before beginning the rite, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Duoc  had a dharma talk to the participants with the topic: Almsgiving.

On the enlightened path liberating from defilement and suffering by the teachings of the Blessed One, Buddhists who have a pure faith in the Triple Gem always hope to sow good seeds at the present and gain enlightenment in the future life. Among the methods shown by the Buddha, almsgiving is the leading practice in the dharma of paramita. Therefore, the Buddhist disciples should have a clear understanding of alms giving to practice following the right dharma. Next, the lecturer preached about this action. Almsgiving is to give all with loving-kindness; almsgiving is letting go, giving up greed in material things, non-attachment within possessing an asset to give. With good examples in sutra, as well as from monks venerable, the Monk helped the mass to better understand almsgiving, conditions of accomplishment and benefits of almsgiving ...

He reminded the mass in daily cultivation, we should be careful of our actions, words and thoughts, and often have habits of liking Dharma, loving Dharma, righteous thoughts and not leaving the Dharma.

The noble and ultimate purpose of the Buddhist Dharma practitioner is to lead to desire's abandon, purity of body and mind, transcending sorrow of suffering, attaining wisdom towards Nirvana.

We diligently practice in mindfulness and awareness without obtaining the result of a saint, then it will be cause and effect so that the three karmic of body, speech and thought will be pure and peaceful in this life, as well as sowing enlightenment and deliverance in the next life.

After that, the mass started the repentant rite as usual.
