In the Dharma talk, Ven. preached Buddhists the subject Blessing of Offering. According to the content of the lecture, offering has three forms, including of Giving of material, Giving of Dharma, Giving of fearlessness.

 In the Dhammapada sutra, No 254 as following:

"Alms Dharma goes beyond all the offerings
Flavor
 Dharma goes beyond all flavors
Joy Dharma transcends all kinds of happiness
Exterminating craving will end all kinds of suffering."

In the Anguttara sutra, the Buddha taught three benefits of alms to the givers and receivers:

+ Hey, Bhikkhu, to the givers, before giving, their  mind feels pleasing; at the moment of giving, their mind is pure; after giving, their mind feels happy. These are three parts of givers.

+ Hey, Bhikkhu, to the receivers, who have abandoned greed or are abandoning their greed; who have abandoned hatred or are abandoning their hatred; who have abandoned ignorance  or are abandoning their ignorance. These are the three parts of the receivers of alms.

+ Achievement of the six parts above is "the source of blessing, the good, peace, leading to the Heavenly Yard, as a blissful result, leading to heaven, obtaining happiness, as wish,  joy and peace”; because the whole great merit is unlimited, countless and immeasurable.

Cultivators in Buddhism who should practice alms, giving up greed, hatred, delusion, which helps attain the path of enlightenment, liberation according to their wishes. That is pure giving.

After the Dharma talk, the mass entered the repentant ceremony as usual.
