In the beginning, the mass listened to a Dharma talk by Junior Ven. Thich Tam Cung, the monk of Hoang Phap Pagoda with the topic: Practice in reciting the Buddha’s name.

This is a popular method nowadays, practiced by Buddhists very diligently. Ways of reciting Buddha's name such as seeing Buddha's statue, observing the image of Buddha ... The Blessed One taught that this method is only if it is practiced, done ultimately, leads to diligence, cease lust, gain tranquility, wisdom, enlightenment and nirvana. Thus, reciting the Buddha's name without diligent effort to attain concentration and insight (the diligent mind from one day to seven days according to Amitabha sutras), it will be difficult to achieve deliverance and rebirth. This is exactly what Buddhist practitioners need to pay attention to.

The repentant day ended in the joys of the participants.

On Dec. 20th, 2020, the delegation took refuge, recited the Buddha's name and performed the creature liberation rite at Co Bac ferry, Can Tho. During the creature release, monks met and supported a fisherman boat with the amount of 800,000 VND/ day fishing, then gave the book Lessons for Youth with other gifts to this man and advised him to eat vegetarian, recite the Buddha's name, avoid killing but should free animals.

Accordingly, the delegation went to Phuoc Long pagoda in Can Tho to donate 53,500,000 VND for the Abbot to paint and reapply the Buddha statue and the main hall, preparing to welcome the year of Buffalo.

The Venerable Most praised the Buddhists' spirit of supporting the Three Jewels and reminded them to maintain their health, especially to preserve Precepts, Samadhi, Wisdom, practice Zen and Pure Land to soon attain enlightenment and deliverance.
