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 Dong 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 lucky things, for instance, we are a human beings, have enough senses and be heard Buddha Dharma. In particularly, we had a right belief when we returned to rely on the Three Jewels. Through the story “The rich man and his four wives”, the Senior Ven pointed out where is the most important factor for human life. As a Buddha's disciple, how to live we are, so that we have benefit, peace in the present and the future. Do not wait for tomorrow, but from today, let us prepare our own necessary for our 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. 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, Three Refuge and Five Precepts.
