Then, the mass gathered in the main hall to listen to Junior Thich Tam Dao share a brief history of the life of Buddha Shakyamuni, chanting and offering meals for lunch.

Following the ceremony of offering incense to pay respects and chanting the Buddha Birthday’s Sutra, the mass was instructed by the Venerable to sequentially bathe the Buddha's newborn statue in the chanting Namo Shakyamuni Buddha.

At the end of Buddha Bathing Ritual, the practitioners gathered in the main hall  to participate in the Dharma quiz program with shared knowledge about the life of Buddha Shakyamuni. Each Buddhist participating in the answer received souvenirs from the monks and nuns. The young people sang to offer the song "April Full Moon" to celebrate the great ceremony.
