After finishing the incense ritual, the families\r\nrepresentatives honored to the monks to ask them for their witness to the\r\nwedding. After that, the grooms and the brides headed toward the Buddha and\r\nbowed Him to pay homage. Then, it was the ritual showing thanks to their\r\nparents and finally was the one for the groom and the bride to show their\r\nrespect to each other. At the end, they exchanged wedding rings under the proof\r\nof the Venerable.

After the petition speech from the representatives, Sen.\r\nVen. Thich Chan Tinh had some teachings. On behalf of the monks, he praised the\r\nspirit of the families for holding this wedding ceremony in pagoda. After that,\r\nhe also taught them how to build a sustainable and happy family. That happiness\r\nis not given by anyone and it doesnt depend fatefully on the date and the time\r\nof the wedding. It is brought by the actions and the behavior from each family\r\nmember. A happy family is that the members love, respect and listen to each\r\nother, and they have to know how to forgive each others mistakes.

In addition, the Ven. also reminded the young couples should\r\nbe ready themselves to be a parent in the future. Its about the keeping the\r\nmorality and five precepts. It is the responsibility of Buddhas children that\r\nthey will be to create useful citizens for family and society. If you want to\r\nattain good children, you will live ethically first and be a shining example\r\nfor your children. When they grow up, you have to care about, bring up, and\r\neducate them. The most necessary thing is each person in the family must study\r\nBuddhas Dharma, lives benignly and believes in the law of cause and effect.\r\nThe whole family all take refuge in the Three Jewels and keep the five precepts\r\nwill receive the happiness since those 5 precepts are actually the basic human\r\nmorality. Living ethically and keeping 5 precepts will supply you with peace\r\nand happiness in your current live as well as in your following lives.

The ceremony is ended in everybodys delight.
