“For higher seeking, form-abandoning

From now we leave our family

To join the Buddha’s house

To save all living beings”

 After having entered the chanting hall, the ceremony was officially taken. One of the three has a speech about the reason they become the monk and Ven. Thich Chan Tinh accepted. He also sent back to them some advice before shaving hair.

 “Taking ordination you get out of the family, out of defilement and out of the three worlds (karma world, form world, formless world). Leaving family you cut off all attachment from a parent, sibling, relatives and grow a wider love to all living beings. Get out of the house of defilement you need to abandon all greed, hatred, and ignorance by cultivating the rules, concentration, and wisdom. When hoping to get out of the three worlds of karma, form and formless, practitioners must diligently strive to eliminate the defilement in order to attain the enlightenment.”

The Venerable praised ordination of the monks, because of enlightenment the impermanent world and the false body. A person who has understood the meaning of renunciation then reaches the ideal goal of spiritual practice. The renunciation is realizing that everything is suffering, impermanence, non-self, from which towards the path of liberation, reaching Nirvana. No one can escape the law of birth, old age, sickness, death. Therefore, we need to do useful things that are left to life. Besides, cultivators will benefit themselves, the cultivator always remember the phrase "Toward up vow to become a Buddha, toward down to help others", use the temporary body to complete the purpose of support beings.

 Please keep the primary Bodhi mind that diligently effort, do not let the five desires make themselves disoriented. The cultivator needs to take precepts as important, because this is the foundation to build a monastic house, from precepts to concentration, to develop wisdom. The cultivator who does not keep the precepts will become "the worm on lion’s body that eats its body", who destroy Buddhism. Therefore, monks need to uphold the precepts, preserve the appearance of the monk, do not bring this appearance to do wrong things of the law that affect the Sangha and the image of Buddha.

After having shaved of hair, Senior Ven. Abbot explained the meaning of the verse had uttered at the beginning of the ceremony.

The ceremony was closed with the joy of all participants.
