The 47th Program of Buddha’s Dharma Light

 

\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

In this content of Buddhist Dharma Light, Junior Venerable\r\nThich Phap Dang, Board of directors deputy chief hold department manager of\r\nHoang Phap Viet Nam Buddhist Congregation, Thong Nhat district, the Abbot of\r\nHue Vien Pagoda, Thong Nhat district, Dong Nai province officially lectured\r\npagoda to answer many questions.

\r\n\r\n

Hereafter are questions in this content of Buddhist Dharma\r\nLight.

\r\n\r\n

Question 1:

\r\n\r\n

“Months ago, I promised to offer a rural pagoda one large\r\nsized picture of The Three Sages in the Pure Land in high price.

\r\n\r\n

However, I have recently faced with so many objective\r\nobstacle that I can’t keep my promise. Do I gain the guilty of breaking up it?\r\nIt is said that lying to The Three Treasures will be a severe sin. I’m very\r\ncareful but I don’t know how to do. May I be given some advice?

\r\n\r\n

We would be grateful.”

\r\n\r\n

Question 2:

\r\n\r\n

“My family members are Buddhists. My parents have kept\r\nTriratna refuge for long time ago. Im now joining in so many social affairs\r\nthat I can’t take Triratna refuge because I’m afraid of not keeping the\r\nprecepts. At present, I would like to enrich the family but my job is related\r\nto slaughtering. In my mind, I don’t want to do it. How sad and miserable it is\r\nwhen I have to take a knife to stop living. If I don’t do this job, I won’t\r\nfind others. Please instruct me how I can solve problem for family economy\r\nwithout suffering bad karma.

\r\n\r\n

I will be grateful to you.

\r\n\r\n

Question 3:

\r\n\r\n

In “Common Buddhist Study” book, Most Ven. Thich Thien Hoa\r\nmention about keeping the Eight Precepts, which means asking for the master\r\ntransferring them or doing them by oneself. Besides, I read on Buddhist\r\nwebsites informing that it is obliged to ask the venerable to do the transfer.\r\nOtherwise, the precepts will not perfect. Furthermore, when receiving Eight\r\nPrecepts,  full eight percepts must be complied with.  Why\r\nis it different in the same law? Cultivators like us who practice Buddhism may\r\nwonder about it.

\r\n\r\n

Please clear up our confusion to understand about this\r\nissue.

\r\n\r\n

I would appreciate your explanations.

\r\n\r\n
