Dharma Talk at Phuoc Son Pagoda in Modesto - United States


During the session, the Venerable Thich Chan Tinh shared about two Buddhism assemblies: lay member and renunciant. Besides the duty of practicing for the Enlightenment, the renunciants are in charge of turning the Dharma wheel, while the lay members take the responsibilities of learning, preserving and preaching Dharma. Learning Dharma is the first step for lay Buddhists to cease all the doubts and build the corner stone of the right view/ belief to enter the Treasure house of the Dharma. After that, lay Buddhists should practice what they have studied to experience the benefits and joys that Dharma offers. Then the lay Buddhists can preach Dharma, share the benefits and happiness that they have experienced to others and help them on the Path to liberation. In order to strengthen the treasury house of Trirana, lay Buddhists also preserve the Dharma with activities as building infrastructures for worship and practice (i.e. pagoda and monastery), printing sutras, trying their best to contribute to the Buddhism which is the spiritual shelter for Vietnamese generations and others.

Ending the lecture, the Venerable presented the DVD film: ”Searching for the Enlightenment” as Dharma gift to the participants.
