Repentant Ceremony at Minh Chat  ashram in Can Tho


The monks and devout Buddhists come to the house of Ms. Duong Thi Nho, 73 years old, Ba Diem, Hoc Mon in the morning to repent at the family's invitation.

In the evening, the mass listened to a Dharma talk by Junior Thich Tam Hue, Head of the Charity Board of Hoang Phap Pagoda with the topic: A dharma propagator

A dharma propagator is any person who properly makes others understand the Dharma, regardless of leaving home person or layman. A true dharma preacher is those who are strong enough to motivate others to practice, not just stop at learning to understand.

In fact, there are situations in which lay people do the dharma propaganda work more effectively than the monastic one because they can reach any audience, anywhere. Cultivators cannot go into complicated places, cannot come into contact with stubborn people. Disciples of the Buddha, let's promote the spirit of propagating the Dhamma to save ourselves and save beings to maintain a long life of the Buddha Dharma.

After preaching, the mass chanted repentant Sutra, walked in meditation and recited Buddha's name as usual.

This occasion, Junior Ven. Thich Tam Hue gave dharma gifts to Buddhists, including some books:  Lessons of cause and effect, The Story of the Stork and other gifts.

The repentant day ended in the joys of the participants.
