In the morning, he reviewed the meaning of taking refuge in Triratna and fundamentals of Buddhism to Buddhists. Besides, he also cleared up all the concerns and queries from the audience in the Q&A session.

In the afternoon, he shared about the Devatānusati including trust, morals, Dharma intellection, giving and wisdom that lay Buddhists should preserve in daily life. Trust means believing in Buddha's teaching as the way to happiness and liberation, in Triratna as the greatest shelter in life. Morals are the fundamentals, the tool helping us live with joys and safeness. Giving out concerns to tolerance practicing and detachment in mind. Wisdom is the torch light guiding us to the Path of happiness and Enlightenment. Those who preserving Devatānusati are the most illuminative and happiest ones in the world.

After that, the mass rehearsed the walking recitation under the guidance of Venerable Thich Chan Tinh.
