Taking refuge in the Three Jewels is extremely importance, marking the time a person officially becomes a Buddhist. From now, all attendees have entered the Dharma house, getting a good spiritual path for their life. Therefore, the Refuge Ceremony was held very seriously and the program took place throughout the day.

After registering in the morning, participants came to the lecture halls to learn the right demeanor when they come to the pagoda, such as the manner of joining their hands, greeting, prostrating, etc,... these are very necessary and important rules, because not everyone has also  enough conditions to attend and learn these rules. Next, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Nhuan guided and explained quite thoroughly the purpose, meaning and some misunderstandings of Buddhists in the issue of Three Refuge and Five Precepts.

In the afternoon, the ceremony officially took place under the witness of Sangha at the pagoda. On behalf of the present monks, Senior Ven. Thich Chan Tinh transferred the Three Refuge and Five Precepts for the receivers. Next, the Ven. had some instruction and encouragement words to new Buddhists.

Appearing on this life, we have a lot of blessing things. For instance, we are a human beings, have enough sense organs and be heard Buddha Dharma. In particularly, we had a right belief when we returned to rely on the Three Jewels.  After attaining enlightened, the Buddha returned the palace to save His relatives and high officials. Next,  it was ordinated by the prince and princess … enough to proving that the Buddha was a great hero of  wisdom and compassion, true teachings, and a spiritual path towards enlightenment and liberation. All life, people always search for material things without real happiness. We are very fortunate to meet the teachings and come back to rely on the Buddha to find peace and happiness. By the story “The rich man and his four wives”, the Senior pointed out where is the most important factor for human life. 

Along with receiving Three Refuge, keeping on Five Precepts will help receivers have a moral life, giving himself, his family and society good values and happiness. Thanks to this, we will have the personality of a true Buddhist. Five precepts - Five basic moral principles will help receivers perfect them and lead their living to a clean and noble life.

The ceremony ended in the joy of everyone. Before leaving, new Buddhists were granted some books, such as The story of Shakyamuni Buddha, 60-year Essential Memory of Senior Venerable Thich Chan Tinh, Brief Introductions of Hoang Phap monastery, Buddha Dharma Saving My Destiny, Three Refuge and Five Precepts.
