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, important, because not everyone has also  enough conditions to attend and learn these rules. Next, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Trong, Vice Abbot of Hoang Phap Pagoda has guided and explained thoroughly the content and meaning Three Refuge Five Precepts, as well as some necessary principles for Buddha disciples.

In the afternoon, the ceremony officially took place under the witness of the Sangha at 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 lucky things, for instance, we are a human beings, to be heard Buddha Dharma and to be taken refuge in the Triple Gem ... In particularly, we had a right belief when we returned to rely on the Three Jewels. Normally, people have the thought "All religions are good", or "Having faith is good". However, when we study the Dharma, we will recognize this is a wrong perspective.This misunderstanding leads to unpredictable harm, such as, superstition or fanaticism. Moreover, those can lead to wrongdoings of morality, danger, and hurt for many people. Therefore, we must be aware of the luck of being a Buddhist disciple, because this is the path to peace, happiness in the present as well as in the future.

Along with receiving Three Refuge, keeping on Five Precepts is very extremely important. Thanks to this, we will fully have the personality of a true Buddhist. The five precepts - the 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, the Buddhists were granted with the 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.
