The tea meditation program of “Return to listen” during this October, the practitioners had precious hours of cultivation, practice of mindfulness and nurturing compassion to send peaceful energies to the central region - where officers, soldiers and people are suffering from the heavy impact after the last storm No. 6.

Besides the cultivating period, such as chanting sutra, walking meditation, eating in mindfulness .... young people have the opportunity to open their hearts, relieve their own problems, and at the same time to gain happiness and peace through a tea meditation program with the theme of Relieving problems in the heart.

At that time, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Hoa had exciting words that aimed at the life of a person with idealism, love to others, care to parents and ancestors. The Junior Ven. also taught them how to enjoy a cup of tea. Tea meditation is not only to take a seat for enjoying a tea cup, but it is a harmony way helping us with a quiet space in order to recognize wrong percepts, clean up our offences, sufferings. It also reminds us to remember four great gratitudes.

The first sip reminded us to remember our parents, because we are their successions. The second sip reminded us to remember the belief in Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma, Sangha. The third sip reminded us to remember the people who have arrived in our life such as teachers, friends who bring happiness and even the ones who made trouble for us. We should thank all people, thanks to emotions and miseries that help us grow our maturity. The fourth sip reminded us to remember the earth, trees, flowers, and all things that helped us to have a cup of tea.

The exchanges of tea meditation took place in the friendly and warm atmosphere that the venerable has a chance to listen to suffering, the wrong perception from the young; the young have a chance to be shared, listened to by their monks. Since then, they will be calmer to overcome obstacles in life.
