Before that, all participants chanted the sutra named “Good omen”, and had a conversation with the monks at the yard of the main hall on the evening of March 26th, 2022. The monks answered about mentioned questions such as, select information sources in social to firmly believe in the dharma; have thoughtful views of existing reality in life; restraining oneself, using skillful language in opinions or on online forums in order to lead a happy life; and most of all, knowing how to accept your current life.

In the morning, monks instructed the participants to do exercise outside the yard of the pagoda and have meditation. After having breakfast, they swept leaves together around the pagoda yard. At 7:30 a.m., all students gathered at the Dharma-Wheel building to chant the sutra Eight Things, Compassionate mind, instructed by Junior Thich Tam Thach. Next, Junior Thich Quang An had a Dharma talk with the topic What to seek in life? To answer that question, the lecturer gave four orientals as following:

First, we need to find the ideal, the purpose of living our life. To achieve success, we must have a clear method, strive to study, train knowledge and experience for ourselves. Every successful thing has two deciding factors: preference and responsibility, of which responsibility accounts for 90%. Therefore, we must make efforts, be our own torch, not rely on, depend on anyone.

Second, one can seek its own lover. According to the Lecturer, like and love a person to satisfy human’s own emotional needs, so one should penetrate or let go when necessary to avoid hurting itself. To love and understand one, we should accept his/ her true-self; so, in any situation, let's love fully.

Third, happiness and peace are two things we need to aim for. Those two things come from within each person through the way we see and handle problems in life. Therefore, it is necessary to cherish the present moments, accept what you have, and do not seek far away.

Fourth, we need to observe ourselves again. Each person should clearly define what they need in life to make the right decisions; return to self-contemplation to cherish and nurture the love around us. On the other hand, let's be confident with our ability and our actions that have been-doing-will do, these help us to overcome adversities in life.

In the afternoon, all students had a relaxing and fun time. They can enjoy solos and ensembles as well as learn and try out ethnic musical instruments in the performance of Van Anh band. In harmony with that joyful atmosphere, all participants had the "Buddha Dharma Game" organized by the Monks. The game consists of 2 parts: multiple choice and guess words of the picture (each part has 15 questions).

This is an opportunity for practitioners to consolidate as well as supplement their knowledge of Buddhism.

Before leaving, the students were given a gift of Dharma by the Abbot, a book named Lessons for Buddhists.

The retreat ended in full of joy.
